I have been decluttering lately when i dug into an old dusty box and found these! OMG! i remember how crazy we were about these when we were kids -and teenagers!- i remember going to from one Co-Op to another, looking at the little orange boxes sold in the kolaf store and trying to choose a 7yaka as we used to call it, then we would spend hour upon hour with the little threads and the little hook thing pulling the thread into a knot on the mesh! My mom made my first ever swan 7yaka into a pillow for me and the 2nd one i ever finished -bilzoor- was heart shaped therefore it took literally forever to find a heart shaped pillow that would fit. Still waiting!
Do you remember these “7yaka”? have you ever made pillows out of them?
