Woman’s World Book of New Designs in Needlework,1922

On Saturday I received a package from my friend, Patty, with two cute feedsacks I’d purchased from her Etsy shop (Patalier). Patty always includes a few vintagy surprises for me, and this time there were skeins of vintage perle cotton, gathered eyelet edging, two sweet hostess aprons (for a later post), and this l922 soft cover book. I know . . . she’s an amazing friend!

The poor book was in kind of rough shape with lots of tears, but Patty knows how much I love these illustrations from the 1920s, so I spent several happy hours digitally restoring my favorite pages. As usual, click to enlarge the images.
