Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!
Today I’m posting a chart from an antique French embroidery design booklet. The charts are quick and easy cross stitch for what looks like snowflakes or designs that could be used as a border.
Imagine them scattered on a decorative pillow cover in red and white, blue and white or as a border on a towel or pillowcase.
Also a couple of the designs could be used with the craft of “chicken scratch” on gingham. If you’ve never heard of it, I’ve done a blog post about it titled Chicken Scratch Embroidery – What is it and how to do it.
Be sure to check out this previous blog post of the Alphabet in Cross Stitch for Monograms.
To Download Chart: Right-Click on the image and select either “save target as” or “save link as” depending on what browser you are using or click on it, it will open in a new window and there you can save or print it.
