I have decided to participate in the I love to read challenge by The Scientific Seamstress. We are to pick our favorite book and make ourselves something out of her patterns to represent the book.
I don't have a favorite book, however I do have a favorite author, Edgar Allen Poe. When I told my mother about the challenge, I didn't even have to tell her what book or author. I discovered his writing in school. He was required reading and I was thankful for it. The first story I read of his was The Fall of the House of Usher. I found it horrifying and morbid. I loved it! Ha ha. Intrigued, I rummaged through all of my mother's books and found a Complete Stores edition in her classic book collection. Needless to say, I read the book many times and staked my claims to the book when she was ready to get rid of it. I still have the copy today.
The Rosetta has 3 sizes to the pattern. I made the medium with six pockets on the inside. (I love pockets)

I couldn't just stop at one, so I made a mini-size for a doll. The pattern does not include this size and I have a deeper respect for Carla Hegeman Crim, the pattern designer!
