1950s Swedish embroidery
Victor Pettersons Bokindustr Aktiebolag, Stockholm 1954

I picked up this sweet 1954 Swedish sewing book, Hemslöjdens Hardarbeten at Greenwich Clocktower Market this morning. I don't understand a word of it Рeven the title, which appears to translate as 'Handiwork Handicraft'.

But who cares – look at the pictures!
