Way Back Wednesday
I absolutely adore tinted embroidery. Pammy0226 crayon tinted this vintage pattern and added the cutest little ruffle. I can't believe this is her first time trying crayon tinting. It is a practice that dates back to the 1920's and rose in popularity until the 1940's. I have several pieces from the 1930's that still have their bright beautiful tint to them. If you are interested in trying this technique, there are several tutorials swimming around the internet. It is a super easy way to add a little more color to your embroidery.
Hi, I'm Pam - I've been a moderator for the Needlework boards on Craftster since 2004 and you can also see me in the Craftster Quickies video series.
I am a lover of all things vintage but I particularly have a fondness for vintage embroidery patterns, which I collect every chance I can get!
