Vintage 1957 Hiawatha Hats and Bags Town & Country Instruction Book, Designs by Melina, 8 Styles to Crochet, Mid Century Marvelous ~
I love vintage fashion photographs and couldn't resist picking up this wonderful Hats and Bags booklet, even though I don't crochet and probably never will. But the photos of the models are just fantastic!! The poses and looks on their faces are just so Mid Century, it's hard not to fall in love with this book.
Inside you'll find instructions for 8 different crochet patterns and most have 2 hats styles for each handbag. There are great names too, like "Timetable Suburbia", "Big City Charm" and "Quick Country Change".
Copyright 1957 by Heirloom Needlework Guild and printed in the U.S.A., this is Hiawatha book #154 with designs by Melina. This full sized booklet is 11" by 8 1/2" and includes 15 pages of instruction for vintage fashion accessories. It is in great vintage condition with no markings inside or out.
There is nothing better than having a piece of the past. That's the charm of vintage!

I look for Cool Finds where ever I go and I never know what I’ll run across. I find sewing boxes and so much more and realize that, being vintage, they most likely have been used and will have some wear and tear.
Buttons may have come off of a dress, coat or other article of clothing, or they might have never been used at all, like those on the original cards. Books may have been handled and gone through over and over.
I describe my items as well as I can for you and do try to point out any flaws of any kind.
