Gingham Flowers Cross Stitch Embroidery Series

Gingham Flowers Cross Stitch Embroidery Series

Here is the latest freebie set of vintage cross stitch and embroidery patterns to be shared on Tipnut, I’ve chosen a really nice series that is perfect for Spring & Summer projects: Gingham Flowers (1950s).

This is a mail order set from Laura Wheeler, Pattern Number 822, and they’re perfect for tea towels and are from the same design series as the Gingham Fruit [1], both are favorites of mine! I tested the print copy sizes to make sure they are exactly the same size as the original.

Now the details (from the original copy)…
