November 7, 2009Vintage Crafty Saturdays – Christmas Embroidery Projects From Hoop Love
So, I am just getting started on my Christmas projects for my friends. Finally. I am planning to embroider a bunch of stuff with some awesome vintage embroidery patterns I found in the Flickr Group Hoop Love. If you haven’t ever visited Hoop Love and you love to embroider, you are really missing out on something. The super-generous members of Hoop Love upload vintage embroidery patterns that have expired patents or unknown manufacturers to share with poor unfortunates like me who don’t have access to a closet of vintage patterns. *Sniff* Ah, poor me. Anyway, because of their generosity, I am going to be able to make Christmas Presents this year, which I am really excited about. I just hope the people who receive the gifts are as excited to get them as I am to make them. 🙂 Although I will never be as good as my hero, Jenny Hart, I am hoping to put a modern spin on some of the vintage patterns so they end up looking at least moderately cool.
Anyway, here are some of the great patterns from Hoop Love that I am planning on using this year.
If I use your pattern and you want me to take it down, let me know. All these patterns are not mine, and cannot be sold or used for personal gain. They are free and are supposed to be shared with one and all in crafty love. 🙂
