These cute little bears are from a vintage magazine (circa late 1800s) and would be adorable in a baby quilt. The fuzzy outline is easy to stitch and for a bit of color you could cut a fabric applique in brown, tan, blue or pink!
Adorable! These three patterns were loose in an envelope so I don’t know if there are more in the series.
This sweet baby motif could dress up some ordinary items like onesies, bibs or hats. Don’t forget that embroidery is really good at covering up stains!!
I love vintage toys! Another wonderful candidate for applique or redwork for Christmas.
I’m a sucker for baby designs. Wouldn’t this be adorable on a onesie?
This would be really cute as an applique using pink felt.
Once upon a time crib toys were made in the USA of soft materials that never contained lead. A sweet little baby would love these! These vintage patterns are from the 1940s in the shape of a clown, shooting star and spiral ball.
Just a little creepy. I probably wouldn’t embroider the saying but use a patterned fabric as an applique then it would be a cute baby bear with a blanket. Well, the eyes still might be creepy but they might look better after they are embroidered.
Such a cutie! Perfect for a baby quilt. I might get lazy and use a plaid fabric for the ears instead of doing the stitching. Ok, I’m really fond of applique!
These are originally designed for a baby quilt but would also look cute on bibs or onesies. Be sure and click on the image for the full size image.
