Huswif (""house wife"") or roll-up was the name given to an oblong shaped sewing case made out of scraps of fabric that could be rolled up and put into a pocket. It typically had smaller inside pockets and tabs for needles. A scrap of fabric similar to the second pocket of this huswif was found in the Locust Lawn (The Josiah Hasbrouck House) collection. The fabric found in this huswif is block and roller printed glazed cotton. Block printing (pattern is cut into a wood block and then stamped) and roller printing (pattern is engraved onto a metal cylinder and then rolled out) were two methods for printing fabrics in the 18th and 19th centuries.
