A Frog from the Past

One last antique store photo from my recent road trip. This one is from a store in the town adjacent to my hometown:

That location data is relevant because this homemade stuffed frog is clearly based on the pattern every 7th grade girl in my school's home economics class had to use. Including me. 

So yes, I made a frog just like this one — except for the fabric choice — and it drove me from sewing and home ec for good, as I've mentioned before.

I don't know for sure that this plaid frog was made by a girl from my school, but I'd be willing to bet some money that it was.
