Six strips of ribbon tied around pieces of card. The ribbons are part of a collection of sewing materials which came with a toy sewing machine made by Mueller and possibly dating from the 1930's. The sewing machine actually works. The ribbons are made of a variety of fabrics and are yellow, pink, purple and cream in colour. The pieces of card are cut from a packet for Quaker Oats, implying that the ribbons were not originally on these particular pieces of card. Each ribbon is fastened around the piece of card with a metal pin. Total number of items is 6.
Donated to the Museum of Childhood by Mr G. E. Orchard in October 2010.
