These designs are from a sheet of Walker’s blue numo hot iron transfers — the ones on tissue paper with blue raised dots that are one use only. The serial number for this sheet is 1598, and it came in an assortment with 3 other sheets. Sometimes these numo transfers don’t look too great, even if they’ve never been used, because the ink gets brittle over time and the dots start to flake off. I was lucky with this group of transfers, because they have never been used and are still in their factory folds.
I’ve seen lots of vintage pot and pan transfers that are anthropomorphic or decorated, but I think these simple designs are my favorites. I’ll clean up the rest of the images on this sheet for next week’s embroidery transfer post.
