Recently the lovely Christy called me to tell that she’d had a fantastic op shop haul.  In among her finds was a number of vintage softie sewing patterns from the the 70’s and 80’s, all for me!

Humpty Dumpty.

My favourite is this one.  I LOVE the cat and the stripes its made from.  For some reason the doll is a little freaky though… it reminds me of a bond girl.

The Rabbit looks a bit like Frank from Donnie Darko, a little nightmare inducing…

Meanwhile head over to Christy’s new blog… and shop, where you can see pictures of her funky designs modelled by her cute kids, and read of her sewing and crochet adventures.

  1. Wow – these are ace! (and, yes, a little scary too, in some cases!)
    I like the cats best too, and the kangaroo in the bottom one – it looks so friendly! =)
