    are used to using for full size embroidery or cross stitch work it is not necessary to invest in a pair specially for miniature embroidery Thread snips are also useful additions to your sewing box A pair of sharp dressmaking scissors are useful for cutting fabric too Just make sure that whatever types you use they are really sharp FRAMES If you do not usually use a frame I strongly advise you to start now There is nothing so demoralising as spending hours on a piece of embroidery with most of it scrunched up in one hand as you work on the exposed corner only to flatten out the fabric and find that what you have made is a bumpy misshapen failure Probably then unless your tension is very light and even a frame of some kind will be necessary Using a frame need not make embroidery an uncomfortable unwieldy experience though They are not expensive and if you shop around and get the right sort of frame for you you will be amazed at the improvement in your work A rectangular rotating frame is useful for working anything using canvas such as the carpet or wallhanging kits if the fabric is larger than about 5 inches square smaller than that it can be worked in your hand without a frame without distorting in the process The kind of rotating frame I like to use is hand held and has 24 inch rollers and 12 inch side bars There are versions on the market that clamp onto table tops while others are floor standing The canvas is fixed to the frame by sewing the top and bottom edges to webbing strips on the rollers and fixed at the sides by lacing with strong thread It can be time consuming to set up a piece of canvas on a frame but it is worth the effort if you are going to spend many hours on a piece of work as using this kind of frame almost completely eliminates distortion of the canvas This picture shows various sizes of hoop frame where two wooden or plastic rings fit one inside the other and hold the fabric tautly between them Although this kind of frame is ideal for free style surface embroidery it is unsuitable for canvas or silk gauze as the hoops crush the thick canvas threads and adequate tension cannot be maintained So this picture shows what NOT to use A frame cut from thick mount board with an aperture cut slightly smaller than the fabric piece is what you need when stitching on silk gauze With a card mount you simply use masking tape to stick the fabric to the card so that the fabric is held tautly and the central area is exposed so that stitching is easily accomplished Where it would be helpful to use a card mount the relevant size that you need to make it is detailed in the instructions of the kits such as the

  • Needlepoint stitches | Dollhouse Needlepoint Kits
    See Diagrams 1 and 2 for how each stitch is made and also the photos beneath the diagrams The numbers on the stitch diagrams signify bring the needle up at 1 down at 2 up at 3 and so on This photo shows an Eleanor carpet being stitched The turquoise detail has already been worked in tent stitch and the pale peach background of the border is being worked in basketweave stitch Tent stitch is worked in either horizontal or vertical rows across the fabric making short slanting stitches across one intersection of fabric thread on the front and long slanting stitches on the back The stitch is used for the detailed design areas To only use this stitch for the whole piece of work would cause significant distortion to your fabric as the continual sideways pulling of the diagonal stitches on the back would make the fabric twist out of shape Basketweave stitch is worked in diagonal rows across the fabric making similar short slanting stitches on the front but the vertical and horizontal stitches on the back look interwoven hence the name Both types of stitch look the same from the front when completed but using basketweave for the larger areas of colour will virtually eliminate distortion of the fabric especially if you use a frame as well You will need to take care when starting new lengths of thread try to end mid row so that it is easy to tell in which direction you were travelling If you do two down rows instead of one down and one up you will end up with a slight diagonal ridge which may be noticeable on the finished stitching especially over large pale areas of one colour To make sure you are working each type of stitch correctly compare your stitches with these photos For comparison half cross stitch has also been included but only to show you which stitch NOT to use for miniature needlepoint as thread coverage is too sparse when using this stitch for a needlepoint design Notice how much you can see through the gaps between stitches and see exposed white threads of the underlying canvas when half cross stitch is used The tent stitch covers the canvas better and tends to fill the holes better WHAT IS THE WASTE KNOT METHOD AND HOW DO I USE IT WHEN STARTING A NEW LENGTH OF THREAD To illustrate this method of starting each new thread length I have used a Sophie miniature cushion design The canvas has been marked lightly at the edges to show the half way points along each side As on all my instruction sheets for all the kits I design I recommend that you begin stitching in the centre Using the waste knot method means that the back of your work will be neat and flat When starting each new length knot your thread but take the needle from the front to the back about an inch away from where you intend

