COLLECTION #232: Vintage Sewing Ephemera



I have a few vintage sewing and home decorating items in my ephemera stash. Not being a sewer or needlecrafter, I'm not usually on the lookout for sewing items, but as usual, these have kind of fallen into my lap through the years.

I'll just let the pictures do the talking, enjoy!

Fun children's patterns from the '30s and '40s. The one on the right is for Shirley Temple dolls.

Two home decorating booklets from the 1950s

Making draperies looks like drudgery to me! 

Fun ideas for slipcovers and trims!



Note the felt Mexican jacket on the right, just like mine!
