Vintage Projects

Many vintage projects were quite sparse in their directions. Sometimes transfers or project sheets had to be sent away for, making them very difficult to find today. Wherever possible, I have recreated the patterns with extra directions or a printable design. Some patterns, such as the woolly ball, were created from just the picture.

Vintage Singercraft Transfers

Recreated Designs

In order to make the rich design history of the Singercraft Guide available to today's collectors and stitchers, I have recreated these designs from pictures of the vintage projects. Some of these designs were rug-hooking and toy designs, others were made specifically for the Singercraft Guide.

Rugs and Bathroom Sets

- McCall No. 41.

Singer/Walker Transfers

I do not have any of the transfers marked"wanted". If you have them please ! If you are willing to trace or sell me your copy so I can make it available to others I would be happy to link to your website/etsy/ebay etc shop

I am also looking for any Singer Brand designs after "H" and any other Singercraft transfers not mentioned here.

Some letters of the alphabet were re-used. If you have a transfer design that doesn't match the ones shown here even if the transfer "number" is the same, I do not have it.

- all purpose motifs

Wanted Transfer G (unknown design)

Original Designs

I couldn't resist using my rug grid to make a few original designs. As I create new ones I'll make them available here for download.

Designs from Other Sources

When it comes to finding designs for Singercraft work it can be good to think outside the box and see the possibilities in designs for other types of crafts.

The following are just a few ideas.



This booklet is full of charts that can be enlarged and used for Singercraft rugs and other items. Scroll almost halfway down the page to find it as a free pdf download.

Small cross stich patterns can be enlarged for making attractive novelty rugs.

A large number of these can be found in books and free ones are available on many websites. One site that I found is . I especially like the crayons design

Patchwork quilt patterns are another type of design that lends itself to Singercraft work.

Choose a simple design or enlarge a more complex block to make it easier to stitch.
