Crafts magazines

Visited my best friend yesterday and got two bags full of old crafts magazines (Sömnad och handarbete, Allt om handarbete). So far I've been browsing through the issues from 1981 and 1989 and what a walk down memory lane... I was born in 1974 so this is what I rememer wearing when I was about 7 and 15 years old.

I'm marking the sewing patterns I believe can be useful to me and so far I've found some pants, skirts and a blouse.

Anyone else who remembers this era from childhood/adolescence?

I also scored some nice 70s patterns (they look 70s at least) last night on Tradera (Swedish Ebay).

Than you so much for the magazines, Ellie!

Bye for now,



  1. Thank you Joh. I´m glad you liked them. I will tell my mom about your blog. Beautiful graduation dress you made. Can I order one?

    Thanks for today.


    1. I actually think I can be up to sewing one for you! But then we have to go fabric shopping!
