Teresa Layman Designs

New from Teresa Layman Designs, this is an EXQUISITE set of miniature knotted rugs... perfect for a dollhouse, or even better -- framed and hanging with your favorite finished pieces!!! Joining our needlework industry, Teresa has been designing in the miniatures field for a few years -- and now we've discovered her!!! These tiny rugs -- 'My Cottage' measures a mere 3-1/8 x 2-1/4 -- are simply French and Colonial Knots with one strand of floss on sturdy muslin -- like weaver's cloth! The design is presented just like Punch Needle -- stamped onto the ground fabric. You stretch it tight in the hoop -- just like Punch Needle -- only this time work on the front of the piece! I've never been a fan of French Knots... but Colonials are a breeze... and we got to try it out at Market! You have the option of packing your knots in really tightly... or relaxing a bit... whichever you want!

Kitty Corners from Teresa Layman -- click to see more Our models feature approx 1000 knots per square inch worked in Colonials, and 2000 per sq in worked in French Knots! Teresa promises stitching time per square inch runs between 3 and 6 hours, depending on which knots you use. So... 'My Cottage,' for instance, should take approx 22 to 40 hours. Offered as the design stamped onto the fabric, the needle is included, as well as complete instructions... written in the order of areas you stitch first. I cannot possibly describe to you with my words, how beautiful and charming these are. They have enchanted me... and I want EVERYBODY to have at least one to love and enjoy for years and years to come!!!

I'm knot happy! It's knot fun! I'm knot interested. Knot again! Knot your average stitch. Knot till the cows come home. I'm knot serious. I'm knot inspired. Knot until pigs fly. I'm knot impressed. Knot today! Knot till tomorrow. Knot necessarily. Knot a lot. knot tonight. Believe it or knot!

New! Teresa is featured in one of her local newspaper's articles... something QUITE fun to read. We couldn't do one of her museum-quality miniatures... but the article will just give you a glimpse into her talents!


Teresa Layman Hooters -- click to see more Hooters
Aren't they the cutest midnight trio? Finishing approx 2-1/2 x 3-1/2, this is a good basic design to choose as a beginning piece -- there are larger areas on one color in here.

Look at the difference in this one compared to Merry Makers, for instance. Less color change, less hassle. How can you pass these little guys up?

Teresa Layman Stock Pile -- click to see more

Stock Pile
Little Mousie (way on top!), chicken, goat, piggy, sheep and cow... isn't this great? I see it framed with a checkered mat treatment, hanging on a kitchen wall.

Finishing approx 2-1/2 x 5 -- just such a quintessential farm-flavor!


Teresa Layman KNOTWORK Wild Flowers -- click to see more Wild Flowers
Finishes approx 5-1/4 inches square, 4 charming flower garden borders -- these would really be pretty with a touch of hand-dyed floss in the flowers.

You probably can't see the center detail, but it features 16 squares with the palest dots in it... nothing too dramatic to take away from all those pretty flowers.


Teresa Layman KNOTWORK Pinwheels -- click to see more Pinwheels
A classic quilt design, there are only 9 colors of DMC in here, blues, pinks and purples.

A companion in size and subject to Teresa's other quilt-inspired designs, this one finishes approx 3-5/8 x 2-3/4.


Teresa Layman KNOTWORK All the Tea in China -- click to see more All The Tea in China
Would this be referring to all the tea currently residing in the country of China or the tea in the precious cups made of china that you'll be knotting??? Finishing approx 4-1/4 inches in diameter, every teeny tea cup is different, and beautifully organized amidst round borders of scallops, stripes, swirls, checkerboards and waves!

I'd definitely frame this one for kitchen wall -- no tea cup sitting on this!!!


Teresa Layman KNOTWORK Vintage Roses -- click to see more Vintage Roses
This one is a little more involved. Still the same knots, still the same one strand of DMC, there is just more detail in this 5-1/8 x 6-7/8 inch piece, which is about twice the size of most of Teresa's other things! The design is stunningly gorgeous, all those little diamonds -- 1/2 an inch by an inch -- each have a tiny rose or leaf design in them.

The border design is so delicate that you'll have single knots decorating the centers of the roses. NOT FOR A BEGINNING KNOTTER... choose Pinwheels instead!!!


Happily Ever After from Teresa Layman -- click to see more Chocolate! from Teresa Layman -- click to see more Chocolate! & Happily Ever After
Teresa Layman has two new miniature knot work patterns -- Chocolate is my favorite! Line patterns that you fill in with tiny French Knots -- just like painting by number -- Chocolate makes a 4-1/4 inch round doll house rug or small doily sit about -- just like some of Teresa's other garden rounds. All the tiny deserts and candies in this are simply charming!

