Holiday Crafts 1964 vs 2016

I've been perusing holiday craft sites and patterns.There are LOTS of knit and crochet patterns on the innernets for your upcoming holiday bazaar! Not much has changed since 1964. Ladies are still making the same crafts today!
Patterns for those adorable poodle covers!

Clown dolls might be a popular gift item! Considering that clowns are now considered to be scary, I'd be careful who to give this gift to!

I'm giving one knitted Christmas gift--the Slip Stitch Dish Towels. I'm also finishing up my red scarf project contribution, which I read about here.

Love the poodle covers. My mom had one for a lipstick when I was little.
