Finished embroidery – look at this beautiful doll’s house embroidery stitched by my customers!

My customers often send me photos of their stitching, and I love seeing them. My customers are so creative, it’s great to see the many different ways people can use the embroidery kits to make their doll’s houses come alive. This week, I’ve uploaded a new batch of images to the Customers’ Gallery page of my website. Here’s a taster of what you’ll see there:

Sue from Berkshire owns this beautiful house, and has been making the soft furnishings for it for several years. The house was lovingly made by her father, with great attention to detail.

This cosy bedroom features the needlepoint carpet called ‘Carole (pastel)’. It measures about 8 inches by 5.

The wallhanging to the left is based on the William Morris tapestry ‘Orange Tree’, and measures almost four inches square. It is stitched in Anchor stranded cotton. The carpet is stitched in Appleton’s crewel wool.

Janet B from Birmingham is a very keen stitcher, and owns several doll’s houses. Here is a picture of the bedroom in one of her doll’s houses. Isn’t the teddy cute?

The most recent photo I’ve had sent to me is from Susan C. She made a ‘hobby room box’, in contemporary style, and filled it with miniature versions of the hobbies that she enjoys – such as miniatures (obviously!), knitting and using her computer. She used one of my chart packs to create her own colourway of one of my carpet designs (this one is called ‘Josie’). I think it’s come out beautifully, and really sets off the room.

Finished embroidery – a room in my doll’s house

These miniature embroidery pieces were designed and stitched by me over several years, but I always had in mind right from the beginning the idea to create a co-ordinating set of stitched pieces in gold and red tones.  To give you an idea of the scale (which is the standard collector’s scale of  what’s called ‘one twelfth’, by the way) –  the cushion measures an inch and a quarter across, the firescreen is two and three quarters high, and the carpet is six and a half inches wide.

The carpet is based on a ‘real’ one, in the Aubusson style, and stitched with Appleton’s crewel wool on 18 count canvas.  I then took motifs from that, and designed a matching bellpull on 32 count silk gauze (stitched with one strand of Anchor cotton), and the firescreen appeared soon after. All are available as kits from my website except for the footstool.
