mom's scraps--part five
More bow ties from my mother's scraps. They include fabrics from her mother and mother-in-law, including true feedsack from which they fed the chickens!
It is interesting the variety of textures in cotton fabrics of the 1950s and 1960s. The weaves, slubs, thread changes all add to the interest.
When I touched the top right fabric of the second picture, there came a flood of memories of lying with my face on her lap in church.
