I have some wonderful memories sitting with my Mum learning how to sew, she still has some of the little things that I made her as gifts for Christmas and birthdays. I used this book with my own three daughters and intend to use it for the Grandchildren. There is a wonderful pattern for a Norwegian bonnet that I can remember making for a badge at Brownies.
It shows you all the stitches for embroidery and cross stitch and actually asks What would you like to make first?
Apparently I loved making pin cushions and funnily enough I am still drawn to pin cushions now, there is nothing nicer than a novelty pin cushion.
For the first time in this series of vintage patterns I don't wonder about its history or who had it before me...I know. My elder sister had it for a short while but was never really interested in sewing so it was passed to me and cherished. Here it will stay safe and secure ready for the next generation of little hands ready to stitch.
Hope you all have a wonderful Bank Holiday Weekend.
See you soon.
