This image of a beautiful collection of dollhouse miniature needlepoint rugs was recently sent to me by one of my customers, called Kim. She bought a rather large amount of kits from my website a while back, and has been busily stitching them up. This is actually just a small percentage of what she bought – as I said to her at the time, she’s going to be busy for quite a while!
They are all stitched on 18 count canvas, with one strand of Appleton’s crewel wool. This makes them very flat, with an ‘aged’ appearance, as Appleton’s do many soft shades, so it’s easy for me to pick colours for the kits that won’t look bright and harsh when they are placed in a dollhouse.
All of these designs are from my current range of dollhouse rug kits, except for one – that’s the little white bearskin rug in the lower left hand corner. That was one of Kim’s own creations. She took the tigerskin rug design, and stitched it all in white. It’s very cute, isn’t it?!