Happily Ever After is a sweet piece -- 4-3/4 x 3-1/4 that would be cute in a small girl's bedroom. Both patterns are offered as the pre-printed line design on Knotwork cloth, along with two tiny needles. Calling for regular DMC floss... after hosting Teresa here last summer... these don't scare us anymore, and they're FUN to Knot!


Time to Go from Teresa Layman -- click to see more Time to Go
It's Santa getting his reindeer ready for the Big Night! The striking border of evergreens is a delight to knot because of all the solid areas and simple colors. It's just lots of filling in, which goes very fast! I love the bright colors against the dark navy background, and that chubby little Santa guy.

Measuring just 3 x 6, you can see antler and rein detail, even the tiny flowers on the deer blankets! Offered as the design stamped onto the Knotwork cloth, needles are included but you'll need 15 colors of DMC from your stash, and a tight hoop.


The Carrot Conspiracy from Teresa Layman -- click to see more The Carrot Conspiracy
Fat Bunnies dreaming of those waiting carrots! Such a Springtime feel to this 3-1/2 inch square rug, this is another one that will be easy to knot. The leaves are all little solid areas, and the border is super simple... too cute for words!

Needs 11 colors of DMC floss and your Knotting Fingers! Rich greens and bright carrot oranges against that brown (3371) background.

Make this beautiful pocket (optional belt tab on the back) out of vintage brown and ivory herringbone weave, decorated with your exquisite Miniature Knotwork!!!

She includes ALL the fabrics, templates, linings, magnets, everything is organized in there and beautifully presented to you. The finished Knotwork area measures 3 x 4-ish... the entire pocket measures approx 3 x 6 x 1-1/4 inches in size. Just beautiful, this is a very sophisticated-in-style piece... for the more-experienced stitcher!

Charted predominantly with DMC flosses, there are a few hand-dyed tossed in here and there! What treats to stitch, click to see them all, and choose the one you want to do first!

Dragonfly Pendant by Teresa Layman -- click to see more Dragonfly Pendant
Packages include the pendant hardware!!! 1st Question answered! Only 1-1/4 inches in size, so they are GREAT beginner pieces!!! 2nd Question answered! Teresa's words of advice tell us NOT to begin with your very favorite design first, because you're just learning... and the first piece won't be your best.

All these pendant designs are really cute... but they are less than half the size of her regular designs, and offer instant finishing... so they are perfect *First Pieces!* The dragonfly uses a few metallics...

Out of the Everywhere by Teresa Layman -- click to see more Out of the Everywhere
'Where did you come from, baby dear? Out of the everywhere, into the here.' Teresa Layman has brought us the most exquisite birth sampler announcement! It is cross-stitched on 36ct Cream Edinburgh linen in shades of DMC, Weeks and Gentle Art overdyed flosses. There is a special opening in the chart which is reserved for a miniature knotwork piece by Teresa called 'Fairy Godmother.' (Available with this chart, or separately) If you choose 'not to knot!' you can cut out the opening in the linen, hem the edges, and insert a photo of your special baby instead.

The main sampler is worked in blues and aquas, because of the colors of the Fairy Godmother showpiece in the center. If you really, really want more pinks... change the checkerboard blanket and baby's dress in the miniature knotwork portion, and adjust border colors in the sampler. Measuring approx 12 x 17, this piece is elegant and stunning -- we haven't begin to do it justice in our image, in fact. (Our fabric cut is a 'fat quarter yard' chunk -- more economical for you than the 18 x 23 cut!) Definitely at home in a 'decorator' nursery... and treasured forever... wherever its final hanging place will be!

A pastel garden of flowers surrounds this busy beehive... and I love that yellow and butterscotch checkered border that sets it all off!!! Three coordinating pieces, each of the stitched pieces is offered stamped onto the heavy ground muslin.

Complete instructions are provided for 'knotting' and finishing everything... but I'm guessing this is for a bit of an advanced stitcher and seamstress -- (I can knot, but I can't sew, so I'll send mine out for finishing!!!) The stitched areas feature knots done in one stand of floss, to create a soft looks that reminds you of miniature punch needle! Your scissor case will finish approx 2-1/4 x 3-1/2, Needlebook will measure approx 2 x 2-1/2, and the fob is a 1-1/4 x 1/2 inch oval.

Included in the package are the patterns stamped on the fabric, needles, acid-free boards for forms, ivory flannel for needlebook pages, lobster claw clasp for the fob, and instructions for everything! Absolutely exquisite... this will DEFINITELY become a treasured heirloom!!!
