Embroidery patterns….one for the new baby and the other for the man in your life

baby embroidery

This embroidery pattern for ‘baby’ was published in the McCall’s Iron On Transfer Book, Volume V. Wouldn’t it look sweet on the ‘overflap’ of a baby’s blanket? What a great way to show off your needlework skills along with your latest addition.

deer

Another embroidery from the McCall’s Iron On Transfer Book, Volume II….A full sized deer with a youngster. They would be perfect on a dark background in a man’s den or even dad’s chair. I can also see them on a whole cloth quilt or a Christmas table cloth.

  1. Ah, my mother loved that sweet, delicate baby embroiery stuff. Lots of lazy daisy stitches (is that what they’re called?) and French knots. I like them, too.

  2. That is what they are called and so easy to do. I still love them.

  3. thank you for the wonder vintage images. i am searching for a pattern my husband’s grandmother did. It is the same cross-stitch type image as the deer but this was pheasant flying up from a field. she did hers in color so i have to assume there were color instructions. if anyone has any idea where i can find this pattern, i would be very grateful. it is beautiful.

  4. I’ll look and see …. I think it may be in one of the vintage McCall’s magazine if it is the same one
