Here’s another miniature needlework stand for a doll’s house

Last week on my website I launched five new designs for needlework stand kits, to be stitched on 40 count silk gauze using tent and basketweave stitch (like half cross stitch). You can see them in the online shop here.

There are some ‘picture designs’, for various styles and eras in your doll’s house. And there are also three ‘work in progress’ designs for what would be ‘3-D’ items in real life. So, the embroiderer in your doll’s house can now be seen to be working on a project such as a pair of slippers, a handbag or a doorstop!
 
Each needlework stand kit contains a generous amount of 40 count silk gauze, Anchor stranded cotton threads, the mahogany frame pieces, a colour block chart (the design is not printed on the fabric), detailed instructions and a suitable needle. The stand measures two and three eighths of an inch wide by three and three quarters high (6cm by 9cm) when finished.

This needlework stand is stitched on 40 count silk gauze, from a kit. The design is called 'Flower Bowl'.

There is one new design that wasn’t quite ready last week, so it’s been added to the selection now: it’s a Victorian design of a bowl of summer flowers, on a striking black background. Not surprisingly, it’s called ‘Flower Bowl’.

If you are a beginner to mini-stitching and are unsure as to whether you would be able to make one of these needlework stands, there are FREE ONLINE TUTORIALS to show you what to do. The tutorial for the needlework stands guides you through every stage of stitching and finishing the needlework stand, with detailed photos to show you exactly what you need to do. You’ll see just how easy they are to make!

The kits cost 19.95 GBP each, and postage & packing is free worldwide on any orders from my website of 10 GBP or over (under 10 GBP, a flat rate charge of 1.25 GBP applies).

There are several ‘picture designs’, for various styles and eras in your doll’s house in the range. There are also several ‘work in progress’ designs for what would be ‘3-D’ items in real life.
