Can you say darling? I love to make all kinds of things. Sometimes I mold chocolate, sometimes I knit, sometimes I decoupage vases. A little of this, a little of that. And often when I see a new kind of project, particularly if it involves colors of yearn or thread, I have to try it. I had honestly never heard of punch embroidery before I saw a kit for this Colonial-style house at a quilt shop. The kit contained the fabric printed with the design, a paper instruction guide and the necessary thread. I bought a punch needle tool too. I have only made this project so far, but it was really relaxing and fun.
When I saw the kit, I immediately thought "dollhouse rug!" The finished piece is approximately 2 x 3 inches. Now that I have finished it, I really want it to be seen. You see, my dollhouse family just doesn't have company often enough to make me want to leave it there. I don't want to put this rug in front of my dollhouse fireplace and then turn out the lights and close the door.
I think that it could look really sweet with a narrow mat and old fashioned dull gold frame. Perhaps it will become something that I can keep on the piano? I just love it and I want to be able to see it. Have you ever tried punch embroidery?
