Embroidering Sweet Kitty Designs



Mom's Old Embroidery Basket
Now that cooler weather has arrived, and our traveling has stopped for awhile, I'm in the mood to start a little hand stitching.  I used to knit and crochet, but now that I have asthma, the fibers bother me, so I've dug out my embroidery basket....actually, Mom's embroidery basket.






 
I've been looking at old kitten embroidery designs like the one on my old bib.

Here is a picture of an old transfer pattern.  With my trusty transfer pencil and a Xerox machine, I'm hoping to replicate a few of these designs onto a set of bibs for our little grandbaby, Wrenn.  I think they're just adorable, don't you.







Sew, until next time......

  3. Vintage embroideries are my favorite!!! Those are really cute - I used to crochet a LOT but it bothers my wrists now, embroidery is about all I can do in the way of handwork now.
