More free vintage embroidery patterns

I found some more embroidery transfers in my stash! They’re really old but very pretty so I scanned them to keep and share. I’ll probably pass on the originals to someone else, it seems that no matter how old transfers get and how ratty they become the thought of throwing out these old treasures still seems wrong. So here’s a couple of butterfly patterns for you. I’m still working on sharing those large patterns but scanning in 4 parts and trying to match them up…driving me nuts!! Even my favourite panorama stitching program refused to help. I may try photocopying next, so I can copy more of the pattern at once. The patterns are starting to flake and I want to preserve the awesome designs as fast as possible.

Happy stitching!
