Over the years I have collected a number of beautiful needlework and embroidery designs, transfers, and patterns. I just love vintage linens and embroideries and thought I would share some of the lovely patterns I have scanned and cleaned up. This beautiful rose motif would make a great tea towel trim or a pillow case edge. It would also make a beautiful cushion in Victorian or cottage colors. I scanned the motif from the original 24” x 36” pattern sheets and cleaned it up using Photoshop. You are welcome to download a copy for your personal use. Do not duplicate or sell these patterns.
This Daisy motif would be so delicate done in pretty pastel colors with lazy daisy stitches and french knots. Or it could be done in all one color like redwork or bluework.
This delicate little border is a nice complement to the daisy motif. I can see it around the edge of a table cloth, a quilt border, or the edge of a pillow case. It would also look great on a pretty tea towel.
This basket design is a classic embroidery design. But I just love the graceful swooping vines and the cross hatched basket. This would be so pretty on a towel, a cushion, or a pretty quilt block. The patterns for all of these embroideries are on my Flickr site.
If you like these designs please leave a comment and let me know so I will know whether to do more of these in my blog. If you use one of these patterns please send me a pictures so I can post it!! Thanks!
