A novelty elephant teacosy and traycloth set in needlepoint for a dollhouse

New on my website this week is a matching set of an ‘Elephant’ teacosy kit, with a tray cloth kit echoing the pattern of the rug on the elephant’s back. If you love novelty teacosies, then you’ll love this set! They are both quick to stitch, and easy to assemble.

 

The teacosy measures an inch and a half wide, and is stitched on 32 count silk gauze

Both kits are to be stitched on 32 count silk gauze, in needlepoint embroidery. The teacosy kit contains stranded cotton, a generous piece of silk gauze, clear instructions and stitch diagrams, a suitable needle and a colour block chart to count the design from. The tray cloth kit contains all of the above, plus mahogany components to make the tea tray, which simply need gluing together.

Various designs of teapots and tea sets are also available to complement all the teacosies that I have in my range.

The kits are available from my website – the teacosy kit page is here, and the traycloth kit page is here. They can be bought separately, if you prefer.

If you haven’t stitched in this scale before, or you would like to know what is involved in making one of these kits, visit the FREE ONLINE TUTORIALS page and see how easy they are.

New dollhouse needlepoint kit just launched – make a ginger cat teacosy!

This is the latest dollhouse needlepoint embroidery kit that I have launched on my website – a teacosy in the shape of a ginger cat!

It is stitched on 32 count silk gauze, with one strand of Anchor stranded cotton thread (floss). Everything you need to complete the kit is included – a colour block chart to count the design from, detailed instructions, plenty of Anchor stranded cotton thread, a suitable needle, and a generous-sized piece of 32 count silk gauze fabric. The kits are available for £12.95 each. The little teapot and the blue china tea sets are also available.

There’s a free tutorial on my website, too, showing exactly how to put the teacosy kits together, so that you can see just how to do it, and how surprisingly simple they are to make. If you’ve never done stitching at this miniature scale before, there are also tutorials showing you how to get started, how to do the needlepoint / petit point stitches, and so on.

I’ve been meaning to design a cat teacosy for about five years, so I’m really pleased, not only that I’ve got around to doing one, but that it has come out as well as it has!
