Have you ever wanted to create your own embroidery and crewel designs but given up the idea just because you can't draw? Here is a book containing over 500 patterns and designs from the finest Victorian source. Just transfer the designs to cloth, select a color scheme, use your favorite stitches, and soon your very own personal "noodle painting" will begin to form. These designs are classified according to type so that they are easier for you to use. You will find large motifs for big areas and dainty motifs for smaller projects; borders (narrow, medium, and wide) for pillows, sheets, and anything wanting a decorative edge; centers and corners for tablecloths and upholstery; insects, birds, and flowers for adding color to shirts and jeans; and even scenes perfect for sewing and framing. A wide variety of flowers, sprays, and greenery is included in this book, usually in various combinations: daisies, tulips, peonies, dahlias, cornflowers, lilies, rosebuds, poppies, violets, and forget-me-nots, plus shamrocks, heather, and flowers with ribbons, in baskets, etc. There are also butterflies, bluebirds, bumblebees, owls, dragonflies, and insects of all sorts. For those whose tastes are more unconventional or avant-garde, there are geometric designs, dramatic sunbursts, and unusual beasts. Complete instructions explain how to transfer these designs to cloth, and imaginative crafters will find this book suitable to a variety of other media, including metalwork, woodwork leather craft, and more.

Though it was common for women of the 18th and 19th centuries to keep personal albums of their own needlework designs, few of these hand-drawn pattern books survive intact. This rare volume, signed and dated 1815 by Elizabeth M. Townshend, appears to be just such a collection -- an authentic treasury of embroidery designs dating from the early days of the Republic. Brimming with nearly 200 timeless, functional designs, this priceless sourcebook ranges from highly stylized repeat patterns, to more realistic floral bouquets, to traditional patterns for cutwork edgings, to large-scale motifs suitable for crewel embroidery. You'll find miniature baskets (a popular motif of the day) and dainty leaf patterns, planned perhaps for a petticoat or waistcoat. Other lovely designs are ideal for embellishing the collar or cuffs of a favorite dress, adding an elegant touch to linens, curtains, undergarments, tablecloths, etc. While most of the patterns are small in scale and probably intended for use with silk threads, several are particularly effective worked in wool. The stitches Elizabeth Townshend would have used are the same stitches we use today -- seed stitch, outline, and stem stitches, chain stitch, loop stitch, and herringbone stitch -- making these appealing designs as accessible to modern embroidery enthusiasts as they were to the nation's first needle artists. Early American Embroidery Designs is not only a treasury of needlework inspiration; it's an authentic slice of Americana. Use it to create your own "heirlooms" and add antique charm to a myriad of wardrobes and household and gift items.
