A beautiful set of doll’s house rooms with mini stitching in

Sometimes, customers of mine email me with images of the stitching that they have made from the kits that I sell. I always love seeing how people have used the kits in their doll’s houses and room settings – they are a talented lot!

Recently, a customer called Margaret, from Wales, sent me these amazing pictures of her latest doll’s house, which is a Tudor style house. She has furnished it in a Victorian / Arts & Crafts style, with Tudor wallhangings to suggest its long history. All the needlepoint items are from my range of kits.

This is the house, fully furnished.

The miniature version of a William Morris Hammersmith carpet features in this room

An attic room, with two carpets stitched on 18 count canvas, in needlepoint.

Isn’t Margaret’s house just beautiful?!

Lots more examples of doll’s houses featuring miniature embroidery can be seen in the Customers’ Gallery page on my website.

Finished embroidery: a tiny bellpull and bolster cushion

'Tabriz' doll's house scale bellpull and bolster cushion

This is my latest design, which I’ve done so far as a bellpull and a bolster cushion, on 32 count silk gauze. It’s called ‘Tabriz’. I’m also working on a carpet to co-ordinate with these, which will be for 18 count canvas, but that’s not quite ready yet 🙂

The bellpull is 4 1/2 inches long, and the bolster cushion is 1 1/2 inches long and 5/8 inches diameter. Both of them are stitched in needlepoint (like half cross stitch) using one strand of Anchor stranded cotton. The bellpull kits are £9.95 each, and the bolster cushion kits are £12.95 each.

Kits for each of them are available from my website  – for bellpulls look here, and for bolster cushions, look here. There are free online tutorials for each type of miniature needlepoint kit (and many others) – see here for details.
