I got a very thoughtful present from someone last week that I absolutely love. It is a re-issue of the 1941 sewing handbook Sew and Save. That's right, a sewing handbook. It was published after WW2 to help women make the best of what they had, which at that time, was very little. I have always been a very big fan of sewing, making and altering things, but this book goes that little bit further. It has tips on how to store your clothes during the winter as well how to adjust hats and even how to make your own underwear. If you're at all into sewing you should get yourself to a library and pick up this charming little book.
