Old Sewing Patterns! How Exciting!!!

For the July 4th weekend, my brother was able to make a trip up from TX. to visit us!!! It was SO Great to see him! I really miss him a lot!
On his way up to visit, he stopped by our grandparents place and they sent some stuff up here with him for us, my sister, and parents. I was expecting most of it to be old canning jars, so was very surprised to see old games, dishes, etc, mixed in the boxes!

But the most exciting one, was when I opened one box and found it filled with these...........


Sewing patterns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How neat! All are women's and girls patterns and a lot of the little girls patterns are size 6 which is perfect! most of the women's patterns are around size 10 so I think I could make them work for me! I am going to share the patterns with family with they would like them too! =)

If you can see the pictures well, you can tell that most of them are pretty old too!
But they are soooo cute!
I was glad to see the girl night gowns patterns, since I would love to make the girls flannel nightgowns!


I would guess they are between 15 and 50 year old patterns here! My grandma wrote on one, that she had made it for my aunt when she was little! Several of the women dress patterns, I remember my great grandma wearing the dresses when I was little!
I hope I can get some fabric and material now to make some things this winter! =)
