An apron which every mother will appreciate is a bath-apron (No. 2401 N) to use when bathing or caring for the baby. It is made of white Turkish bath-toweling; and the qaint bunny pockets are of white flannelette outlined in black, and with eyes and mouth in pink satin-stitch. Pink crepe is used for lining the pert, upstanding ears of friend Peter, whom all the wee ones know & love. The shoulder straps are of strong tape. Buttonholes are worked, one at each corner of the bib. and one at each side of apron and at the waistline under arm. Cut a lining of rubber sheeting, the same size as the apron, bind this with bias tape, & sew on buttons to correspond with the buttonholes. If desired, the entire apron may be made of flannelette instead of toweling. Perforated stamping-pattern of pocket, 15 cents. Hot-iron transfer pattern of pockets, 10 cents. Stamped on Turkish toweling, with material for pockets, $1.35. Floss to embroider, 8 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.
