As promised, here are some terrific vintage cross stitch patterns free for your use -- enjoy! These patterns came from my vintage pattern book collection dated to the 1910s and 1920s. The beauty of these patterns is that they are, for the most part small, so they can be stitched relatively quickly. And there is no color chart for embroidery floss, so you can adjust the colors to your personal preference easily to match your decor.
These little cuties would look so pretty on a baby's dress or on a handkerchief corner:
Something for the animal lovers... love the crouching cat in the upper left corner:
The couple at the top of this chart have a sweet, old fashioned look to them that would be perfect on a sampler:
Simple patterns for corner work:
This is just beautiful, a pretty bouquet for a larger project. And the charts at the top would make a nice edging to tea towels or finger tip towels for the guest bathroom:
Swags and kewpie dolls awesomeness!:
More simple and easy projects, easy enough for beginning sewers or more experienced stitchers who have gift giving on the horizon:
You might want to blow these up for easier reading. I have a few more vintage patterns to post in the next day or two for either cross stitch or filet crochet. Just love these old time favorites -- happy stitching!
