Finished design size to suit a 10″ x 13″ frame.
Vintage sewing tools and fully wound thread cards rest on a partially stitched doily, waiting for the embroiderer to return. This One Day In May project is reminiscent of embroidery design and tools of a bygone era.
This pattern includes a MULTIPLE-USE TRANSFER so you won’t have to spend any of your stitching time tracing. You’ll
also find a full sized pattern sheet and comprehensive illustrated and photographic instructions.
Back-stitch, French Knots, Detached Chain-stitch, a little Satin-stitch and tiny cross stitches are used to create this vintage style thread (Cottage Garden Threads). Alternatively, create a unique colourway with threads from your own collection. Add a touch of sewing nostalgia to your creative space
