Seven new kits have just been launched on my website – cute little bolster cushions for your doll’s house. They measure just an inch and a half long, by five eighths diameter.You can choose from floral, ethnic or ‘all-over’ designs, in pastels and brights. Each bolster is to be worked on 32 count silk gauze, and is designed to be really simple to do.
Everything you need is included in the kit, from the silk gauze and Anchor stranded cotton (floss), to detailed making up instructions with diagrams, wadding, and a suitable needle. As usual with my kits, a clear colour block chart is included, to count the design from. There are even detailed instructions for how to make the tiny tassels that decorate each end of the bolster! Each bolster kit costs £12.95 , and postage & packing is free worldwide for these kits (as we only charge a flat rate of £1.25 on small orders of less than £10 ).
To see the designs, go to the ONLINE SHOP now.

Your work is unbelievable !
Like your bolster cushion tutorial – thanks for this !
Just amazing…what magnification do you use ? I have never stitched on silk gauze . . . I don’t think I could see good enough.
For 32 count silk gauze, I don’t use magnification at all – I just make sure I stitch in good natural daylight. I start to use a magnifier if I’m stitching on 40 count or 48, though – but even then, it’s only a 1.75, I think.
These are so sweet! Thanks for the finishing tutorial.
Thanks to the mention on CraftGossip, I found your site today and just wanted to say how wonderful your work is.
Your tutorials are also very clear so ‘Thank you’ for sharing those 🙂

This isn’t work I would ever do myself, but I enjoy looking at yours. Stunning. Your photos are brilliant too, from different angles and in different situations, which give exactly the right – and often surprising – indication of size. And you’re clearly open to inspiration from many sources – well, its all One source really, but you know what I mean. It gives a lot of variety to your work.
very beautiful and cute
