Even Eleanor Roosevelt used a lingerie bag. Her bag is monogrammed "AER" (Anna Eleanor Roosevelt) and made of silk and satin. It’s on display at the Eleanor Roosevelt National Historical Site near Hyde Park, New York.

Last night I finished making a new lingerie bag for an upcoming trip. The cross-stitch design and project materials were ordered months ago from Pique & Pique, a shop in France. The front is linen and the back is cotton. There’s a tiny crystal “diamond” sewn in both design elements.
I’m starting another of these bags, this time using black embroidery thread. When finished, I’ll post the new version as well as share photos of the vintage lingerie bags in my small collection.
