While I was visiting my mom last weekend, she thought I’d enjoy looking at her copy, which she shared with her younger sister, of McCall’s “Giant Golden Make-It Book.” Published in 1953, the book was a go-to source for children when they wanted to craft, learn crafting skills, or simply find something fun to do on a Saturday afternoon. From simple sewing to baking basics, the book covers it all. My mom’s copy is worn from hours upon hours of use, but I don’t think I’d have it any other way.
I’ve posted two more photos here, but you can see even more from the book over on Flickr.
