A lovely collection of counted designs in bold and gaudy colors, so reminiscent of the taste and fashion of the time.
These are re-charted from a French ladies magazine dated the 11th of October, 1868.
Patterns such as these would have been used to decorate household items, curtain pelmets, cushions, or to create gifts and other small items.
These designs are perfect for all manner of counted work. Cross stitch, beadwork, tapestry, spot samplers, mosaics etc….
The colors are the ones suggested in the original pattern.
