Scotty Dog and Crazy-eyed Kitty

unknown puppy and cat pattern

I found these unmarked green-lined transfers in a pile of transfers I got on Ebay. My best guess on the manufacturer is Superior or some other lesser-known company... I also have a cute bunny motif, cute ducks, and lazy daisy floral motifs. Then there's the cute Scotty dog you see above and its evil arch-nemesis, Crazy-eyed Kitty! :) Just look into those scary eyes daring you to satin stitch them... go ahead, try it - kitty will look even scarier then.

Let me know if you know the manufacturer of these - I'd love to find out!

I'm making a wall-hanging using embroidery patterns I've found on the net... more than 75% of the patterns I'm using have come from your site! Thanks! The background fabric I've chosen is black with very muted gray swirls. I'm doing the emboidery on a beige fabric. Hopefully one day it will become an heirloom for my kids. Right now they just take it for granted that "mom is always making something" and don't pay much attention to what I actually create...

Also, I was at Colonial Patterns website last week (they do the Aunt Martha's) and noticed they have a teacup and tea plate pattern similar to what you posted below.

Cool! Be sure to let me know when you're finished - I'd love to see your work! :)

The teacup and plate are definitely a Workbasket transfer, but it is funny how a lot of motifs from that period look pretty similar...

I just found your blog. What a great idea to catalog all these vintage transfers. I love looking at them. I especially love the scotties & kitties.

I saw the same pattern over at doe-c-doe's blogspot and stitched the kitty, but made some additions so she was less crazy-eyed :)
