Hereby presenting an excerpt from the magazine Peterson’s Ladies National (March, 1883). It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page of a needlework pattern.
“The conventional pomegranate pattern, which would should be enlarged in the same way as the chestnut pattern, is also a broad curtain-border, but more conventional in design. It would be most effectively worked on the curtain itself, and dark-blue or green diagonal cloth or serge would be most suitable; it does not give so much scope for diversity of taste in style as the other. It is intended to be solidly worked in simple crewel-stitch, with different shades of green and red-brown, the stems and veins of the leaves being from brown to red, and the flowers and insides of the pomegranates showing the seeds would be of a brighter red.”
