Sewing mystery's

Hi friends!
I worked on baby things yesterday.
I made burp cloths to match the bibs!
Bond this!
And ironed this!
I put pins in all the places that had come un-sewed.
When i turned it over i noticed this.
Some of the outside seams are done on a machine.
Tommy knew nothing about it, makes me wonder if maybe his grandmother made these and his mother fixed them at one time. Or if these were done by his mother when she was learning at a young age? I know she had a sewing machine and i though his grandmother had a treadle but that may have been his mother's to.
Makes me wish i could have asked them. I never saw these until after we moved over here and his mother wasn't talking by then.
Have as good one

Awe - I love the baby things. And I wish I could ask a couple questions too - things we don't think about. Lovely.
