Vintage Embroidery Transfers — Small Baskets

These designs are from a 1923 Standard Designer Needlework Catalog, and the originals in the book are tiny — about an inch high. Fortunately, the printing is pretty good, so I scanned them at very high resolution and was then able to clean them up. The catalog has lots more patterns, including some really cute nursery designs, so I’ll scan some more next week. Click on the images to enlarge.

Vintage Embroidery Designs — Baskets

I hope you’re not too bored with these patterns. I’ve become a little obsessed with all the beautiful designs I’ve found in vintage newspapers. The images below are basket motifs from 1910 – 1915 (okay…one is more like a ribbon, but still . . . pretty cute). I love the last one — it’s buttercups.
