Amongst my recent needlework book buys have been several vintage 30s home sewing tomes. I adore their quirky projects, & whilst I may not hanker after duchess sets, antimacassars or nightdress cases, there are plenty of cute projects my stitching fingers are itching to try. The little felt "Poke Bonnet Needlecase" above is the first. She has a little felt bonnet to hold a thimble & layers of felt petticoats for needles. Just the right size for scraps of felt & trims & oddments of embroidery thread. She was easy, quick & fun to make. More vintage 30s projects coming soon.
