McCall Kaumagraph Transfer 588 - Cover Design for Hot-Water Bag


I'd guess the early to mid 19-teens.

It's not precisely a pattern, but the idea of dressing up your hot water bottle is just so appealing at this time of year.  I'd do mine in pink flannel with the embroidery in white.

I haven't even seen a hot water bottle in ages. I remember as a child I had a little pink one (My brother's was blue. Of course!) This post has made me nostalgic for hot water bottles... I want to go out and buy one for each of my children. And of course make adorable little covers for each of them too♥

We have one around somewhere but it's probably so old the rubber might well be brittle or fused to itself. I think it belonged to my grandmother, who died in 1970.

What a fabulous pattern! I love it. Pink and white would be just perfect.
I remain most impressed with your ability to find all these wonderful patterns.
