FREE Butterfly Pattern


This pattern was originally designed to make a potholder.  It seems the perfect shape for grabbing a pot handle.  It might also make a nifty felt needle case.  Use it as an applique pattern or just embroider it as-is on a project of your choice.  To make tracing the pattern easier I matched both sides.  


Barefoot Boy

Here's what's new this month at the PatternBee Vintage Embroidery Shop! 


"Little Ole Barefoot Boy" was distributed by Modern Handcraft sometime between 1950-1960.  This active little fellow is accompanied by his pup as he gets into all sorts of boyish mischief, even getting chased by a turkey.  Which is pretty funny.  There are seven motifs which can be used to make weekday dish towels.  Or a child's quilt with embroidered 10" blocks.  The motifs are about 7" to 8" in size.
