When I was a child, my mother got a sewing magazine every month. It was called "Alt om Håndarbejde".
I remember her excitement whenever the mailman brought it to our door. And she always "saved" it for a special time of day - usually at night when she was done making the domestic duties.
I found it rather funny to read "Alt om Håndarbejde" too. In the magazines there were special pages for children. Crafty things which were pretty but easy to make.
When I moved into my own flat at the age of 19, I subscribed to the magazine. I carried on the tradition about getting new and exciting ideas from a crafty sewingmagazine. Maybe you could say, that "Alt om Håndarbejde" was the flickr and ravelry of that time..... ( And a sentence like that, makes me feel like I was born in the Early Stone Age!!!!)
Now it looks like this.
Luckily I have a lot of my old magazines left and I have this old book (1981) which a friend of mine gave to me. The book has a collection of children's patterns from "Alt om Håndarbejde" and it is quite funny to look in it. Both for knitting and sewing people...
I might just sew some of the clothes....
