Vintage Transfers GALORE!

I'm SO excited. I got this huge lot of embroidery transfer patterns off ebay. They are all in public domain! There are cute kitties, kittens, Pickaninny doll dish towel designs-all 7 designs are here and they are unused, Also an Angel crib quilt that is unused, other childrens, nursery, crib quilts, more dish towels, pillowcases, monograms, Topsy and Eva potholders, more kitten dish towels, puppy dish towels, Circus crib quilt, lots of floral design, one large Sunbonnet Sue with trellis design, Cherub dish towels, Apron patterns, Quilt patterns, Mexican designs and lots more. Almost 2 pounds of transfers in this lot. Most of these are older, 1940's and up, some from Workbasket magazine, the Superior are in poor condition, so are the Vogart cross-st patterns. Some are fragile. The old age has made them more brittle and crease lines do tear on these but I'm going to try to preserve these and sell them as both artwork and as digitized embroidery designs. The exciting thing is this entire lot was only $5.50. Now the shipping was almost double. LOL
