Handbag kits

Group of several dollhouse needlepoint hanbagsWouldn’t the lady dolls in any doll’s house covet these tiny handbags?! These are fairly quick to make, and are to be stitched on either 32 or 40 count silk gauze, depending on the design, using tent stitch (like half cross stitch).

The series of designs covers twelfth scale day bags and evening bags, for several different historical eras. There’s even an Art Deco one called ‘Jazz Age’.
Each miniature handbag kit contains a piece of silk gauze (32 or 40 – see the design description for details), Anchor stranded cotton threads, a colour block chart (the design is not printed on the fabric), detailed instructions, suitable needles, a tiny bead to simulate the ‘closure’, beading thread, and fine gold thread for the handle. Please note that these are non-opening bags. The bags measure approximately seven eighths of an inch across (2cm), when finished, on average.

There is a Free Online Tutorial showing exactly how to make and assemble one of these miniature handbags.
