My maternal Nan, Daisy Fleming, nee Morgan, was always making lovely things out of very little.
The old black and white photo below shows Nana in her handmade patchwork "fancy dress"
This is a photo of the same dress today.
And some closer detail
Nana also used to make "hankie boxes" from old cards. She would cut the cards to shape and sandwich them between 2 sheets of hard plastic. Holes punched around the edges were used to stitch the pieces together.
The box is these photos is showing its age but its a wonderful keepsake.
