I just came across this little tape measure notion...again. I bought a vintage sewing basket in an antique mall, quite some time ago. The box was full of sewing items. I really didn't have time to go through it in the store, but I was excited to get the sewing items home and explore the items over a cup of tea. It was a thrill at the time, but I put the sewing basket away.
Today, I found the sewing basket all over again. Inside, I had forgotten about this little ladybird tape measure. I hadn't looked too closely back then, because today I realised that the black spots on her back are for pins. The ladybird is a pin cushion too! Too Cute even though she has a missing eye, I'll have to give her some eye surgery.
