1970s Bohemian Crafting Inspiration

11 09 2010

This is my first Vintage Craft Book Review. I have a collection of vintage crafting books which range from DIY furniture, knitting, sewing, quilting and more. I never do these crafts, they are more eye-candy then anything.

Todays Book review : The Stitchery Idea Book by Beverly Rush Copyright 1974

This is actually my favorite book of all of them being that I lean towards 1970s crafts as my ideal.

I have included a few pictures of this 176 Page book which are an example of the tremendous amount of inspiration on a variety of crafts it gives. The book is an idea book not a ‘how-to’ that will inspire you in your crafting ventures.





1950s Vintage Knit Blouse Pattern

10 04 2009

 I have a strong belief that any women who is tedious and patient enough to knit or crochet or whatever deserves my vintage knitting pattern books more then I do. But I like the pictures, so I will probably never sell them. Instead I will be posting them here!

This is from a 1950 Minerva Fashions in Hand Knit book.
