Some Old Men

822

I have made a few cards from vintage knitting patterns.

You can see the documents below, so you know what they looked like before I cut them up.

The no-longer-available Sylko thread is beautiful, giving the smoothest stitching experience I have ever had. Fact not euphemism.

Printed around 1965, is my guess, since the prices are ‘old money’.

I have paired them up with those Waverly envelopes.

All of my work is individually numbered. The camera guy is 822, the older man is 823, and, the pipe man is 824.

They may be used as Father’s Day cards, or they may not, and will start appearing in my Folksy Shop over the next few days.

 

Waverley Envelopes

Found these in a Bromley charity shop recently. Very pleased.

They were made by Waverley, in Scotland, and have the serial number 4656.

Spent an evening searching online, but found zero information regarding a manufacture date. My guess would be late seventies or early eighties.
