Apple Blossom "Sampler"

Have I mentioned how much I love my laminator????

I'm not one of those to play with Photoshop, or things like that. So what I have done with the Apple Blossom suppercloth at this point is:

1. I have taken a number of scans of the pattern and finished embroidery.

2. I traced that embroidery onto tissue paper and embroidered my own version - in colours quite different to those of the 1940s.

3. In a simple Word document I inserted a number of those scans, including two of different sizes of the pattern.

4. I outlined those patterns with a fine felt-tip pen, so it is easier to see them through the tissue paper.

So this is what the printout looks like at this stage. I thought I would scan it, as it may be of use to others - so there is a larger version HERE.

Now I will laminate it, and I have a sturdy "sampler" of this design with traceable master.

I do like my laminator.
