If you’d like to save money on dozens of my best-selling dollhouse needlepoint kits, then head over to my Etsy ‘DollhouseNeedlepoint’ website (this is the website where I feature just my best-sellers, and is not the same thing as my main janetgranger.co.uk website!), where all my kits there are 10% off until midnight on 10th July, as part of Etsy’s ‘Christmas in July’ promotion. You don’t need any special code or coupon – the discount is automatically deducted.

Miniature needlepoint for you to drool over!

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 janet@janetgranger.co.uk, 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.

Dollhouse needlepoint kits

More dollhouse inspiration – beautiful mini stitching!

I’m always really pleased to see the miniature needlepoint that I sell as kits when it is stitched up and inside someone’s dollhouse!  I’ve got some more dollhouse inspiration for you – this time, this beautiful mini stitching is by Dorthe, who lives in Denmark, and she makes the most gorgeous dollhouse rooms!

Dorthe recently contacted me with this series of photos. The large carpet featured in this fisherman’s house is a very old miniature needlepoint carpet design of mine – it was included in my book ‘Miniature Needlepoint Carpets’, way back in 1996 (please don’t contact me for copies – it’s been out of print for about 15 years, now!). This design is called Hazel, and is a very traditional oriental carpet. When stitched on 18 count canvas and then fringed, it measures about ten inches by six. Isn’t Dorthe’s room fantastically beautiful? I love the panelled walls.

This softly feminine miniature room features the Elizabeth carpet design, based on a William Morris Hammersmith carpet. But Dorthe altered the original colourway, and stitched hers in lighter peachy shades (the original kit design has a lot more denim blue in the centre area). She has stitched several Elizabeth cushions for her chairs, too, making the room look very co-ordinated.

I have a real soft spot for nurseries! I just adore this room! There are so many tiny toys in it to get your attention. The carpet is called ‘Katrina’, and is a nice, bright choice for this children’s room. This one is still available as a kit.

This round carpet in the foreground of this room is called Bella, and is one of my most popular kits – probably because soft pink is such a popular colour for interior design.

This is another view of the same room, showing the Laura carpet at the back of the room. This is another very old design from my book, which I no longer sell as a kit. I have good memories of this design, as it was the first design I ever sold in kit form, back in 1996! It looks very stylish in Dorthe’s dollhouse room here.

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 janet@janetgranger.co.uk, 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.
