A few weeks ago, I went digging through my shoebox stash and pulled out another sweet pattern.  I still marvel at the dates on these--this one was printed in 1946.  It seemed perfect for February.  

The motifs are small scale, with heart appliques that can be used on the larger ones.  The envelope illustration shows them worked on natural colored linen, so that the white flowers stand out nicely on the darker background, but other colors would be fun.  I guess they would be used as embellishments on clothing and such.

All of the motifs were given singly, however, when I saw the corner motif I got this idea to make a border out of it.  The entire design is approximately the size of a sheet of paper--about 8" x 10".  The center area can be filled in with words, a saying, poem, personalization, or special occasion (think wedding or birthdate), and turned into a pillow or framed as a picture/sampler.  Lots of possibilities.

The best news is, this sweet little border motif will be included with the new updated transfer pattern.
