This 28-page pattern and instruction book was published in London in 1976. The designs are by Elizabeth Coe. There are detailed instructions and patterns for clothing embellishment, bags and totes, toys and dolls, kitchen and household accessories, furniture and home accessory recovering, and art applique pictures such as the Chinaman cutting bamboo scene and raised (trapunto) applique schoolhouse shown in the last photo. An amazing number of projects for a book of such relatively small size. Some of the designs are very retro but most are timeless. Book is in excellent condition. $2.75 first class shipping in USA plus 85¢ optional insurance.
