Welcome back for Vintage Thingys Thursday!!
Today I have a few items to share from my embroidery stash.
As I have mentioned before, I come from a long line of pack rats. I'm so very glad that my Great Aunt Pearl was a pack-rat.
Here are some of her patterns. Most of her patterns in my collection appear to be from the 40's and are all mail order.
Some have never even been opened!
She had oodles of booklets too. Dusty but pristine!
Here's one I did last night when I should have been sleeping ;)
Often a bonus sheet of embroidery would be sent with her order. Here's one with a piece of felt "in your favorite color." The sheet includes directions to make an embroidered lapel pin.
And here's a cutie that Aunt P had started by transferring the pattern onto the felt. I used the thread that was wrapped in the folded paper and Voila! I have a cute new pin to wear.
For more wonderful Vintage thingys head over to our sweet hostess, Suzanne's blog, ColoradoLady.
