One of my customers, called Rikke, recently sent me a lovely photo of the dollhouse cushions that she made in half scale (1/24th scale), and one in 1/12 scale for comparison. The larger cushion was made straight from the kit that she bought from my website.
She embroidered the larger cushion for her daughter’s dolls house, and the smaller ones for her own 1/24 scale house. Her daughter is six years old, and chose the ‘Flower ring pink’ cushion kit herself 🙂
The 1/12 scale cushion is stitched in needlepoint using the 22 count canvas supplied in the kit. The half scale cushions are stitched on 48 count silk gauze with one strand of the Anchor stranded thread leftover from the twelfth scale kit. Rikke added a few extra rows of stitching to make the sizes work as she wanted them to.
From the top left, the designs are Kate pink, Flower ring pink in 1/12 scale, Judith, Prudence cream, and Flower ring pink again but in 1/24th scale.
Aren’t they sweet when they’re so tiny?! Have a look at the cushions page on my website to see all the designs that are available – they are really quick and fun to make 🙂
