Thank you for visiting Paper Lantern Patterns!
My name is Carrie and I'm a work-from-home, homeschooling mom of 2.
I got hooked on collecting old patterns several years ago when I came across a huge box stuffed full of old patterns on the side of the road after a yard sale...they were being thrown away!!
It was just starting to rain and we were leaving the sale when I saw them there starting to get wet; I knew they would all be completely ruined in no time. I just couldn't bear to leave them there, probably collected over one persons lifetime. The patterns dated from the 30's through the 80s!
Although I do sew, I've never before used a pattern, but I just love the look and the idea of patterns, they're like little packages from history…
