Yesterday's Charm is a company that does the same thing except with reproductions of actual 1930's-50's embroidery patterns. On the back, the patterns include the original suggested color schemes. I was throughly impressed and ended up buying two. Alas, somehow I didn't come home with the vegetable polka pattern...
I thought you all might be interested since they'd make great additions to tea towels, pillows, cardigans and I'm sure alot of other things that you'll think of.
