Seven kitten days of the week designs featuring a disturbingly glassy-eyed cat... :) What I find funniest about this envelope is just how unappealing it makes the designs look! :) I especially like the cute lettering on these.
My envelope is sadly empty, but the manufacturers were nice enough to include a reduced sized image of all the transfers on the back - which is how I produced the freebie for this one. The actual outlines are cuter than the illustrations on the front of the envelope. Here's the Sunday design:
7 days of the week Dutch girl motifs - this is a blue-line transfer I got in a batch of other patterns on Ebay. The motifs are all cut apart but not used - with all the exploring I've done online I still haven't found the source but I'm pretty sure they're not Aunt Martha's or Vogart. Each design features a Dutch girl with tulips doing various chores and singing a hymn on Sunday.

This red-line transfer sheet has 4 cute Mexican motifs: Juan astride a smiling burro, asleep under his sombrero with a smiling sun and yawning cactus, singing with a happy cactus, and a cute burro smiling at a cactus. There's also one tiny century plant motif, two tiny smiling cactus motifs, and a simple, large cross-stitch border. On the same sheet are two large, detailed landscape scenes with large trees, lakes, and cottages.
My sheet is a little yellowed and has one tear in a cottage scene. Aside from saying "Made in the U.S.A." there is no other information identifying the maker or the year of publication.

6 sweet Sunbonnet girl designs, in most of which she is accompanied by a tiny, mopsy dog. The patterns on her dresses are all really lovely and probably look beautiful when they're stitched. My sheet is almost complete - 3 small motifs have been cut out, and judging from their position they were probably the cute puppy. All the Sunbonnet girls are there, however.

3 designs for pillowcases or towels (you could only call them 22 if you split every single design up, I suppose). :) One large cross-stitch design, floral sprays, and a flower basket.
My envelope is clumsily creased in places - my transfer sheet is not complete. There are motifs missing from the top and bottom, but I'm not sure if they just repeat what is already there.

Six cute kitty romance motifs that show the cats in each stage of love (yes, cats in love, you read right). :) The motifs look like they'd fit well on tea towels and say "Boy", "Coy", "Joy", "Kiss", "Bliss", and "This."
My set is complete - only the "Coy" motif has been cut out but not used, and is still in the envelope. These are my first Laura Wheeler transfers - they appear to be mail order transfers, and the design on the mailing envelope is very dainty and beautiful.

A variety of straightforward looking fruit designs for embroidery or applique - there are grapes, peaches, cherries, lemons, apples, pears, plums, and strawberries. It looks like the applique with contrasting fabrics could look cute...
My envelope is pretty tattered and torn - inside is one complete, uncut sheet and another almost complete sheet - only a small cherry motif is missing.
