May Manton 1015 - Design for embroidering a case for rubber over shoes


Another entry for the Pointless Handwork category.  As the autumn rains have started here, my mind turns to keeping my feet dry.  I don't possess overshoes, but if I did, I might make up and embroider a case for them.

It's not too late to make up a few rubber over shoes cases for Christmas giving.  Astonish your friends and family with your thoughtfulness and stubborn disregard for reality.

I've picked up vintage table runners and dresser scarves with similar embroidery designs. Perhaps fabric was less varied in times past with plain muslin being the very cheapest and therefore used for many things which women then decorated to be colorful. Or maybe people truly believed that idle hands were the devil's workshop. Thanks for sharing!
