Here are some of my first designs, started when I first recieved my computer design program. It took awhile to learn how the program worked but I caught on eventually. When I first started designing rugs, I used a picture of graph paper and painstakingly colored each square on my computer. I then found out about a program that was specifically used to design for Cross Stitch and my creative process became so much easier after that!
All of my designs are suitable for 1:12th scale dollhouse projects when stitched on 40 count silk gauze. However, they would be suitable for any scale depending on the size of gauze you choose to use. Inspirations for these rugs came from photos of antique rugs. Amanda is done in the Aubusson style, while Belinda is in the Scandanavian style.
So far, most of my rugs and cushions are designed for 40 count silk gauze because this is the one I am most comfortable working on. I may start designing for other counts of gauze later as I begin to stitch on them.
My name is Yvette, and I will be writing this blog to tell you about the creative process that has gone into the creation of my Petitpoint patterns along with showing the stitching I have done of some of the rugs.
