Ok. Now you have no excuse. I am providing you with 100 (ONE HUNDRED) gifts for you to make for whomever (me) for this coming xmas.
Woman’s Day circa Nov 1969 very generously showcased not only cool pics of some of the snazziest crafty items to make just about anyone you can freaking fathom (dog vest, kid boat, gloves for him, her or ours – whoever that is), but also, in a feat of stupendous forethought and downright foodhardiness, the directions and diagrams and patterns and scaled plans for some of the most ambitious magazine level crafty xmas gifts imaginable. Wooden playtoys and chests? Check! Mammoth scarves and hair balls? Check! Glass boxes stuck together with tape? You got it! Any kind of knit, sewed, taped, or aluminum wrapped thing with a dowel stuck in it you can imagine is here! So get out your jig saws and start making me a present!!!!!!!!!
Ok – so this next page has a convenient index for all of these crazy gifts – and hopefully all the pages of directions made it in here. There were a LOT! So if anythings missing let me know.
Anyway – check out the index and find the page that the thing you want to make is on and you’re good to go!
Oh and I left all the old ads in there cause I know its just as important to you as it is to me to read about Pellon, Klutch, Zud and how our teddy bears didn’t mind our girlysmells.
Oh and in case you forget to make me something you can just get me an olde timey phone. It’s a very exciting gift!
