Free Pattern - Vintage Floral Bathroom Set to Crochet

I know that ads can seem annoying when you view my blog. However, when you click on an ad, it generates funds which can be used to protect & save animals in need.

The profits from the sales of my Etsy vintage patterns are also used in support of rescue animals.

Please share my blog with friends & family to assist in this effort,
