Free 1920's redwork or line art embroidery patterns Part 2

Part 2 :  Drawing the patterns

One of the easiest ways to achieve success with these vintage pictures is to use the picture itself as a basis for your line art.  So, as you saw in part one, you first take a picture of the desired design, using the macro setting on your camera.  This allows you to use even the tiniest of catalog pictures.  And even if they are on quite dark newsprint, you can play a few tricks.  

In this first pic, you can see how I chose to outline  with a very dark ink pen, the very most basic lines, and then, since these were printed on very dark newsprint, I also needed to lighten the pics up.  This is the same pic, lightened.
And here, you can see the final result.  Unfortunately, I kind of messed up a bit on the final line drawing, & I will redo it later, but for the sake of this post, it stays as is. ;-D

And here are the rest of the patterns for these hats.  If you copy them or use them, please link back to me, & please, I am not charging you to get them, don't you be selling the patterns to others. ;-D
