Historical information
Home made wagga purchased from the Old Bank Auctions, Geelong on 2-12-00 for $20.00. This wagga has been made of regular sized, machine sewn patches of mens suiting fabrics. The fabrics would almost certainly have been sourced from a sample book of fabrics for mens suits, owing to their regular size and the fact that many have the same pattern but vary in colour.
