Primarily my color, born in the early 1970s red was in then too. Here are some of the patterns that were popular the year I was born from McCalls Pattern Company.
Red being the longest wave length, red is a very powerful color. Some things I’ve heard during my red obsession are that it signifies warmth, friendly, strength, masculinity, can make your heart beat faster, looks as if it is closer to you when represented with other colors and can be perceived as pushy and aggressive.
I believe my color attraction to red stared as a far back as I can remember. Playing board games as a child I had to be red if it were possible. These are a few of the photos I found of me in red as a child.
Here are just a few of the dresses I’ve made in red. There is always one sewn a year if not two, tree or four.
All my accessories are red, It helps me know that they are mine right away!
Red pants and red shorts are also welcome in my book!
Me in red, my red curtains and red in Sew Dayton’s fall window display.
A few other things I have made in red!
If it doesn’t have red, why not border it with red. Here is me in my butterfly dress. Jesy my business partner at Sew Dayton too these photos.
I was told in China a red ribbon is good luck so I have them on all kinds of things around my house.
I even replicated a red dress after another red dress I made.
I am a true believer Frida Kahlo loved red as much as I do.
I have even wanted to buy things that I would never use and I think it was simply the red packaging!
Last year for Christmas I made my husband a t shirt quilt modeled after something I love and yes it had red in it.
