Some FO's from 2013 posted in 2017?!?!

Asalamu alaikum,

I saved this draft in 2014 people! Wow, I am an excellent procrastinator! I am trying to clean up my drafts folder and get back to blogging, I miss it and often wonder why I have stopped and basically ignored it for three years. I think I will go and post an obligatory update post, but for now enjoy these long time finished FOs-



I have long been a bit obsessed with Crinoline women designs/motifs. I just love the way they look, so feminine, dainty. So when I found a booklet called Crinoline Lady in Crochet, over at the Antique Pattern Library(free download because it is now in the public domain!) I started right away!

Here is a doily with two women holding fans to cover their faces.

Another motif, I knocked together the smaller version based off the larger original pattern. Then I hand stitched them to a mobile case and draw string makeup pouch for SIL #3.
