More Inspiration: Vintage Embroidery Transfer Patterns

Recently, I've started collecting these wonderful vintage embroidery transfer patterns.  I haven't actually tried to transfer them onto anything, but I love looking at them for ideas and inspiration.  A few days ago I went through my stack of patterns looking for anything Christmas.  Here are a few pics of what I found.

I hope this gives you some more ideas for your stitchalong (if you need ideas, that is!).  As always, if you want to join in on the fun, just leave a comment here and I'll add you to the blogroll.

One last thing for this Monday morning: I'm having a lace giveaway on my other blog: Dishy Vintage.  Go check it out and leave a comment if you'd like to enter!

Happy Stitching!


  1. I was recently going through some things I got from my grandmother twenty-years ago and found a bunch of these patterns. Some of them are exactly the same as yours! I don't know how old they are. Do you know anything about them?

    1. Hi Renee,
      I'm not exactly sure, but I think most of these transfers are from the 50's and the 60's -- maybe as early as the 40's. They are definitely old, so hold on to them! Enjoy!
      Thanks for visiting my blog!
