This great collection from 1953 includes a wall pincushion, a wrist pincushion, a tailor's ham, a pressing mitt, a sewing kit that holds thread, notions, and tools, and a sewing machine cover with a sunflower that snaps on. And of course, the theme is sunflowers. :)
This 1972 collection of sewing accessories features a sewing room organizer, wall-hanging style, with pockets for notions, and tools, and elastic holders for thread. The charming bird pincushion is "Sewphie" the sewing bird, with its beak as a scissors holder, its comb as a place for thimbles, and its tail as a holder for a tape measure. The wings hold tailor's chalk, and rings on the sides of the head hold safety pins. The head and body are stuffed, with the head as the primary pin cushion.
Clever and useful! They would make great gifts, too, don't you think?
