With traditional-looking needlepoint so hot on the haute couture runways for fall, can the well-appointed doll be far behind?
That queen of miniature needlepoint, Janet Granger has introduced a line of miniature needlepoint bags. The designs, pictured here, are on 30 or 45 mesh silk gauze. They cover a wide range of styles.They are in 1/12 scale (1 inch = 1 foot) and include both day and evening bags.
If they look like those high fashion outfits, it isn’t coincidental, both draw on the rich tradition of needlepoint.
The kits contain the gauze, Anchor floss, the charted design, beads, and complete finishing instructions. When complete, these non-opening bags measure about 7/8 inch.
The picture show the front of each bag, but the backs also have designs, but they are less elaborate. They are under Ten British pounds (about $16 US). She also has a special bundle price for all 8 kits.
If you love them but want to see how to make them, Janet has provided a free on-line tutorial.
Thanks and a tip of the hat to Denise at Craft Gossip.
