Lambie Pie, from a 1938 pattern

Lambie Pie, from a 1938 pattern

This snuggly little fellow, from a 1938 pattern, was created from a wonderful old piece of robin’s egg felted wool that I found at Baer’s fabric store during a visit to Louisville.

Sadly, Baer’s closed last year, and I got by there on one of the last days. It was one of those grand old downtown stores that sold “piece goods” — they grow scarcer every day. I bought the bolt that produced Lambie Pie.

Add a little chocolate brown felt and a few stitches of hand embroidery, and voila! A first toy for my godson, Hank. 

 

Lambie Pie's little bell is securely attached to a brown rayon ribbon, from Martha Stewart crafts.

I collect original old patterns (I’ll be sharing my creations from them here), but I have been known to acquire a good copy, including the one for Lambie Pie. It came from MJ’s Vintage Patterns  on eBay — well worth a visit. MJ’s patterns come come complete with a color copy of the front cover (below).
