Vintage Embroidery Patterns

Vintage is back and better than ever. Terrifically popular embroidery patterns are the lovely classic days of the week dishtowels. These dishtowel patterns are always a fun way to perk up a kitchen while serving a purpose. Jazz up a pillowslip with a beautiful vintage inspired flower vine or create popular “his” and “hers” towels to give to your favorite newlyweds.

I found all sorts of vintage looks in redwork, bluework, and even lace that you embroider right on a dissolvable stabilizer in the thread color that matches your project best. Of course there are many modern detailed designs in every theme from babies and kids to holidays and weddings.

This is a very fast motion video showing the making of a handbag using a vintage straight stitch treadle sewing machine. All of the embroidery, quilting and construction was done on a treadle sewing machine.
