- It houses some of my favorite "things"
- I get to use my creativity there and "create"
I often go through them just to look and touch and admire.....
I love to look at the fun pictures on the front of the pattern envelopes and look at the cool hair-dos, the vintage clothing styles and the fun color and fabric suggestions.
I love to think about the ambitious lady (mom? teen?) who carefully selected the pattern which reflected her style, made her look in-style, and kept her frugal: homemade saved a lot of money. When I open the envelope I find the carefully cut-out pattern pieces, all accounted for, carefully folded and stored. Who knows, perhaps she used the same pattern more than once. I wonder what fabrics she selected and how precise her stitches were on the finished clothing article.
In short: each pattern represents a fascinating story.
