Vacation Project



Here's another project that I finished for a friend's kid. It's a puppy purse. The pattern was miniaturized from a puppy pillow pattern that I purchased during my middle school home economics days. There were all these different pillow patterns: roller skate, hamburger, surfboard, lightbulb, chicken, etc. They all involved handstitching, felt, and cotton. Did anyone else have them?

I'm de-lurking (which I only to once like every 10,000 years) because I totally remember those kits. I LOVED them. Are they even around anymore?

Very cute purse, by the way. Your friend's kid is super lucky!

Yes, I totally remember those patterns, I made the roller skate, surfboard, and hamburger! I was really into those! I can't believe you still have the puppy pattern. Stored at your mom's warehouse, maybe? I had a flashback of making shirred eggs and our teacher drinking plain hot water nonstop when I read your entry. Yuck! We did learn to sew, though. If you want another great nostalgia trip, you should look for the book Barbie Fashion 1975-1979, a complete catalog of all the clothes we had and more. It's a hippie-disco poly-cotton wonderland! Thanks for the memories....

I had that exact pattern in jr. high/middle school. We made pillows out of them in home economics. Mine was made of blue gingham and I had it and the pattern for years. Wish I still had the pattern because my 3 year old son would love to have a pillow like this for his daycare nap time.

Oh my goodness! I made the lion pillow and my sister made the mouse. Are those patterns available somewhere? I'd live to get my hands on them. Any info can be sent to ti9305@hotmail.com. Thanks!
