I just love these little bits of fabric. Look at the dainty flowers. I love the blue bows on this one.
She had two of these pieces, and they are longer than the one with the blue bows. I'm wondering if this may not have been from a tablecloth that had worn out, and she salvaged what she could for scarves. I'm not sure, but I do remember them being starched, and ironed 'just so', and adorning the dressers.
These mimick cross stitch.
Below is a pillowcase she embroideried. I only found one. I'm thinking one of my sisters may have the other one. This one is stained and yellow, and I was afraid to bleach it. I might try using lemon juice to see if that will take some of the dark stains off.
My mama would never have put this on a piece of furniture all wrinkled like this, but I just wanted you to see how it looks.
I need to think of a way to display these. If you have any ideas, please share with me.
Do you like old fabrics?
