Sources for my vintage projects in the last post
The felt skate (shown above) is a pattern called Silver Skate Boot, from McCall's Christmas Make-It Ideas, Volume X1. I believe this magazine is from 1968; that's what my great-aunt had written on the front. I actually found this magazine on Amazon, I think for $4.99, but you could probably find it on either Etsy or eBay as well. Here's the Amazon link: McCall’s Christmas Make-It Ideas Volume X1.
And the crocheted snowflake hot mat came from Annie's Pattern Club Newsletter, Volume 1, No. 6 (December 1980). I found several sources for that on Etsy, so you could do a search there, or try one of these sources: Snowflake Hot Pad pattern on eBay (I think it was around $12-$14 here) or Treasured Heirlooms Crochet which has it for $6.99.
Have fun with these vintage patterns if you try them! I'm also sharing this information today at Vintage Charm.
