New Patterns from Arthelia's Archives!

I am always trying to come up with new accessory items to add to my shop. My Mother recently sent me another of JoHanna's patterns. I think since the snood pattern has been so popular I think these goodies will be too! This pattern is from 1945 and I have scanned up a few pictures of several of the pretties I would like to make up first.

This first one is a fancy snood attached to a headband, studded with beads and has a matching purse. The suggested color is hunter green and is exactly the color I imagined for it before even reading the pattern. Can't you see it with a beautiful Holiday gown this winter?

Next, is a wonderfully unique 4 piece set consisting of a hair comb, earrings, choker necklace, and bracelet. It is done in pink with black velvet trims. I think it is utterly charming and can't wait to see it worked up. Have you ever seen anything so fabulously forties and feminine?

There are several other jewelry set like this in the book too!

Next are several darling headbands. Ribbed, flowered, and sequined...what could be better? I am really exited to have this pattern! It is like nothing I have seen before and am looking forward to being able to offer them to you in my shop. Their are also some wonderful glove patterns, rosettes and bows for adorning your dresses and sweaters, and a stunning lace crochet blouse! Be sure and post your favorites too!
