Free Printable Needlework Catalog cover and Valentine Pillow Case Ideas

Since Valentines is just around the corner I thought you might like the pillow case ideas for miniature pillow cases or other designs. You could use them as a tiny pattern in a sewing basket. I thought the catalog cover would look nice in a sewing basket as a catalog too. I always loved making tiny books and magazines from ads. This ad was from a 1927 February needlework magazine. The little girls could be used on the front of a miniature pattern. I just found this link to a great blog with more photos you might enjoy looking at from a different 1927 catalog, sure gives you a great idea of what was fashionable at that time.http://apronhistory.blogspot.ca/2012/03/herrschners-1927-8-catalog.html

  2. Hi Jean! I must tell you, that when I was about 16/17 years old, I embroidered my first and only pair of pillowcases with a very similar pattern to the one you are showing. It took me months to finish them and they were pretty awful but I was proud of them, and I used them on my RL bunk bed. And although I know that embroidery is not my forte', I still have very fond memories of having tackled it, so THANK YOU for this tiny trip down embroidery lane. :D

  4. Hi Elizabeth,
    Thank you so much for sharing that with me! How wonderful, you must have felt very pleased using them. Everything you do is so beautiful, I bet they were so lovely. I remember doing a lot of stitchery and needlepoint when I was young but so much of it was never finished. That is so great you finished yours!! Memories are the best. Hugs, Jean
