my creative space...


My laundry obsession has progressed. I've been searching for vintage embroidery transfers with laundry themes and came across this little guy (or gal) over at Floresita's vintage transfer finds blog. Can you guess what he's going to become?

More creative spaces over here.

I love that blog. I finished the kitten hanging out laundry a while ago and it's still waiting to be turned into a peg bag. Is that what you are making too? Very cute!

those old wooden pegs are so charming, esp when they are all sun bleached and edges worn...your embroidery theme is great..so perfect for a peg bag?

Yea! I do have some old patterns, but thus far haven't figured out how to transfer them to things I want to stitch on (like felt) unless I draw them out myself. Must move onto tea towels someday.

vintage embroidery transfers... great idea. like everyone else, I am assuming for a peg bag. My favorite laundry accessory! Although not transfers, there are some great vintage laundry images over at thegraphicsfairy.com

aaah, a peg bag. Such a lovely image. What a great idea. {I agree, graphics fairy is also good}

A quick glance had me thinking something a bit rude...but then I looked closer and saw the peg in it. That's pretty cute and your stitching is so neat.
