Saturday, Dec. 17th..was just over at Tropical Screamer's blog, and she was talking about old buttons. The link to her is on my sidebar. She prompted me to remember to share a few more of my "oldies but goodies" with you, since this is the season for sharing and for goodies. I don't exactly collect old pin cushions, but I do have a few. The little girl in the red hat is my favorite. She's made of muslin, red wool, well used ribbons and a bit of embroidery floss. I'm not sure what her hair is made of, it's NOT yarn. Feels more like old rayon stocking..predating nylons. I stuck in a couple of darning thread spools, a couple of button cards and a home made slipper pin cushion. The black box says "Fancy Hoisery" One dozen, size 4 1/2 and a price of 35 cents each. The embroidery floss is a brand called Princess. It's color 334 "rope", and has 8 yards in the package. No price on that one. It doesn't appear to be a kind that you could seperate the strands. How about the rest of you?? Have any oldie and goodie sewing bits and pieces to share??
