It's the last party of the year!
The last letters of the alphabet Y and Z
For Y, I choose vintage fabric Yo Yo's. these became popular back in the 1930's and 1940's. Little fabric rosettes shirred into circles. They were most often made into quilts. They were popular again in the 1970's when they were fashioned into "hippie vests". In the mid 90's, patterns were introduced and more recently plastic templates became available making them extremely easy to make.
I love to use them in my textile art too. Here are a couple examples of past work.
For the letter Z, I chose (and yes I am dating myself here)
mid 1970's rock group one of my faves back in the day
so how's that for throwing something unexpected in?
Wasn't a Zeppelin also a blimp??
