You don’t have to have a dollhouse to stitch mini things!

This little framed picture is stitched on 40 count silk gauze, and is a unique version of my ‘Elizabeth’ rug design, which usually is stitched on 18 count canvas with Appleton’s crewel wool. But Lorna, one of my customers, decided to do this tiny petit point version, which only measures 4 x 4 inches, and is framed in a picture frame just 9 inches square! It’s so cute when it’s stitched this small!

Here are some more pictures of the ‘Elizabeth’ rug that other customers have sent me, in more traditional mini settings. They are all wonderful in their own way.

The design is based on a William Morris ‘Hammersmith’ rug, in gorgeous shades of blue and burnt orange. If you’d like to stitch one of these, the needlepoint rug kit costs 28.95 GBP and is available here. The kit contains Appletons crewel wool, a suitable needle, detailed instruction, and 18 count canvas (you count the design from a colour block chart – the design is not printed on the canvas). The finished size of the rug when stitched from a kit is nine inches square.

A customer’s cat wants to check out the new minis!

If you own a cat, this image will not look unusual – as soon as you start doing minis, your cat needs to come and see what you are doing! A customer sent me this cute pic of her cat Emma, checking out the miniature needlepoint cat sampler she (the customer!) had just made from one of my kits.

If you’d like to stitch one of these, they are quick to make, to be stitched in needlepoint on 32 count evenweave fabric. All materials are included in the kit, including the wooden frame, and they cost 12.95 GBP each.

Miniature dollhouse scale needlepoint by my talented customers!

My customers sometimes send me images of the miniature dollhouse scale needlepoint that they’ve made from my kits, and I always love to see them, as I’m amazed by the talent and ingenuity of people to incorporate the kit designs into their own dollhouses.

Here’s a few examples of images that I’ve recently been sent:

This first one is of the ‘Judith’ rug, sent to me by Helen. She has created this amazing room to feature the rug in. The rug itself is stitched on 18 count canvas with Appletons crewel wool, and measures 9 x 7 inches.

Helen also stitched this Strawberry Thief chair seat design – this is an Arts and Crafts design (i.e. from the late 1800’s). It’s available as a full kit with woodwork to make a chair (in a different design to this one – this chair is one of Helen’s own), or as just the materials to make the chair seat, if you already have your own woodwork. The stitching is done with one strand of Anchor stranded cotton floss, on 32 count silk gauze.

This is a little sampler called ‘Hearts and Flowers’. The kit itself was won by Sarah S., on my Facebook Chat Group page, and when she had stitched the kit up, she posted the image of her completed sampler. It’s stitched with one strand of Anchor stranded cotton floss on 32 count evenweave fabric. The wooden frame is included in the kit.

This pretty round rug called ‘Bella’ is shown in a nursery with some wonderful little dolls and teddies. The rug measures six inches diameter, and is stitched on 18 count canvas with one strand of Appletons crewel wool.

Hasn’t it come out great? It’s stitched on 18 count canvas. Once stitched, it is glued on to an interlining backing, so that the interlining shows a little around the edges of the stitching, to resemble the ‘skin’.
