Itsy, Bitsy, Teenie, Weenie, Yellow Polka-dot Bikini...

What is it about polka dots that's made them so everlastingly popular? They've been around since at least the 1950s (I vaguely remember the above song, which Google tells me was recorded by Brian Hyland in 1960). Polka dots appear to be as popular today, if not more so. Even my blog background is dotty!

As you can see from the pics on the right, I've made items recently to reflect our love affair with the perennial polka dot. I also began a thread on the Folksy forum yesterday, titled Show me your POLKA DOTS! So why not have a peek at the wonderful items the talented makers there have to offer? You won't be disappointed. :-)


  1. Isn't it? I love it so much myself, I can hardly bear to part with it!

    Thanks for commenting, Hannah. :-) xx
