This is a REPRODUCTION of a 1930s Vintage Embroidery pattern to make Little Gnomes or Elves Days of the Week designs. These are done in a combination of embroidery and applique. Monday - he is hanging the wash on a mushroom. Tuesday - he is ironing. Wednesday - he is mending on a mushroom. Thursday - he has flowers and is ringing the doorbell of his sweetheart. Friday - he is standing on a mushroom and dusting away a spider web. Saturday - he is baking. Sunday his is ringing lilies while standing on a mushroom. Also included is an image of him riding on a snail. These pictures are really cute and this is a very rarely seen pattern. I include a COLOR printout copy of the front cover and black and white copies of the complete pattern with an ENLARGED copy of the back cover/instructions for easier reading. Please email me with any questions that you have.

Current Shipping Special: US SHIPPING is FREE!!! It helps me if you pay for all of your purchases at one time (Paypal charges a per transaction fee, so it saves me money if you can pay for them all at once.) Remember, you can purchase any number of patterns and US shipping is FREE regardless of my cost!!!
I SHIP WORLDWIDE!!!
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING (including Canada) is the actual cost. Shipping is calcuated by weight and each pattern weights something different. Most orders will fit into a Flat Rate envelope, so that is typically the maximum you will pay. As of January 2013 a Flat Rate envelope is $23.95 to most locations. In the case of very large orders or several doll clothing patterns, it could be more. If you are concerned about shipping and would like an exact quote for multiple items, then please email me a list of the patterns you are interested in purchasing.
I do combine International orders to save you on the shipping costs. In order to receive your shipping discount, you can send me a payment request through eBay when you are done shopping, or just wait. I send combined invoices through eBay on a daily basis with the discounted shipping.
All shipments are automatically insured!!! I guarantee your package will arrive or I will reship it at my cost. Remember international shipments (including Canada) take longer to arrive. Occasionally this can even be 6-8 weeks.
I always try to ship as soon as possible. My handling time is 1 business day (business days are Monday through Friday except for holidays when the post office is closed.) I live on the west coast and do my eBay work first thing in the morning - if your payment is in by 8am, then your order will ship that day.
I guarantee the quality of my copies for as long as I am selling on eBay - not just a few days or a week, but for as long as I am here!!! So, you can buy with confidence.
I absolutely guarantee that my copies are the BEST QUALITY you will find on eBay. My copies are clear and readable. If you ever find a piece of a pattern that isn't clear, I will remake it for you (at my expense, of course.)
I offer a LIFETIME guarantee on the pattern copies that I make and sell. I will ALWAYS correct any errors that I make. No sale is ever final and I will do everything reasonable to make sure that you are a satisfied customer. eBay has always been really good to me and I am really good to my customers in turn.
