The Mary Frances Booklets


I found a few other Mary Frances booklets while on my pattern search, though they are not  sewing or knitting related they are vintage and free and utterly adorable, so worth sharing as they make up the set of children's books!

  1. Hi! I have a reprint of the sewing book and have had some of these on my wish list for ever. So thank you so much for this and all you do!

  2. I'm a little disappointed they didn't Go There and subtitle the first-aid book "Adventures Among the Injured People," or something.
