I’ve been selling tea pots to go with the doll’s house teacosy kits that I sell, for several months, now. But I wanted to have ‘proper’ mini tea sets as well. Now, I have managed to find a supplier of really cute tea sets, in several patterns, to go with the teacosies, and at a really great price. A full set of tea pot, milk jug, sugar bowl with lid and four cups and saucers costs only £5.95, with free postage worldwide when bought from my website.
Just look at those tiny cups! They’re only 8 millimetres high!
The February issue (number 141) of The Doll’s House Magazine, published by Guild of Master Craftman Publications, has just gone on sale. This month’s issue has a three page article, featuring a tutorial on one of my twelfth scale teacosy designs – the ‘Willow Pattern’ one.
If you get to see a copy, there’s a special offer code in the magazine for people who buy the teacosy kit, giving a 20% discount off the usual price.
I have five teacosy designs altogether, and the kits for them are available on this page of my website.
I’ve been working all day on getting some editorial sent off to the stitching and doll’s house magazines, to advertise my new miniature needlepoint tray cloth kits. All my kits are for one twelfth scale doll’s houses (adult collector’s scale; not children’s!).
Each tray cloth is designed to be worked on 32 count silk gauze, and is really simple to do. Everything that you’d need is included in the kit, from the silk gauze and Anchor stranded cotton, to detailed making up instructions with diagrams. A whitewood, ready-assembled tea tray is also included, into which the finished tray cloth fits neatly. As usual with our kits, a clear colour block chart is included, to count the design from. There are five designs altogether – you can choose from a cottage-shaped cosy, several floral designs, a 1930’s style crinoline lady and a willow pattern motif.
