These cute Dutch girl designs, featuring a combination of cross stitch and traditional embroidery stitches, were traced from a vintage transfer pattern for kitchen towels. Known as Day-of-the Week or DOW towels, they contained a design for each day of the week—washing on Monday, ironing on Tuesday, sewing on Wednesday, shopping on Thursday, cooking on Friday, cleaning on Saturday, and a leisure activity (or church) on Sunday.

Print out your designs, then transfer them to your fabric. I like to use a wash-away or fade-away marking pen and a lightbox or bright window to do this, but you can also use a transfer pencil designed for this purpose.

Note—If you'd like a printed pattern mailed to you, please email me. Prices will include an additional printing charge (will vary depending on the number of pages) and shipping costs to mail the pattern to you. You'll receive a Paypal invoice via email; once paid, I'll print and ship your pattern.
