While I was at my grandparent’s place, I scanned some books. Here’s the Golden Hands Book of Crafts from the 70s. I have some of the magazine of the same name, which I scanned before. You can see that here. Most of the tutorials in the book weren’t very exciting, but there were some nice 70s stock pictures.

Everything in their house is patchwork, I’m sure.
The kites they show you how to make in the book are nothing like as nice as the ones in the picture.
