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’.

A beautiful collection of dollhouse rugs!!!

This image of a beautiful collection of dollhouse miniature needlepoint rugs was recently sent to me by one of my customers, called Kim. She bought a rather large amount of kits from my website a while back, and has been busily stitching them up. This is actually just a small percentage of what she bought – as I said to her at the time, she’s going to be busy for quite a while!

They are all stitched on 18 count canvas, with one strand of Appleton’s crewel wool. This makes them very flat, with an ‘aged’ appearance, as Appleton’s do many soft shades, so it’s easy for me to pick colours for the kits that won’t look bright and harsh when they are placed in a dollhouse.

All of these designs are from my current range of dollhouse rug kits, except for one – that’s the little white bearskin rug in the lower left hand corner. That was one of Kim’s own creations. She took the tigerskin rug design, and stitched it all in white. It’s very cute, isn’t it?!

If you’d like to have a go at stitching something for a dollhouse, then take a look at my website, where there are almost 300 kits for all kinds of miniature needlepoint for 1:12 scale dollhouses.
