Elizabeth A’s “Isobel” carpet

Elizabeth emailed me and asked if there was a way to enlarge the Isobel carpet kit design for her doll’s house, as her rooms are large. Rather than just try to explain how she could do it herself, I thought that this design should be quite a quick one for me to alter, so I had a go – and this is the result! I added a second trellis border around the first one, making the finished size of the carpet about nine inches across, instead of the original six inches.
