Teeny Tiny Doll House Embroidery


How do you like this teeny tiny embroidery piece? My mom made this years ago for her dollhouse.  My mom has made many dollhouse miniatures over the years. So very adorable! The embroidery hoop is made from a small coil from a key chain, and the needle is made from a straight pin with the ball removed from the top. As you can see, there are a couple of rust stains on the fabric. I'm not quite sure how old this is. She probably made it at least 20 years ago. My mom has so many talents it's not even funny. You wanna talk about creative...she's probably one of the most creative people I know.
