i was delighted to be given the complete family sewing book... a practical and enjoyable approach to fashion, from 1979. it was rescued from the recycling bin and handed to me "because i sew." this book is a true gem. it's 500 yellowing pages with pink and blue illustrations of sewing and craft supplies. the illustrations are great, and the words are almost just as great, so i decided to cut it up and create cards out of it. for the cards i used french paper, a michigan paper company. here's a peek of the few i've been making.
