Accessory Mystery Revealed!







Lazy me. I saw muff-bags in the Complete Book of Sewing and thought, "What the heck is a muff-bag?". Several alert and energetic readers sent me links and pictures. (And my daughter commented,"What, is your Google-finger broken?")



Myra from Adventures in Baby-Sewing sent the following link, which shows a very attractive muff-bag: http://www.ioffer.com/i/vintage-crochet-pattern-pillbox-hat-muff-bag-purse-40s-182841426
Pictured at the top.












And I am fortunate that I did not title my post with what is a muff-bag. because it turns out to have more than one meaning. A NSFW meaning. Goodness, someone get the smelling salts for Miss Talbot. Conveniently stashed, along with streetcar fare and a compact, in your muff-bag.

Y'know, I had a sneaking suspicion that googling "muff bag" would only result in horror, so I curbed my initial instincts and didn't do it. So glad someone else was brave enough to do it for us.

You are so correct - I had to carefully survey which to open :0
