Retro Sewing Sunday – Father’s Day

Vintage cars – a staple image used on Fathers Day cards seen in post offices and old fashioned stationers for many years!
This vintage car has been created with a combination of appliqué and machine stitching – a great use of satin stitch.
It is from a copy of Golden Hands, first published in 1966, but my copy is from 1976. Despite being several decades old, I don’t think work this has dated at all.

Happy Fathers Day – to my Dad, husband and all you daddies out there x