  • How to mount silk gauze | Dollhouse Needlepoint Kits
    each stitch You can get really even professional looking results with your very first attempt if you mount the silk gauze rather than simply hold the silk gauze in your hand For each type of miniature needlepoint kit in my range that uses silk gauze the instruction sheet will tell you the size of the mount that you need to cut and also the size of the aperture within it In this tutorial I will use the silk gauze piece for one of my dining chair kits as an example As well as silk gauze being included in several of our kits we also sell cut pieces in various sizes and counts see the table on the left All of these are available in our ONLINE SHOP 32 count silk gauze is the easiest one to start with if you haven t stitched on silk gauze before We can also sell pieces cut straight from the roll please email me for details and prices First of all cut a piece of mount board such as artists use or stiff cardboard to the dimensions listed on the relevant instruction sheet In pencil mark the size of the aperture centrally on the card Using a sharp craft knife and resting on a piece of scrap wood or something similar to protect your table cut out the hole carefully along the pencil lines Cut a length of one inch wide masking tape the length of the longest side of the card mount then cut it longways in half Fix one side of the piece of gauze along one long edge of the mount Stick the masking tape along the opposite edge of the silk gauze and position it carefully in place on the other long edge of the card mount making sure that the grain of the fabric threads is as straight and square as possible and that the gauze is pulled taut before pressing the tape in place firmly on the mount Cut a second piece of masking tape and again cut it into two long strips Fix the two remaining edges of the gauze in place holding the silk gauze completely taut on the mount Although you can choose to have the side with the masking tape on or the other side as the front I prefer to stitch with the non taped side as the front as it is visually cleaner I find it helpful to attach the colour block chart that I am working from to the top of the card mount with paperclips so that it is really quick and easy to count from Glancing from the silk gauze to the chart in this way is less tiring on your eyes than looking away to a chart placed at a greater distance When you begin stitching you now have a tidy taut silk gauze surface to work on helping you to create a perfect piece of needlepoint embroidery Now that you can see how easy it is to

  • How to add a fringe | Dollhouse Needlepoint Kits
    every inch of fringing or one metre for every 2 5cm so generous amounts are included in each kit Cotton being thinner than wool gives a flatter more realistic look to the fringe Fringing stitch is similar to a cross stitch with a loop included It looks more complicated than it actually is so it is definitely worth having a go Follow the photos here to see what you need to do Start by threading your needle with about three feet of fringing thread Secure the end by knotting it and running the needle through a few stitches on the back of the main carpet design Hold the canvas with the main stitched area facing upward the unworked border of canvas folded under and secured in place by the hemming stitches on the two long sides and the row of holes that you are going to work the loops along held horizontally in front of you Bring the needle up ready to work the first stitch in the second to last hole from the left hand edge The FIRST hole along this edge should already have a wool overcast stitch in it completing the adjacent side of the carpet s hem Remember that for all the fringing stitches you will be working through TWO LAYERS of canvas but as the holes should be aligned in pairs they will be referred to here as if they were one layer Pull the thread all the way through Take the needle down though the third hole from the left hand edge but this time leave a loop about half an inch long this size is not crucial as you will later trim the loops to equal lengths of fringe If you place a lollipop stick or a pencil in the loops as you make them they will all be roughly the same size when completed To hold this loop securely take the thread from right to left behind the loop you ve just made and then take the needle down through the first hole from the left hand edge Slowly pull the thread through until it lies flat and taut making a long slanting stitch which traps the loop in place It may help as you are pulling the thread through to lay the loop down facing forwards towards you and tease the slanting stitch into position with the first finger of your left hand Bring the needle up again in the third hole from the left hand edge this hole already has a stitch in it ready to make the next stitch Continue in this manner along the whole length It is quite rhythmical once you get the hang of it Think of the needle movement as up down leaving a loop DOWN it s the third movement the laying of the long slanting stitch to the left that holds the loop in place that tends to catch people out Prepare to cut the loops when the whole length is finished by
