Coincidentally, another friend alerted me to a unique vintage Singer collectible commonly used back in the day for cutting out Paper Dolls. This is what happened when the two genres met.
A Vintage Singer Paper Doll Cutter with Contemporary Paper Dolls
This was the first little machine I had which a friend snapped up before I could say "Vintage Singer Paper Doll Cutter For Sale".
Alas, I found another one!
From about the 1950's to 1960's this little plastic hand-crank can come alive for pretend play again! It reminds me of the Singer 500 Rocketeer Slant-O-Matic Sewing Machine - an amazing vintage machine that will sew about anything (still quite desirable and sought after today, actually)
