Take a Word: Sewing

I'm usually stumped when a challenge theme is related to sewing. Sewing is not one of my talents, sorry to say. But I found these charming images of vintage sewing magazines and thought they'd be fun to display on an image of a vintage pattern. Images from magazineart.com and google.

Modern magazine covers are so predictable and boring. These vintage pieces are wonderful. Oh for a return to the good old days!! Sherry, your collage is superb.
