The pattern for these two types of housewifes was developed from originals belonging to individual private collectors. The Confederate Housewife was made for a young soldier by his sister before he died in 1864. The other is a typical roll-up style found during the 19th century and beyond. Either one can be made of silks, wools, or cottons. Needleholder should be made of wool.
