Finished embroidery – more beautiful doll’s house rooms

Here are some views of rooms in a doll’s house by a customer of mine called Susan. She has two beautiful doll’s houses, both made by her father, and she has gradually been buying miniature embroidery kits from me for several years, as she completes her houses.

An elegant doll's house dining room

This smart dining suite stands on an ELEANOR carpet. It is stitched on 18 count canvas, in needlepoint, using one strand of Appleton’s crewel wool. The finished carpet measures just over 9 inches by 6 inches. In the background, on the chaise longue, is a CAROLE PASTEL cushion , which is worked on 22 count canvas, using Anchor stranded cotton.

A pretty rug in green and peach on the landing of a doll's house

A BARBARA SMALL (GREEN) carpet fits neatly on the landing on the first floor. This small carpet is one of my best-sellers, as it is so versatile. The fringing is much easier to do than it looks, too!

The William Morris sitting room, with a carpet called 'Elizabeth' taking pride of place

The ELIZABETH carpet, a square William Morris ‘Hammersmith’ design, looks stunning in this living room, papered with authentic twelfth scale William Morris wallpaper. There is a BELLA cushion on the armchair to the left (with another one just peeping over the sofa), and a LITTLE OWL firescreen on the hearth. The firescreen kits are worked on 32 count silk gauze, and the kits come with a simple-to-assemble metal firescreen.

A round rug in the doll's house music room

A BELLA carpet takes pride of place in Sue’s music room, with a matching cushion on the armchair. A Bella footstool also looks good in this room, but is no longer available as a kit.

These images are examples from the Customers’ Gallery pages of my website. For more inspirational pictures, sent in by my clever customers, go to the Gallery index page. If you have any images yourself, of stitching that you have made from kits designed by me, please let me know by sending an email to janet@janetgranger.co.uk !
