>Selected for Service- Gifts to Sew for the WWII Serviceman

>With just a few days until Christmas I’ve been scratching my head for things to post!  My holiday prep is way behind, I have done no sewing for myself, and I keep posting catalog images so have been craving a change!
I went and rummaged in my bookshelves and pulled out this cute little vintage booklet from 1942 of “Gifts You can Sew.”  Here’s a few cute last minute projects- perfect for WWII re-enactors or your “man in khaki or sailor in blue”.   Hey, maybe you might even want to make that sewing kit for yourself 😉

    >This post is a good reminder that this is a time to be thankful for all that we have! It makes me so sad to think of women making these items to send their boys off to war.

    >Oh my gosh, I love the book cover! It seems so extraneous and silly, but at the same time, I'd imagine it is exactly those extra loving attentions to the little things are what bear the greatest reminders of home & a loving wife 🙂
