They are made by a very talented lady called Colleen who has an Etsy shop here and also a blog. I bought the round cushion a couple of months ago and couldn't resist going back for the others. I just love the wiggly one! Although new, I think they appeal to me because Colleen has very cleverly used just the right combination of colours that somehow make them look more vintage. They are now at home on my sofa, although last night I did chastise A for leaning on them and squashing them. But they're not much good if you can't do that and they did recover ok...phew!
Now, it's one thing to humiliate grown women, but doing it to children is a step too far. A sort of vision in woolly pink spaghetti, I think you'll agree? I had a hat similar to this but I do remember pom-poms being involved.
This is described in the book as a playsuit. I find it a little bit scary, but maybe that's a sign of the times we live in now. Crocheted hotpants were completely innocent on a child back in the 70's....
"It's alright, we won't make you model anymore crocheted playsuits. Just please don't call childline"
She thinks she looks great in her batwing jumper. I think it probably did come off a bat.
Ahh, do you remember the days when you used to throw on your crocheted mini dress but forget your pants?
It's so big, it's tipping her over.
"Yes, I always go mucking out in my aztec-style tank top"
Crocheted bootees...handy for walking the dog or popping to Tesco in.
And of course, what dining table is complete without crocheted candle holders...so practical.
Howsabout a crocheted swimsuit? No?
The seventies eh? Didn't you just love 'em? I may not learn to crochet from this book but it's entertained me no end. Normal service will be resumed next time around, I promise.
