Like mid-century housewives across the country, Betty often finds herself behind her Singer sewing machine. Many afternoons have been spent creating the perfect cocktail dress for an upcoming party or stitching charming pillows for her couch. Some of her friends have even been the lucky recipients of one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts!
But, if the thought of sewing leaves you in stitches, don't despair! With these modern fabric designs and stylish patterns your next retro handbag is just a few snips away. The next time someone asks how you came up with the idea for your lovely new curtains, don't lie, just embellish!
