Free Victorian Needlework Patterns
The Antique Pattern Library has scads of PDFs of charming original vintage hand-stitching patterns. Everything looks betters when festooned with frolicking picnickers, chubby cherubs and graceful leaf borders; we adore this collection of Victorian-style designs, with netting , filet crochet, and cross-stitch instructions.
