Old Favourites

A love of collecting vintage sewing
tools, books, patterns
has always included searching
for vintage sewing accessories
to make.
I have a collection of felt
needlecases which include
the ever-popular
bonnet lady needlecases
and wide-brimmed hat needlecases,
I found these two patterns in
a vintage Madame Weigel's
(Australian magazine) Journal
of Fashion - October 1, 1945.
Here they are for you to enjoy.

Oh this is so sweet, Marian! I would like to have a go at the Sunbonnet Sue version, but I can't follow those instructions well enough to get cutting. I've bee spoiled by tutorials on the internet, using photos of every step of the way!
