|Tudor Rose embroidery in 1:12 scale|
In the main bedroom, the motif I embroidered on the counterpane, using some gold thread, is the red and white Tudor rose.
Dolls house Tudor bedroom embroidery
The bedcover in blue is stitched with curved bands of silver thread. The pattern was an integral part of the fabric so all I had to do was sew over the lines. Easy - like painting by numbers!
Miniature blackwork cushions
The Tudors were very keen on blackwork embroidery, and so am I. I like the crispness of the contrast between the white fabric and black thread. These cushions are made with designs featured in a dolls house magazine feature on Tudor times. Although they look intricate, they were easy to stitch as the motifs are repetitive.
Next on my 'to do' list is a wallhanging for the parlour.
