For the crochet lovers out there we have this filet crochet pattern featuring bluebirds. This is another treasure from the vintage 1920 pattern book that I've been pouring over for the past few days.
This neat little pattern makes a lovely apron, as you can see... and who doesn't need a new apron? The pattern featured here is for the crochet edging and the beading at the top and very general instructions for the apron construction.
Just like the patterns in my last post, this design could be used for filet crochet or cross stitch. The instructions suggest using this design for a crocheted dresser scarf but I could see using it for any number of things.... crochet one bird and use it as a pocket on an up-cycled sweater, or trim hand towels for the guest bathroom.
Or imagine this lovely design at the hem of a beautiful, handmade heirloom Christening gown, or at the yoke of a First Communion dress; they actually look like doves to me.
Whatever you choose to make with this design will be lovely, I'm sure!
