Ma's inventory pillow

Laundry inventory pillows were used in colonial time.

A straight pin was affixed to the appropriate number

beside each item sent for washing.

After the items were cleaned,

the pillow and pins helped to make sure

everything was accounted for. 


I decided to create a laundry pillow

in relation with Laura Ingalls's wardrobe .

Pattern available



Enjoy stitching my friends !!!
