  • Jubilee - Ebony and Coral - Downloadable
    View

    The Craft Gallery Jubilee miniature carpet design was inspired by the exquisite 19th century Indian Agra Rugs which have complex and classical compositions often including floral motifs and spiraling tendrils.

    This carpet looks equally attractive in a modern or traditional setting - either framed and displayed on the wall in a home or office or fringed and backed and displayed on a table surface as a perfect miniature carpet.

    Doll’s house enthusiasts love the design and depending on choice, work it on 18 count or 22 count canvas and sometimes on fine even weave fabric such as 24 count Congress Cloth.

    The joy of this design is that depending on the count of canvas used the end result may be a beautiful piece to grace a human home or a smaller, finer little carpet with perfect proportions for the floor of a doll’s house! Why not make both. We have given details for the materials and supplies needed.
