Embroidery and Crochet - a Pillow Cover from 1949


From Modern Knitting & Needlework, Spring 1949, an embroidery pattern and a crocheted edging to trim a purchased baby carriage pillow. A larger image can be downloaded from my Flickr account.

I remember those days of doing it all by hand.. now most everyone has an embroidery machine which does a good job but doesn't have the charm of hand work.

Really like it. I am taking the pattern.
