 Early American Doll Series by Gail Wilson (6" round) ... $24.99

This kit is for a miniature 6" round braided rug included in the Early American Doll Series by Gail Wilson.  It can be used in almost any dollhouse, or course.  The fabric included is all prefolded.  There is an assortment of darling tiny prints for you to braid into a wee rug for your daughter, granddaughter, niece, or just for yourself if you're a collector of these fine vintage era replicas.  Or maybe you want to give the kit as a gift to someone special and let them have the fun of braiding it!

Description on the kit:  "The original braided rug in this series is such an important piece for its color, warmth and charm, that this large one in a different size, shape and color scheme was added.  It fits nicely under the round table and chairs.  The cotton fabrics come prefolded and ready to braid.  Although the doll-size rug looks like a real one, its small scale means that special techniques are used to allow it to be made to look just right."

Early American Doll Series (5.5" oval) ... $24.99

This kit is for a miniature small oval braided rug included in the Early American Doll Series by Gail Wilson.  It can be used in almost any dollhouse, or course.  The fabric included is all prefolded.  There is an assortment of darling tiny prints for you to braid into a wee rug for your daughter, granddaughter, niece, or just for yourself if you're a collector of these fine vintage era replicas.  Or maybe you want to give the kit as a gift to someone special and let them have the fun of braiding it!

Description on the kit: "To add color, warmth and charm to this series is this small braided rug about 5.5" in diameter.  The cotton fabrics come prefolded to make the job easier.  Braided rugs are a wonderful example of the old make-do philosophy, because usually the fabrics used were from clothing too worn to wear but with enough life left to cut into strips to braid together.  Although this small rug looks like a real one, its smallness means it has special techniques to allow it to be made just right."
