Way Back Wednesday

Vintage embroidered pillow top

Just-a-mere found this unfinished embroidery piece that she believes was meant to be a boudoir pillow. The little details are too perfect for words. Her face is so sweet. I love the tinting of the flowers. I'm not sure what year I would place this piece-maybe 30's? What do you think?

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!

  1. Maybe it is supposed to be Marilyn Monroe. You know where her skirt flips up. Sorry I don't know what movie that was.

  2. Oh, wow! That is fantastic! I would maybe guess 30's or 40's too, but who knows. It's awesome!

  5. Fun to see my piece featured! The floss is rayon, I believe, which accounts for the great colors and also puts me in awe of the stitcher, as I am completely bested by rayon floss!
