Magic Carpet Collection

This collection is different from a lot of my pieces in that it uses only simple tent stitch all over. The design is based on a lovely old oriental carpet and is similar to the Turkish Tassel Bag and Doorstop. These lovely old ethnic textiles designs have always been a favourite for me.

All the stitching is worked in stranded cotton using four strands of one colour and two of another, this give a slightly muted effect rather like an oriental carpet.

The little felt lined pockets keep your embroidery scissors or thread cutter safe. Take the scissors or thread cutter out to use them and then use the tagged twisted cord to pull them back inside the pocket.
The kits contain everything you need except for some polyester filling or sheep’s wool to complete the Scissor Keeper. Worked from a chart in stranded cotton on size 18 canvas.
