Time for Another Nostalgic Sunday
Off and on for the past couple of years, I've thought about the cardboard sewing cards I had when I was a little girl. They were lightweight cardboard, about 6" square, and had drawings on them, with holes punched in certain areas. The set also came with colorful yarn lengths that had the little plastic coating at the ends, so they wouldn't unravel.

Here's one from Back 2 Vintage
See the "sewing" around Wendy on the left, and the tea pot on the right? I didn't have these exact cards, but I had hours of fun with mine. They were great because they could be used over and over.
Another favorite of mine....Paper Dolls!
And I LOVED the Lennon Sisters.
My family watched them every week on
The Lawrence Welk Show.
Since I had two older sisters, I always felt like I was Janet,
the youngest Lennon sister.
We even sang and harmonized a little bit.
I have such wonderful memories of my early years.
What about you? Did you have sewing cards and/or paper dolls? What were your favorites?
