In my hoop: Wednesday's Vintage Busy Birds

I have such a soft spot for vintage embroidery patterns. The one in my hoop right now is the 'Wednesday' of a Vogart Days of the Week Birdie Pattern which traditionally has a sew, embroider or mend theme. The fabric came from my stash and I think it's soft tones are perfect as a background for these busy birdies! I bought the pattern some time ago on Ebay, it was most probably in a lot of several patterns. Many fun vintage embroidery patterns (but not the Vogart ones) can also be found in the Hoop Love Vintage Transfers Group on Flickr, where collectors very generously share their vintage pattern finds.

P.s. It may not be vintage but do check out the Feeling Stitchy March Stitch Along Pattern. It looks like a fun pattern to stitch!


  1. Love that fabric and the embroidery! I found a perfect fabric background for the March Stitch Along, can't wait to get started on it :)

  2. I really like vintage things too and love what you've done with these little birds. It's very sweet, thanks for sharing it!

  3. Oh, that is so sweet -- love it!

  4. Thanks all! I have another cute vintage something to share later this week :)
    @jen oooh I'm curious, which fabric are you going to use for the Stitchalong?

  5. So pretty Nicole. I love the background too and I'm a sucker for vintage birds!

  6. Lovely birds, they remind me of the cinderella film from my childhood
