These cute little poodles playing
with ball originated as a filet lace design charted in a French needlework
magazine from the 1920's.
adapted the design to make two different charts - A Single Poodle and A
Pair of Poodles. You can purchase each chart singly, or the pair of
charts at a discount price.
Each designs fits a Clippy
Cover Girl bag sleeve and you could make one for each side of the bag.
Alternatively they would make a charming pair of cushions.
particular Pair of Poodles design is slightly finer work than the single poodle design, and is worked
on a 10 Count canvas. I suggest working this in a simple tent stitch
which works better with this size of canvas.
This stitch is explained in the downloaded materials.
you are going to make this design for a Clippy bag there is no need to stitch
the background. I left it blank and inserted some bright spotted felt (from a
craft shop) and added some pretty ribbons.
You could change the background to a
plain colour or a gingham material. I also think that the poodle could be accessorized
further with a diamante button for an eye and maybe a sparkly collar! You
could also change the colours of the dogs to match your own. Or maybe colour the
poodles in pastel shades!
can download the chart to work this design by clicking on the link below. The
chart comes with instructions for working the design and making it the correct
size to fit the Clippy bag sleeve.
design is also suitable for complete beginners who have never worked any
