Superior Design #167 .... Kitchen Motifs to Embroidery, And a GiveAway

Tuesday Tag-Along
This is a vintage 40's transfer design, using regular embroidery and cross stitch for the fill in or the shading. I've tried to enlarge the back of the package so the instructions might be seen more clearly. I've had this little set of patterns for quite awhile now..in fact, I don't seem to be able to remember for sure where I got them from....no matter though. I just don't seem to be able to let old,vintage patterns fall by the wayside. I love vintage..really vintage anything, but linens, pillowcases,tablecloths and aprons with beautiful embroidery and trims are my weakness. And when it comes to vintage patterns,there are so few out there and I just can't seem to let them die for lack of people being able to see and enjoy them.
I'm not sure how many of this little series, I believe there is 10 transfers.. and they just belong on anything kitcheny. Is that even a word? Just think..on tea towels,linens to line those gorgeous old cabinets, aprons..pot holders..curtains..
whatever you can thing of,these would be cute.
I will post one of the little patterns..each Monday and Friday..till the little series is done. I so hope you enjoy them..
Just click on the pictures to enlarge ...and run off a copy. Using tracing paper and your trusty transfer pencil, trace little pattern off. Lay the red transfer pencil side,face down on your project and iron on. Then just embroidery and enjoy...
Be sure and leave a comment for an entry to the giveaway..become a follower for an added entry..

  1. I have several pieces of embroidery. Some I did and some from others. I love it and use it. My eyes do not allow me to do it now. Guess I will have to leave the patterns for others.

  3. Really CUTE, CC!!! I'm going to have to order some floss online, I think. I just can't see making a trip for FLOSS, so I might as well... Shipping & Handling??... or spend it in gasoline?? Is there that much of a difference anymore?! Do you know of a good place to order it from?? ~tina

  11. I got to looking thru your blog and this post reminded me of my Grandmother, she used to do all kinds of crafts, mainly crocheting, sewing but I remember her having patterns like yours and making tea towels(as she called them). I'm not sure everyone appreciated them back then because everyone made these crafts. But I know this, she installed in me the love of crafting and being artistic and every thing she had in her kitchen, I have tried to find in my collecting. Miss my Grandma, VTT reminds me every week of the good memories. Thanks for visiting my blog again and your kind comments. Margaret
