Laura Wheeler Design 664 — Peacocks

The third transfer from the Ethel E. Hughes collection is another group of three designs for “cloths, scarfs, pillowcases, towels and pillows.” The recommended fabrics are “linen, chambray, muslin, percale, or some similar material.” Sometimes there is a color key or a stitch guide; other times the instructions merely suggest floss colors and stitches for various parts of the design. In many cases, you simply have a transfer, and nothing else.  Just as in old quilt patterns, when directions are included with vintage transfers, they are more vague than contemporary patterns, so unless the publisher was a thread manufacturer, color numbers are generally not included.  Click on images for full size, or on these links for previous peacock designs, #7107 and #777.
