I found the greatest coloring book from 1930 and have been using the pictures as patterns. I copy the pics at work (I'm getting handy with the reducing part) and then trace over the picture with a Sulky pen, iron it on and voila a really cool and original embroidery pattern. I'm actually becoming obsessed!

I'm so addicted! Some of the pics are really creepy while others are just goofy (what kid would want to color in a picture of a water bottle?). I looove it!
