Washday Accessories 18" Doll Accessories

3   |  

What was washday like in the 1930s and 1940s? If you were lucky, you had a wringer washer; otherwise, you would boil water to wash your clothes! A dryer? Think again! Clothes were hung outside on a clothesline....better hope it doesn’t rain!

So cute!

Completed the apron and clothes pin bag in complementary fabrics and a 1930 dress in opposite colors. So cute, clear directions and very easy! I reduced the clothes pin bag to 45% as I thought it was out of scale and it turned out super cute!
