Stars and Stripes Embroidery
Donated by Jimmie Loyd (S-79-34-3)
This circa 1900 embroidered sampler was sold as a ready-to-make kit. Sears and Roebuck listed similar items in their 1902 catalog as "sofa cushion covers." The design to be embroidered was stamped on the front fabric; a back fabric was also part of the kit.
