Wall Hangings from 1966

The Better Homes and Gardens Stitchery and Crafts book, published in 1966, is so groovy that it’s hard to choose which pictures to show you. How about these wall hanging patterns.

Abstract sampler

Flower and leaf

Purple cat with fish

I enjoy the carefully composed photos of these crafts as much as the crafty items themselves.

Blue and white pictures

Leaf shapes

Kitchen bird


Long cats

These aren’t really the kind of thing I like to make. I just like looking at the pictures. But I’ve included the instructions below, in case any of you would like to try. The instructions are somewhat vague for some of the patterns, but here they are, in the order that they’re shown above.
