Last year I mentioned that I have a dream to start up a vintage craft library. It’s quite the lofty dream but I have to say that over the past few months I have been collecting little vintage gems from op-shops. Patterns and books for knitting, crochet, sewing and anything else that catches my eye are snapped up at bargain prices and added to the little bower bird nest that I’ve started.
To keep me on this path I’ve decided that 2010 is the year of Vintage Tuesday. Every Tuesday I’ll be posting up gorgeous, hilarious and nostalgic patterns for you to ooogle. Play along if you like, send me your vintage treats and I’ll feature them or just sit back and have a giggle.
So to start here’s a book from the 70s called “Things to make for Children” which features a tee-pee (classic)…
… a very cool bunny beanbag (I may just make this one)…
… and the most ridiculous rain cover for a pram I have ever seen. Check out the look on that poor bubbas face! Hilarious. Crafting gone wrong.
