Here's a picture of Andy's little hand next to the print on the pattern; they are about the same size! I imagine that a Mother in 1919 was making this pattern for her little boy and he put his hand on the piece. After nearly 100 years, the oils from his hand darkened into this amazing print. I love this pattern even more knowing that it has this little bit of history on it. Here's the pattern I'm making:
I found a soft-as-flannel houndstooth brown and tan cotton and I have brown velveteen for the trim. I will make the long sleeve version and try to find some wooly knee socks to go with it.
I hope you enjoyed this episode of CSI: Sewing!
