One potato...

Last year at my public library's used book sale some really fun old children's arts & crafts books decided that they had to come home with me, and seeing that they were such a bargain I couldn't argue! One of the books was "Potato Printing", written by Susan Strose. It is part of the Little Craft Book Series published in 1968 by Sterling Publishing Co., Inc. This post reminded me that I wanted to share the book with you. I do hope that I am not infringing on any copyright permissions by sharing these page shots (click on photos to enlarge).

Thanks to Caitlin Mociun, I now not only want to try potato printing on paper but also to make a stylin' top or dress. Stay tuned for project updates.*

*Knowing the way I work, don't expect to see an update for MONTHS. Seriously. It takes me ages to finish a project.

Now that is a fantastic book...I'm very jealous...I have a soft spot for vintage craft books.

Heb, wait until I post about the other books I got at library sales... hand-carved stamps, macrame, thumbprint pictures, printmaking... stay tuned!
