a stroll down memory lane
If you were alive in the 80′s then at least one of the following crafts were hanging somewhere in your house- (perhaps currently still on display in your mom’s house?) Go ahead, take a walk back a few years, I’m not sure we’ve hit the vintage category yet with these patterns- maybe 10 more years? Although, I’m pretty sure I saw a duck on something at Urban Outfitters last week…
Dream Spinners: Cotton Candy, circa 1983. I had something similar on my bed that year AND I got to paint a rainbow on my bedroom wall.
If you wore one of these vests back in the day… I’m sorry. Keep it on the giant stuff animals please. Wait… these might be also at Urban Outfitters this season- wear with high-waisted cutoff jean shorts.
Things Are Looking Up, cross stitch from 1986, probably my favorite. Customize this treasure with appropriately colored furry thread (please tell me they make furry embroidery floss..) to resemble your own kitty.
If you’re feeling jealous and covetous of any of these craft patterns or actual 1980′s vintage craft artifacts, head to your local yard/garage sale this weekend and pick some up for yourself. Have a mouse-tastic day!
