Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!
For today’s freebie, I found a Star Sachet crochet pattern that could just as easily be a pretty ornament. It’s from a 1944 Spool Cotton Co. booklet titled Crochet Your Gifts.
You crochet the two sides, embroider the design on, then sew the edges together leaving an opening to stuff with batting or potpourri and add a ribbon hanger.
These are done with thread rather than yarn. Clark’s “Brilliant” is considered a fine thread, along the lines of Size 10 bedspread cotton. You’ll need embroidery floss in a contrasting color for the embroidered decoration and the crochet hook used is Size No. 8.
If you’d rather make this a stuffed ornament, this Aunt Lydia’s Metallic Gold crochet thread would be fun. Also white with gold embroidery or red with green embroidery, etc. It’s up to you.
For more crocheted ornament ideas from vintage booklets see this blog post Vintage Crochet Shade or Lamp Pulls as Christmas Tree Ornaments.
Or this post for a Snowflake Star Ornament.
