Workbasket Magazine - February 1945

Workbasket, February 1945.  Projects include the crocheted bathroom set pictured here, a knitted sleeveless pullover, knitted bandeaus ("very slick with the new flat-top hair-dos") and an applique basket quilt (which has been posted before).

I have read that any issues from the war years are rare because of the paper drives that prompted families to empty out their attics and basements of stacks of magazines and newspapers.  Four double pages are on my Flickr account and can be printed off and stapled together to create a reasonable facsimile of the original.

Next week - July 1945.  Yes, I'm missing a few copies.
