Vintage Stars and Stripes. Love this vintage flag embroidery transfer pattern. The Flag is such an important symbol of freedom. I imagine our grandmothers, or even great-grandmothers, hand embroidering this pattern during World War II. I especially treasure wartime patterns. I imagine the feelings they might have felt while working, feelings of strength, fear, and love. It was a time of strength and heartbreak for our nation and our grandparents. So many reasons why they were know as the “Greatest Generation”.
