Dorthe lives in Denmark, and has been a customer of my dollshouse scale needlepoint kits for many years. She often sends me pictures of her stitching progress. Here’s her latest offering, which is just gorgeous:
This little garden room has this ‘Prudence’ carpet centre stage, surrounded by 1:12 potted plants and cane furniture:
This is a room setting picture that I took a few years ago, of the same design, that I stitched when I first designed it (I always stitch one to make sure that the design ‘works’, and to check how much wool is needed for the kit packet).
This ‘Prudence’ rug design in 1:12 scale is available as a kit for £19.95 from my website. The kit has everything you need to make this dollhouse scale carpet – 18 count canvas, Appleton’s crewel wool, a tapestry needle, colour block chart to count the design from (the design isn’t printed on the canvas), fine thread for the fringe, and detailed instructions. It measures 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches when finished. I based the design on a William Morris carpet that I saw in the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow a few years ago. The miniature needlepoint kit would make a great gift for someone who loves the miniatures hobby (whether that’s a friend, or yourself!).
I always love seeing what my customers have stitched, so if you have any pictures of the stitching you have done for your dollhouse, please send me .jpg images to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I could well feature them here!
There is also a section on my website where I showcase customers’ stitching, if you’d like to see more inspirational pictures of mini rooms.
