Sputnik Embroidery

My good friend Mr. Jalopy (who's also a man-broiderer!) sent me this picture of a stitched linen he recently unearthed. It's a Russian teddy bear riding Sputnik! I've never seen this design before- any of you vintage pattern collectors have it?

For Feeling Stitchy readers who live in LA, you simply must visit Mr. J's cute and cool shop in Silver Lake, Coco's Variety -where you can buy my embroidered Mexicana Tea Towels, along with darling dishware, oilcloth, bike parts and inner tubes!


  1. beautiful blog and the felts hearts are so cute!

    Have a nice day!


  2. I haven't seen this design either but I'm going to ask my mom about it.
    I'd love to make that design.

  3. Hi there,
    This is such a cool design. I've never seen it before either.

    I'm not sure how to contact anyone here. I would like to ask you to add my vintage image blog to your "free patterns" link area. I have alot to offer and much more to come. You can click through to my main blog and then click on "A Vintage Collection". I also have a button you can use on your blog too.

    Do I need to join the flickr group to be apart of what you do here on this blog? Thanks so much for your time...
