Really enjoyed reading all of the facts and history Allison shared with us yesterday. So interesting. I think the thing that always strikes me when I read about WWII, is how the civilians all worked together through the war and really made it a team effort. Civilians made sacrifices for our soldiers, such as rationing and victory gardens, and were really engaged in what was going on. Women played a very strong role working in the factories, and picking up the jobs that men typically did. The country really rose to the occasion and supported one another. It was interesting to learn that sewing was actually a very important and necessary skill. Out of necessity, that skill supported the country and women bonded together. I’ve enjoyed reading the sewing memories that you have been sharing in the Giveaway section. I remember, when I was a little girl in the 70s helping my mom cut out patterns at the kitchen table so she could make me that special dress or rag doll. I still have everything she’s ever sewn for me, and appreciate the time and love that went into it.
Sewers and non-sewers alike will enjoy this new line!
And, similar to how things were done in the 40s, how about re-purposing the packaging? The packaging closes with this fun disc and string attachment-I simply took it off and added it to this cardstock envelope I fashioned..
Love the color of this foil! I can fill a lot of cute tags, paper dolls or dress patterns in this envelope! Hmmm….liking the tape used there too…..
Be sure to check back all week long for more history tidbits from Allison and sneak peeks. Also, be sure to subscribe to our blog-you’ll be entered into this week’s drawing! Would love to hear any of your sewing memories too!
