Last weekend it was my daughter’s birthday and I agreed she could have a party. She decided to have a 1950’s themed party. I thought I would get into the swing of things and I bought a late 50’s but probably more early 60’s style dress. I thought about 1950’s housewife’s and how I was glad I wasn’t one, but also how it might be fun to dress up like one. I bought some material to make an apron.

Here it is.

The cartoons on the material by Michael Miller are a humorous view of a  1950’s family that he calls “dysfunctional” .

Here are some close-ups.

I love the simple humour and I was inspired to make some of my own 2011 family cartoons.

These are “obsessive mosaic mum”.
