Happy Monday Everyone!
And Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in Canada!
This week for Vintage Embroidery Monday, we’re continuing on with the series of children in their Halloween costumes. This sweet little girl is dressed up as a bride complete with veil and bouquet.
And while I’m sharing this as part of the Halloween series, this pattern could easily be used for so many other occasions. Most notable of course would be to stitch it for your favorite bride-to-be.
Napkins and small bags for party favors for the bridal shower are the first things that come to mind. But she could also be stitched onto tea towels or a pillowcase. Or perhaps a journal cover for her to record her thoughts and wishes in the days leading up to the wedding.
The pattern would also make a very sweet first communion gift stitched with the young girl’s name and the date.

WELCOME TO STITCHERY LINK PARTY #131
For those who are newly subscribed or are visiting for the first time, every Monday I host a link party in which I invite others to share their hand embroidery projects.
If you’ve never linked up to a link party before and would like to join in, I’ve written a quick tutorial on How to Link Up to a Link Party. It provides step-by-step instructions for linking to this party (or any other link party you might like to participate in.)
The rules for the Stitchery Link Party are simple:
- The project can be anything as long as it includes hand embroidery stitches in some form. Such projects might be but are not limited to redwork, blackwork, goldwork, bluework, (etc), counted cross-stitch, crazy quilting, crewel, silk ribbon, pulled thread, hardanger and sashiko.
These projects do not have to be vintage or vintage inspired. All styles are welcome as long as it’s hand embroidered.
- Link directly to your blog post, not to your blog home page.
- If you happen to sell your embroidery or embroidery patterns, feel free to link up to a blog post you’ve written about a project you’re selling, but No direct links to shops or websites selling things.
- This will be a curated link party. In other words, if a link does not conform to the three simple rules above, it will be removed.
The next three are more requests than rules. They are by no means a requirement to take part in the party:
- Please link back to the Stitchery Link Party with a text link somewhere in your post.
- As well, please share the love and visit one or two (or more) of the other links and take time to leave a comment.
- It would be wonderful if you decided to follow me but it’s not necessary in order to take part in the link party.
