Item details

This 1929 pattern contains complete instructions and 12 templates: rabbit, duck, dog head, cat head, sitting cat, adult standing bear and youth standing bear -- or maybe they're pigs, not sure -- a standing cat wearing boots and a stick of some sort, a sitting dog, and an adult woman and little girl.

The envelope is tattered, but still intact enough to hold the pieces. The instruction cards and the templates are in good condition, consider their age. There are a few creases here and there on both the instructions and templates; there are some drawing marks on the templates as well. One of the instruction cards looks like little bit was torn off the corner at some point.

The main instruction card shows how to do simple embroidery stitches (overcasting, outline stitch, blanket stitch, herringbone, cross stitch, chain stitch and decorative running stitch. The second card shows examples of how to use stitches on four projects.

The back of the envelope has directions (enlarge photo four for more detail).

The pattern designer was an educator, and there are suggestions on how these "cardboard blocks" would have been used in that era -- to draw a border on the blackboard, as a border of animals on "bogus paper", as wood cutouts with enamel paint... and if "show-card colors are used, a thin coat of white shellac must be painstakingly applied over the entire colored surface."

This set has survived more than 85 years! What an interesting glimpse into the late 1920s. Please feel free to request additional photos or as questions.

I don't intentionally overestimate postage, but for this item I have, just to be on the safe side; but I'll refund any unused postage costs. It will via USPS with insurance included.
