This IS Your Granny’s Crafting – Yarny Gifts Edition


I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ll say it again.  Once August rolls around I always start thinking about what holiday gifts I want to make.  I unearthed this Current Attractions – Flowers, Pillows, Gifts, and Fashions pamphlet and let me tell you friends – there are some doozies here both good and bad!


First up is this crocheted tote with handy dandy umbrella pocket on the outside!  Isn’t this especially alluring for those who live in rainy climates?  Here in Texas it would make a good gag gift.


Ok y’all.  I’m not exactly sure why, but I’m strangely attracted to this hooked rug eagle art.  Paired with the eagle bedspread it’s almost impossible to resist.  Although I could be crazy.  Am I the only one that likes this?


I DEFINITELY love this adorbs crocheted bedspread and matching pillows!  The color possibilities are endless!  If my couch wasn’t already drowning in crewel pillows I would definitely make a bunch of these for it!


And some of these, too, of course.


Although I am disturbed by this mermaid pajama bag (poor dear looks like she’s  recovering from a nasty bender)  I also kind of want to make it.  Not just for the ironic “so bad it’s good factor” but truth be told, Little Betty would adore it.


I love these crocheted Three Little Bears!  Aren’t they just the cutest??  Surely any child would be thrilled to receive them.


Ok, I can think of several people who would love to get Mr. Meow Meow as a gift, and they might even use him!  I mean, seriously.  The bow tie.  I’m sure if I actually made this he would look even more psychotic, which in this application is a good thing, I think.

Are you thinking about holiday gift making yet?  And if so, do any of these pique your interest?

    Is Mr. Meow Meow a rug? A hot pad?

    If I knew somebody who could make it, I’d love the octagon bedspread and pillows. How long would that take though? It’s got to be a lot of work.
