Groovy gifts

One of my sewing friends often gives me bags of offcut fabric (yay), and occasionally she includes little surprises, such as this wonderful relic of the past:

It's a booklet included with the November 22, 1972 issue of the Australian Women's Weekly. Inside are patterns for many groovy handmade items, such as crocheted slippers, a tea cosy, bookmarks, and my favourite, novel coat-hangers.


Interestingly, this publication uses American spellings rather than British. I wonder when it changed?
