I’ve grouped these two sewing items into one listing -- there’s a neat tatting shuttle and a thimble! The shuttle is green plastic and was made by “The Boye Needle Co, Chicago”. It’s in very good condition with some places that appear to have been caused by a hot needle – probably checking to see if it was Bakelite (it’s not). The thimble is stamped “10, Germany”. Neat items!

I’ve grouped these vintage patterns into one listing! The sticky notes you see on the pattern envelopes are my notes made when I looked at the patterns – I didn’t want to forget between the time I looked at them and actually wrote the item description!
