My first vintage pattern

I bought my very first vintage pattern off ebay this week, Maudella 4894.

I’m tempted to use Joan Holloway as my inspiration and make it in a bright blue fabric like this:

I can’t wait to make it!

Cute or creepy? Swedish tapestry

Cute or creepy?

Here’s a tapestry I found in a thrift store on a recent weekend trip to Stockholm. It shows two children with a lamb and some Swedish writing saying something like ‘Ba Ba White Lamb’. It’s currently draped over an armchair but I’m thinking of turning it into a cushion or putting it into a frame. I like the naive style and bright colours, but I can’t quite decide if it’s just a bit odd. What do you think – cute or creepy?
