Isn't this a sweet little doggie?! I can't wait to try this pattern! He is from a pattern packet that my grandma had. I don't know how old this pattern is, but it is on one huge sheet of paper and the individual pattern pieces have not been cut. I think I will scan this and work from a copy so that I can keep the pattern sheet as is: In the same envelope, there is a pattern for a large cat - those pieces have all been cut out. I would love to make the cat too! She also had these embroidery pattern transfers - there is an Aunt Martha "pillow slips" transfer, a Walker's Old Mexico and a Walker's Initials for Monograms.
There is also this beautiful needle package - I just LOVE the graphics on this:
