I didn't have a pattern but used the you tube video as a guide. I've made three so far and have another one cut ready to sew.

  5. Foxing on Fabric

Then she takes a cotton swab and puts a dot of hydrogen peroxide on it, rinsing immediately. Repeat as needed. I know this topic comes up from time to time here on the QB. If you have only

I found out it's a boy, and their choices for baby "stuff" was more browns and blues, etc., so this one didn't really fit them. )

Size:  106.8 KB are the measurements for the board we had made for our ironing board. Only 1/2 inch plywood
    was used and held on with three pegs which turn to undo. Covered with a layer of batt, folded in half - therefore two
    layers, and silver iron cover stapled onto the bottom of the board. Light enough and Easy to lift off when I need to do shirts, etc.

    Most of these have so many variations - many of them quite easy to do.

    I do not think that anyone can compile a "complete" encyclopedia of block patterns. It seems like someone is always coming up with a variation of an old pattern - or giving an old pattern a different/new name.

    If one wants to use graph paper for doodling with the LeMoyne star, I've found that if I
