Vintage Embroidery Patterns: In The Quiet Hours Hand Embroidery

I have a vintage hers and his pattern and a short stitch tutorial for you today!


This is my go-to present Whenever I have a wedding event shower to go to.

Make yourself 2 “hers” cases or sew 2 “Mr” cases for your preferred couple that is getting hitched. Bring it into the 21st Century y’ all!


The pattern I selected for today is best for a starting stitcher; as it utilizes the core standard stitches that I teach in a novice class (back, stem, daisy, and french knot) however permits space to get fancier.

Superior started producing embroidery transfer patterns in the mid-1930s. It appears that they offered solely in Sears department shops and possibly even “copied” styles from bigger pattern business.

The style aspects are the exact same, yet this pattern image states “Mr. and Mrs.” and not “Hers and His” like my examples and the PDF pattern that is listed below. I have yet to discover a classic image of the “Hers and His” pattern.
I am discovering that these pattern businesses typically replicated one another’s styles which one business might have reissued a style a number of times. This makes the research study end a little challenging.

I like this pattern due to the fact that it is classy and hence, looks a little fancy for a shower or wedding event present. This would be a fantastic area for the really popular woven wheel stitch!

Here is a short woven wheel sew tutorial:
1- Make 5 even-sized straight stitches that all share one point
2- Bring your needle to the front of the material near the center of the star. Start the weaving by going under and over the straight stitches. (You will not pierce the material while weaving) Make sure to keep the layers of thread laying close, however, do not pull too tight;
3- Once the woven thread covers all of the straight stitches (in the image listed below, my straight stitches are not covered. Yours will be prettier!), bring your thread to the back of the material to knot off.
