No needle worker back in the 1920's and 1930's would be worth her stitches if she didn't have a Sewing Basket stocked with pins, needles, spools of thread, scissors, buttons, and scraps of flour sack fabrics.
My Mother's Sewing Basket was a treasure chest for me as a young girl in the early 1950's. It is no wonder that I have carried on the tradition of Sewing Baskets. Notice I said Baskets!
There will be a dozen or so of these Needle Books ready for my Booth at the
Chicken Farm Art Center's First Saturday Sale this coming Saturday.
Nearly every Needle Case made so far has a few scraps of 'Blue'. What is now referred to as '1930's Blue' was a popular color during the 1930's and 1940's production of 'Feed Sack' prints. It was also a favorite color to use in Grandmothers Flower Garden and Double Wedding Ring Quilts. Lucky me...I have original 1930's Scraps of both patterns.
Won't they make a nice gift for a 'Needle Worker's Sewing Basket?
Betcha Sally has a 'Blue Sewing Basket'!
