Vintage Good Morning/Good Night Designs for Redwork
The baby patterns were hand drafted using designs from a vintage Redwork coverlet. Other designs hand drafted from images in a 1910 catalog and antique pillow covers. There is a baby waking up and one of a sleeping baby; several girls sleeping and waking; Dream of Love with Doves; and several morning, night floral designs. The Mother Wake Up design was reproduced from a vintage German pillow topper.
These designs would be cute used to make a quilt for baby or as pillow squares. Printed on 8.5 x 11 sheets. There are 14 pages. These are not transfers and you will need to trace with a water-soluble pen or print them out on printer fabric. They can be tinted and embroidered or finished in Redwork
On the original baby cover the designs of the babies are approx. 16 x 16 and embroidered on cotton sheeting. Opposite each baby design was a chrysanthemum floral design measuring 18 x 18. These designs were embroidered on fabric pieces that measured 29 wide x 32. The four pieces were stitched together forming a large coverlet. It was finished with a 4-inch wide ruffle trimmed with lace.
Tracing designs, not transfers. Tracing instructions included. For embroidering without a background shadow remaining behind your work trace with a water-soluble pen directly to your fabric or use a wash away stitch stabilizer. With the wash away stabilizer you can print, copy or trace directly to the sheet, stick it to your fabric, stitch the design and then dissolve the printed stabilizer.
These designs are reproductions/copies of the vintage linen/pattern designs. Some of them have been scanned and cleaned; some were traced from the original linens, out of print transfers or public domain patterns. They are vintage designs but they are not vintage transfers! Please e-mail with any questions before bidding. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please inform me before returning it. I will work with you on any problems you may have.
My instruction sheets for tracing/transferring methods, crayon tinting, as well as, ink tinting and original color charts, if available, will be included. I prefer using a water-soluble pen to trace my embroidery designs directly to the fabric. I do not want any lines showing through my stitches, especially on the areas that I use a single strand of floss! Water removable markers, Transfer Veils and Pen, Transfer-Eze™, and Wash-Away Stitch Stabilizer are my favorite methods for transferring a design to fabric. If I am going to color the design with crayons or inks before embroidering I trace the design to the fabric using a Pigma Micron Pen Size 01.
The designs can be worked in embroidery only, or tinted with crayons/ink/fabric paints and then embroidered. If you trace the design using a Pigma Micron pen, no embroidering is needed!See my other listings
