Vintage pattern collection

I have amassed quite a collection of vintage patterns over the last few years and seriously need to catalogue them in some way. So this is very much (slow) work in progress! I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do! If you notice any that are in the wrong era, please let me know. And do pop back from time to time for updates.

To view the covers at a bigger size, just click on the individual images.

If you would like to use any of these images, I rarely refuse. Just ask and link back. Simples!

  1. They’re beautiful! I’m so jealous! Where did you get them? From websites or thrift shops? I think it’ll be important to make sure they don’t degrade as well….is the tissue in good condition?

    • Thanks Kat. Tip of the iceberg… loads more to load on, when I get some time. I get them from all over and I should really stop but I love them so much. Tissue is almost always in good condition. As are most of the envelopes but whatever those DuBarry ones are made of are the exception to the rule. They are very brittle and just disintigrate!

    • Really?! OMG! Well it would be so rude of me not to accept but are you sure? I would indeed take very good care of them and of course be ready to send them back should you change your mind!!! I have just found you on Twitter which I am v happy about so praps we could private message each other as I haven’t a clue how to contact privately on WordPress!
