modified Michaels decoration, I found this old pattern in the attic. It's proof that we never throw anything away since it's old and battered. And I'm the only one in my immediate family who knows how to crochet.
The copyright date (1971) makes it ten years older than I am, but I'd like to think the poncho and the skirts wouldn't have been socially acceptable ever.
Oddly there's a receipt inside with my mother's (rarely used married) name and dated 2/7/81. And a Bible verse next to a picture of Calvary at the bottom.
I'm not entirely sure how or why the long skirt is one size like the bag and poncho. Maybe if you're want people to think you turned Grandma's afghan into a skirt you're not big on "accurate fit."
