Portfolio of Designs for Embroidery

The Antique Pattern Library strikes again: This is a free 1929 pamphlet by Joan Drew, which consists of a 1 page introduction and 16 pages of nothing but design outlines. The contents are mostly flowering plants and birds, in a variety of design sizes and design types (small flower sprays, full vases, birds sitting on a twig, birds in a tree, borders, corners, etc). Here is the link directly to the pdf for Portfolio of Designs for Embroidery.
