If those words bring up images of refrigerators and ranges then you must have lived during the 1970’s. I was stitching on a little pouch today and realized I had chosen the very same colors that during the 80’s, I (along with the rest of the American population) was anxious to eradicate from my life.
And here it is popular again. Along with polyester and double knits. (Have you been shopping lately????)
Let’s just hope those colored appliances stay in our distance past.
This pouch is made from cheap craft felt. I can’t find wool felt locally and probably couldn’t afford it even if I could. But I found the more I handled the polyester felt, the more pliable and softer it became. I stitched it over a piece of thin cotton batting to give it some heft.
Back in the 70’s, we had red shag carpet that came with its own rake. Covered up those ugly hardwood floors…..
