  • Make a teacosy | Dollhouse Needlepoint Kits
    motif is also available on a bellpull kit See our ONLINE SHOP for details These Janet Granger teacosy kits are to be worked on 32 count silk gauze using tent stitch for the detail and basketweave stitch for the background See the NEEDLEPOINT STITCHES Tutorial if you have not done these stitches before they are very simple to do Mount the silk gauze into a card mount as described in the SILK GAUZE Tutorial This will make it much easier to work stitches with an even tension and also makes your miniature stitching quicker to do Start stitching from the centre of the design as described in the tutorial NEEDLEPOINT STITCHES LINK mentioned above working outwards When all the detail is complete fill in the background IMPORTANT NOTE The teacosy designs have a front panel and a back panel worked separately and then stitched together One large piece of silk gauze is included in the kit Make sure that you leave a gap of unworked silk gauze of at least half an inch between the two panels when stitching the designs as shown on the chart to allow for a hem allowance on each panel when making up When all the stitching is complete trim the unworked gauze around each panel to a quarter of an inch all the way round As you fold back the quarter inch seam allowance of bare gauze along the base of each piece of the teacosy make sure that the fold lies right along the centre of the bottom row of stitches so that no bare silk gauze is left showing from the front Finger press the fold to set the crease Take a length of leftover stranded cotton in the same shade as the background of the teacosy so that the stitches will blend in as much as possible Using a single strand secure the end of a length about 12 inches long by knotting the cotton and making two back stitches in the seam allowance at one side Slipstitch the hem edge lightly to the reverse of the needlepoint stitches making sure that you do not pierce the front of your work while you do this When both front and back have been hemmed along the baseline fold back the seam allowance of the remaining edges of the teacosy and finger press to set the fold Work slowly around curved edges easing the seam allowance in place Then place the two halves of the teacosy together wrong sides facing With a new length of cotton stitch the two halves together using overcast stitch as illustrated at LEFT Take the needle through the two layers of gauze through the outermost line of needlepoint stitches each time so that no bare gauze shows when you have finished Make a stitch every two gauze threads along the seam Pull each stitch tightly as you finish making it Make sure that you leave an opening at the bottom for the teapot to fit in When you

  • Make a traycloth | Dollhouse Needlepoint Kits
    the silk gauze into a card mount as described in the SILK GAUZE Tutorial This will make it much easier to work stitches with an even tension and also makes your miniature stitching quicker to do Start stitching from the centre of the design as described in the tutorial NEEDLEPOINT STITCHES mentioned above working outwards When all the detail is complete fill in the background When all the stitching is complete press your work with an iron on medium setting with the stitching face down on a soft cloth pulling the gauze if necessary to get it dead square Then trim the unworked gauze to a quarter of an inch all the way round The tray cloth now needs hemming with a slip stitch to finish it Start by holding the work with the right side of the stitching facing you As you fold back the quarter inch seam allowance of bare gauze along the top edge of the tray cloth make sure that no bare silk gauze is left showing from the front Finger press the fold to set the crease Then turn the work a quarter turn to the left and fold the adjacent edge down Make sure that the corners are folded tightly and straight so that the finished tray cloth will be neat Continue in this way around all four sides Take a length of leftover stranded cotton in the same shade as the background of the tray cloth so that the stitches will blend in as much as possible please note that for clarity in the step by step photos I have used a contrasting colour Using a single strand secure the end of a length about 12 inches long by knotting the cotton and making two back stitches near to a corner taking the thread through the backs of previously worked stitches only Make one or two slip stitches near the corner to hold down what will be the last of the four sides that you hem then fold down the adjacent edge and catch that down neatly with two stitches made very close to the edge Then work your way along the hem making a slip stitch into every third or fourth gauze hole at least two holes in from the raw edge Do not pull the thread too tightly just slip stitch the hem edge lightly to the reverse of the needlepoint stitches making sure that you do not pierce the front of your work while you do this Finish off with two small back stitches Press your work again for a really neat look Making up the tray To complete the tray first lightly sand the mahogany pieces with fine sandpaper Sand the side pieces to fit the tray base exactly if necessary Trial fit before gluing Then using wood glue sparingly along the sides of the base piece fix the handles into position against the short sides of the tray first then the long side pieces against the long sides

  • Make a wallhanging | Dollhouse Needlepoint Kits
    leave it on the ironing board to cool completely before moving it The starch in the canvas will set again and the shape will stay put You may want to check with a set square to make sure the canvas is dead square if not go through the process again NEVER iron on the front of the canvas whilst re shaping it won t help but it WILL ruin your stitching by flattening and dulling it To hem the wallhanging take one strand from a six strand two foot length in the same shade as you used for the final row of needlepoint stitches thread the same tapestry needle that you used for the needlepoint and knot the ends together as you will be oversewing the canvas edge with a double thickness of thread Start by securing the thread on the back by running the needle under a few stitches It is easier if you start part way along a side rather than at a corner Pass the needle to the front of the canvas through a hole in the last row that you used when stitching the main design Now turn the work so that the right side is facing towards you You will hem the wallhanging with the canvas facing this way from now on Fold the unworked half inch of canvas down so that one straight row of holes is right on the crease edge Moving the needle to the left of where it emerged take a stitch straight through from the back to the front through both thicknesses of canvas This will make a slanting stitch over the edge of the doubled over canvas Do not pull the thread too tight the stitch should lay softly around the edge Make sure all your stitches are worked at the same tension to ensure a neat outline Continue in this way making stitches straight through two layers along the side until the thread length starts to run out To end the length neatly take the needle over the top edge of the canvas for the beginning of the next stitch but rather than come out at the front again slide the needle under the half inch of canvas as in the photo to the right Make two small back stitches through the backs of previous tent stitches in the main design to secure the thread and cut the end off neatly Start a new length emerging at the front through the next hole to the left on the front as before When you approach a corner of the wallhanging make sure when you have about an inch of stitching still to do that you have about 9 inches of thread in the needle If not start a new thread length now as it is difficult to start a new length right at the corner Just before you get within half an inch of the corner fold down the adjacent side in the same way that you did when
