A Thrifty Housewife - 1908

Hints and tips

A Thrifty Housewife - 1908 If the fine striped linen covering of your old mattress, "thrift" is rather worn I am afraid it would be bad policy to attempt to utilise it for pillow and bolster slips as the feathers would be constantly finding their way out. Would it not be better to buy new ticking, and then use the linen as inner covers to protect ticking and feathers alike from dust? If this plan does not commend itself, you might make cushions for bedroom or kitchen chairs of the material.
