It's the most wonderful day of the week again..Vintage Things Thursday over at ColoradoLady's place. This is such a fun day,and we get to see so many sweet things..I always enjoy it so much. Thank you Suzanne for hosting us all. If you would like to participate,just scoot over to
ColoradoLady and join in the fun. See you there.......
If I were guessing,I would think perhaps the Superior transfer #183 is perhaps the older of little patterns shown, with the Sunbonnet young lady pillowcase transfer being next in line with age. That pattern is an American Weekly Transfer Pattern..#3084....and I think it's just gorgeous.The fabric for her skirt is embroidered with the flowers,then make the ruffles,and add to the pillowcase. I had always wondered how they did that..I know my mother and grandmother had made some,but I couldn't remember how. This little pattern pretty much goes step by step.
The other two little patterns I just threw in because I thought they were cute.
This group and the rest of the zip loc gallon bag patterns, well these I bought. I just couldn't leave them there,I had to have them...so I began the bidding on ebay..
and I won the bid with almost nothing. No one else bid at all...I am quite happy to have all these sweet patterns..there are lots and lots of them. When I'm 110 years old,I will still be embroidering,I hope. Who knows..I may get back to fabric painting. I've done some of that with the paint in a tube..I can't remember what those paints were called. And we used to somehow be able to color in sections with crayons..and I don't remember how we did that either..hmmmmm. Maybe it's time I get back to the basics..the back in the day crafts. I may just try..
I hope you liked the patterns..and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend..
