Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

Today I’m sharing a beautiful floral quilting design cut from a newspaper that can be used for embroidery or a coloring page as well. Done by Eveline Foland, it’s not dated but most likely from the 1930’s.

This design is beautiful in quilting, either for silk cushions or as a quilting design for the plain blocks of a pieced or appliqued quilt. If it is too large for your blocks omit a leaf or blossom.  It may be repeated and quilted into a border. When used for silk cushion it is distinctive. Any quilt fan will find many ways to use the design. Just a hint is enough.

Nursery Filet Crochet Animal Pattern Baby Blanket Crib Quilt

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

Well it’s another Friday the 13th and I choose to believe it’s good luck, not bad. I did a little research and found out black cats are actually thought to be good luck in some countries. If that’s true, and I think it is, I have plenty of good luck around the house.

Black Kitties on the Porch

This is two of them on the porch. One checking out what I’m doing and his brother lounging.

 

I had a grey momma cat give birth to four boy kittens in our barn almost a year ago. All are a combination of black and white. At first, they wouldn’t let us near, but now it’s a different story. They’re still outside cats, but when it gets cold or rainy, they are more than happy to be inside. All are fixed, that was fun, catching them and taking them to the vet, but it’s important. The county shelter is full enough already.

 

 

 

 

 

That brings me to today’s freebie pattern. A filet crochet baby blanket for the crib made up of animal blocks, one of them being a cat.

This pattern came from an American Thread Company booklet called Star Bedspreads Book No. 34 published in 1944.

The name of the bedspread is Land of Nod

“Whimsical…elfin…and so simple to make, a block of filet crochet and then a block of fabric. Little tots will adore it”.

 

 

There is a duck, lion, bird, elephant, squirrel, rooster, reindeer, pig, rabbit, dog and cat, and birds.

Because it is made with blocks, you could make it as big or small as you’d like. You could use all of the animal patterns or just a few.

Buttercup Crochet Flower Pattern for Jewelry - Vintage Crafts and More

Mother’s Day is this weekend and it may be too late, but this crocheted Buttercup necklace, bracelet and earrings don’t look too hard to make. Maybe crochet a brooch with a single flower or a cluster, glue a pin to the back and you’re all set. This crocheted jewelry set pattern is from an American Thread booklet, no date, but my guess is the 1960s.

 

This is a real Buttercup, the crocheted flower looks pretty close to the real thing.
