1950 Quick Tips in Crochet
The Coats and Clark's Quick Tips in Crochet series features patterns for household items and accessories, many with flower motifs. This 1950 book has patterns for potholders and hot pads, along with covered hangers, handbags, nut cup, a corsage, an apron, and a tiny doll curtain pull. There are crocheted jewelry items that would look great today, along with a pair of flowered slippers which are crafted by sewing the crocheted pieces onto a wedge shoe sole.
