Vintage Hand Embroidery and Appliqué Patterns
Most of the vintage embroidery patterns on this page are circa 1920, 1930 or 1940's each was designed for hand embroidery. Many of the patterns are DOW- Days of the Week embroidery patterns which feature a character doing a chore.
They were originally designed for women to hand embroidery designs onto kitchen towels, tea towel, aprons, pillowcases, napkins, quilts, appliance covers and children's and adult clothing. Hand embroidery patterns are authentic vintage reproductions from the original patterns.
How to transfer the pattern from the paper to your fabric.
There are several options to transfer the embroidery pattern:
Light Box- Place the pattern facing up (or back side) depending on which direction you want your pattern facing. Then trace directly onto your fabric.
Iron on pencil or pen - trace the pattern and then iron on the motif. My favorite transfer pen is made by Sulky you trace the paper pattern with the pen and then just iron it onto the fabric. Very Quick and easy! Clover also makes a good transfer pen.
Embroidery Transfer Tip: make sure which ever you choose the words will be facing the correct direction when stitched.
|SHIPPING- Please note that shipping will be approx 10-14 days. We live in a small town and do not have a copy store. I only make copies once a week.
