Here's one I found appealing, I thought this would look lovely on a needlecase:
Here's another charming design from Exceedingly Curious, a "good morning" pillowcase.
I've tried to flip the picture so that the lettering is backwards and traceable, please let me know if I need to amend it to make it useful.

It probably comes as no surprise to you that I have a little collection of vintage linen. My mother always had doileys everywhere when I was growing up, she was very fond of the traced linen kits of the 50's. So I find it hard to pass any by when thrift shopping. My criteria is usually that it's well made and an attractive design, or that can be unpicked and re-stitched.
I found this one while thrift shopping yesterday. It has an identical deer motif at each end, and I'd say by the style and colours, was made in the 1930's. Its showing it's age somewhat, but I'm hoping with an good clean and press, it will come up beautifully. I think it's quite charming.

The text says:Embroider it in three shades of green as suggested in the picture or in three
shades of blue as planned by the designer. The effect with either
color against the shiny white cloth is delightfully cool and with edges blanket
stitched and finished with a crochet edging is all there is to it.
The complete set consists of one 18 inch centerpiece, four 12 x 17
inch napkins, and four 18 inch napkins, stamped on pure white linen finish Art Cotton.

Ask any kitteh and they'll tell you they're superior. Obviously the pattern company agreed, for they featured kitty images on teacups in this set of transfers. Unfortunately, 3 of mine are missing, but the rest are unused. Stitch your kitty on a teacup today!
The printable pics are in my Flickr photoset.

I'm a bit baffled...I got this transfer sheet in a vintage lot from e-bay and it didn' t come with a cover. Reading here makes me think it's an Aunt Martha's pattern set because of the number, but looking here has got me all confused because the fish'n'chips, ham'n'eggs etc also appear on an Vogart design 259 - Smart Slogans.
Anyone got any suggestions?
