Karin has posted a number of interesting miniature dolls house rugs in the Embroidery Flickr pool and I was curious to find out more about the book the patterns came from - Miniature Needlepoint Rugs for Dolls Houses by Susan McBaine. As you can see from the cover it's an old book but it has been reprinted and is still available on Amazon and presumably elsewhere. I haven't seen a copy of the book myself but looking at the reviews I don't quite think it's a book for beginners, despite the use of the word 'easy' on the front cover. It looks tempting though, specially if you're a dolls house collector or knows someone who is and could do with a rug or two ....


Thank you Karin for posting such interesting pieces in the Flickr pool!

Hi, I'm Jo - I feature new embroidery patterns Sundays on Feeling Stitchy. I also post on our Twitter and Pinterest.

Is there a new pattern you'd like us feature? Email me!
