These two patterns are ones that have been in storage from my mother's box of 'stashed patterns'. They are embroidery transfer . Simplicity 9480 and Simplicity 5175. They are ones that she used to help teach me.
Over the past almost 50 years they have been stored in many homes and various environments - pet environments and previously smoking environment. They have been sealed in a pattern storage box in a closed closet for the past 6 years.
As with all the patterns I have dug-out to present, these have been used. We are methodical about putting all the pieces back into their respective envelopes . I have not gone back through them, however, to assure that absolutely every piece is included.
My goal is to 're-home them' so that they can hopefully be used for continuing teaching tools of for making gifts for other people. They have great memories tied-in with them.
