This is a Make Do and Mend booklet which dates from the wartime 1940s era in the Uk when everything was scarce and rationed including fabric and yarn, and families had to econmise and reuse, mend and adapt items they already had as new ones were not available. The booklet includes instructions and ideas of how to darn, mend and cut exisitng clothing to make new types of cltohes. It is the origin of a lot of our reuse, recycle and upcycling ideas today- a period gem
