About the designs

More then fifty small designs From a few you see, on the left and on the right, thumbnails. You can click on this thumbnails or click on the links above to go to the pages with the designs. The first ten designs, all with ducks, are very small borders, most of them without even a "contour-border". Above all they are funny. Different from the other designs, which, just for decoration, could be hanged on a wall, this borders asked to be used. For instance on a little blanket for the bed of a child, on a bib and so on. For some of the borders I designed a corner. So they can used for a rectangular piece of work. Creating a corner design for small borders isn't difficult. It makes fun to design a tiny motif for that corner. Just try it. You can find grids on this site to help you.

The mini medallions you can use as a kind of logo. Other medallions are already more elaborated. "Seahorses", for sure, is a fine design. These borders and medallions are suitable as a first piece of work. Then you can see if you like the result and you can get used to the method of working. They also gives a quick result

The borders with birds are not really that small and very characteristic for the designs from around 1900.

You don't find photographs of executions of these small designs on this web site. On one hand because most of them I never made and on the other hand those I did make I gave away. So if you use one of these designs, I would be happy with a photograph of the result.
