The Cookies are Escaping!

Vintage embroidery patterns are just puzzling. Yesterday, I found a pattern of a smiling apple running away from a knife. And a beet juggling pots and pans. And an orange with her arm happily wrapped around a juicer...  

It makes my terrified cookies seem normal by comparison. 


Is it just me, or do they look like they're screaming for help?


The hot iron transfer came from Mom's stash, so I don't have any idea what its origin was.

Love this embroidery stencil. Yes, it looks like they are saying 'catch me if you can'! Just like in the Gingerbread Man Cookie Poem.

I've seen some of these funky embroideries. This one is especially sweet. I'm wondering if it came about at the time when cartons were born. Thanks for sharing!
