On this page, spring is truly in the air: there is a ladybug (the only ladybug transfer I've ever seen) a bee, a butterfly, a dragonfly (again a first for me) and a hummingbird! On this page, there are two birds (one's definitely a cardinal, not sure about the other) but the real treasures here are the boy and girl. I'm pretty sure that these are potholder designs, which is why they are both half designs and include no legs. I love the way the girl's face is drawn in profile-my Mom could draw girls like that (probably from doodling in class-remember those dogs with big ears all our kids could draw!)
Both of these partial pages are printed on very thin paper...most of my vintage 30's embroidery transfer collection is printed on heavier stock (think construction paper) . The paper is so thin that the ink has printed through to the back and there is a shadowy look to both sheets, especially the bottom one. I don't think this is from ironing because who would iron the whole sheet as it is? Click on the pictures for a better, bigger look.
While incomplete sheets, both are 8" wide-like a sheet of paper. All of this makes me wonder if these were free premiums...anyone have any ideas? I know free premiums were given out...could these be "freebies"?
