Fast and Easy Gift Ideas from Wrights

Wrights, founded in 1897, sold pre-measured lengths of trim wound around little cardboard rectangles in flat little packages making distribution possible to even the most remote department, dime and dry goods stores. These ingenious packages are the same trims we buy today. 

Wrights Trims and Laces

To encourage the use of these packaged products Wrights published patterns that used their trims. These little pamphlets were distributed at fabric stores and anywhere a notions display of Wrights trims happened to be. Others were included in the packages.

Wrights Sunburst Apron

Easy to make and economical, Wrights patterns were perfect for the 1950's homemaker. This Sunburst Apron pattern is quite sophisticated with it's dimensionality. Definitely one to make for anyone's retro apron collection.

Wrights Terry Guest Towels

These sweet little Finger-Tip Guest Towels with minimal embroidery are easily made with Wrights Bias Tape. Download the entire brochure with these and other fun Gifts and Bazaar Ideas HERE.
