I have a big stack of 70's craft books, collected over the years for ideas for my art classes, their kitsch cuteness, and for nostalgia, as I made many things as a girl with a few of these very books. I'll never forget creating this tortoise pouffe in Yr 9 textiles. Mine was lime green!
Some I'll never use (still interested Madame Kootoyoo?) but some have been thumbed through regularly for inspiration. This guy is a recent example of my craft book browsing..... Betty Jo now loves Zoo animals!


  1. Does Betty Jo love turtles too - that would be cute.

  2. Sure to be a roaring success. Dora x

  3. Can't wait to see more of the zoo animals.

    Lions and tigers and bears, OH MY!

  4. How cute, do you make monkeys as well??

  5. Oh the lion is absolutely gorgeous Liz.


Hi! It's very nice to receive your comment. I'll go and visit you too.
