I’m finishing off the week with retro soft furnishings. This great crochet cushion was so popular in the 60s. My Aunty Pat had a sofa full of them!
“Stitchcraft” magazine from March 1972 is such good value for 40cents!
This ‘Chunky Traveller’ is a great looking bag idea… and it is VERY chunky!
I started making this bag using double 8ply… It was looking very good too… but alas… I unpicked it and used the wool in another project…if you persevere…let me know.
See you tomorrow!…Day 5!
Here’s a great one from 1972!
The ‘Coles Knitting Magazine – Volume 1’ with knitting and crochet patterns for the whole family! Espousing the quality of its own brand ‘Embassy’.
Would you believe there is a crochet cardigan pattern in here for the guys!
My favourite would have to be the ‘Newsboy’ cap … in bright yellow of course! The colour of the 70s was brash and bold. Love it!
See you tomorrow!
I did a bit of a search and it seems many crocheters have tried their hand at reproducing the designer bobble bag. In my cleanup I found my felted attempt… Still unlined and without a fastener. I think the handles are more important than the bag… I might disassemble these handles and resurrect this bag and try to make it more user friendly.
