Would you like to make a table runner and placemats for your dollhouse?

These are the latest table runner and placemat kits that I have launched for twelfth scale doll’s houses. They are based on the most popular motif that I have in my range of miniature needlepoint, which is called ‘Summer Roses’. Although the motif itself is based on a Victorian design, it suits almost any era of doll’s house – even up to the present day – as flowers are timeless.

Both the table runner and the placemats are to be stitched on 32 count silk gauze, in tent stitch, which is really easy to do (it’s like half cross stitch). The placemats are 1 3/8 inches across by an inch high, and the table runner is 3 1/2 inches long by 7/8 inches wide. The kit for the placemats contains enough materials to make four placemats. The placemats kit can be found here and costs £14.95, and the table runner kit can be found here and costs £12.95. There are tutorials on how to make up each of these types of kit on my website here.

There are lots of other kits in my dollhouse needlepoint range, using variations of this design – here they all are, grouped together:

New 1930s style dollhouse needlepoint table runner and placemat sets to make!

How would you like to make some stunning table linens for your doll’s house? These are the latest table runner and placemats sets that I have launched for those of you who love to stitch miniature needlepoint. They are based on a really popular motif from the 1930’s – the Crinoline Lady. This motif appeared on all kinds of household linens during the decade of the 1930’s. The lady, in her full-skirted dress, stands in a garden under an arbour which is covered in roses.

The carpet that is shown in the image below is called ‘Judith’, and is available as a kit on 18 count canvas from here. Although I didn’t design the Crinoline lady set to co-ordinate with this carpet….don’t they look good together?!

If the Crinoline lady motif really appeals to you, then there is also a dollhouse scale teacosy kit and a traycloth kit (which includes the wooden components to make the tray as well) in the same design.
