#dolls house makeover: front door mat (free patterns)

Dolls House Makeover...

So I haven't painted the outside of the house and I don't even have a front door yet but now I do have a door mat....
...well I had to start somewhere!


The mat isn't particularly to any scale I just made it to fit the existing stairs!

Here is how I made it...

I dug into my supplies and found some 14 count plastic canvas, floss and felt than I whipped up a cross stitch design...


I cross stitched the mat using 3 threads of floss (DMC colours 743 and 318 to be exact) and then trimmed the plastic canvas around the design.
I cut a piece of felt the same size, placed the canvas on top and blanket stitched the pieces together around the entire edge...
Here is the back...

Feel free to stitch up the design for your own dolls house. You could easily substitute aida or tapestry canvas if you don't have plastic canvas and glue the felt (or other backing) on to hide the stitching.

Here are a few more cute designs to choose from.......





....they would look cute in any combination of colours.

I would love to see a photo of any mats you make with these designs, feel free to post them to my facebook page.
