Sewing-An Applique Chair Cover


This clipping is one of a bundle I won on eBay, accumulated over a thirty year period by someone who loved needlework. "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" is on the back and from the typeface it is from the early 30's, and it appears to be from a syndicated newspaper column but I haven't been able to find anything about a quilting writer named "Winifred Avery". Left click to enlarge or go to my Flickr account for a larger image.

How cute is that? I've been thinking of crocheting some chair covers but that has me wondering if I'd rather sew some up.
