First, there is the deep-pocket or work-bag-apron (No. 2399 N) to wear when you are knitting or darning or for holding clothespins. It is made of unbleached muslin, and the design is done in running-stitches with bright-colored wool, the edges simply turned under and blanket-stitched in one of the colors of wool. The belt crosses in the back & comes around to the front, where it buttons. It may be almost made "in a minute" so rapidly is the embroidery accomplished, and will prove a most delightful addition to the gift-box as well as to one's own home wardrobe.

Perforated stamping-pattern, including cutting lines, 35 cents. Hot-iron transfer-pattern, including cutting-lines, 30 cents. Stamped on unbleached muslin, 60 cents. Silk-finished wool to embroider, 60 cents. Pattern was 12 cents. A catalog showing all available styles was only 10 cents when accompanied with a pattern order or 12 cents without pattern order.

This illustration is from a 1924 issue of NEEDLECRAFT MAGAZINE, Augusta, Maine. This 13"t x 10.5"w magazine includes directions for crochet, knitting & craft designs. Also offers tons of embroidery patterns for sale.
