This pattern sort of goes along with yesterday's completely unnecessary stocking entry.
Belding's Book of Silk Embroidery, Knitting, & Crochet
Pretty lousy scan but when people give you copies of copies of copies it's kinda hard to fix them up.
I keep threatening to make these. I suppose you could subsitute a few of strands of embroidery floss if you can't find silk in the right colors. Lavender elastic is a little harder to find. I've only bought white and black around here in the Four Corners of Hell where the Vintage Stitch-O-Rama calls home. I don't know if I'd go to as much trouble with the flowers. That would depend on how dorky a mood I'm in.
