How to Make a Hand Mirror Cover Pattern

Back in the 60's and into the 70's we girls had round mirrors with handles and, if we were real lucky, our Moms decorated these, often to look like ourselves.   You know, you hold it up and look in the mirror and another girl is looking back at you.  

Here's a pattern to craft one for your special girl.   I'm sure this type of mirror ... one with a handle ... is still available !   It just takes some yarn, some felt, a little ribbon and whatever other adornments you'd like to add. 

This pattern is from American Thread Book 195, Make it with Aunt Lydia's Rug Yarn, issued back in the 1960s as advertising promotion.   If you'd like to see what else is available in this book, just click on the above link. 

Have fun crafting !
