You may recall that the last time I posted about this book I wasn’t totally certain that I was actually sewing with the book in question. Well, earlier this week I found the title page, so now I know that these illustrations were indeed drawn by the great Percy Drake Brookshaw.
Anyway, I’ve made some more postcards using the same fabrics I used here.
The pink floral fabric, which I’ve never mentioned before, was my daughter’s blouse. It was a gift from a friend, and my daughter wore it for her sixth birthday party. She is now eleven.
Pretty cool to think that these pages are exactly fifty years old. John and Jane feature quite heavily, John getting excited when the postman arrives, and Jane going to the shops with a shilling.
Now that my son has taught me how to cut and paste, I should be able to put them into my shop more easily!
Have a great weekend,
