I came across this pattern in the January, 1953 issue of The Workbasket. The official name of the pattern is -- Belt in Crochet with Purse. And then, it dawned on me. A Belt in Crochet with Purse in 1953 is more or less the same as what we called a Fanny Pack in the 2000's. Is it still called a Fanny Pack?
I thought you might enjoy the pattern and have scanned the entire page, complete with some old advertisements, for you viewing and/or Crocheting Pleasure.
Thanks for dropping by,
