We adore this sweetly playful embroidered collar! Charlotte from Tuppence Ha’penny: my little vintage world got a bug in her ear, and came up with this. She says, “I’m using pure silk thread. This time I’m using only a single thickness though, which makes the work more time consuming and requires more accuracy, but because of the amount of detail to the design I thought it was best.” Although she didn’t provide the transfer pattern, we found a plethora of free vintage patterns on the Vintage Embroidery Patterns group on Flickr…from giraffes, to fully opened roses, to wise owls. We’re partial to this set with its dancing pigs, gossiping mice and tip-toeing elf!
