Today I would like to present you a new dollhouse miniature petit point pattern for an area rug - Bati Anadolu. This is a reproduction of an antique Turkish rug, 15th century.
This design can make a beautiful pillow in real size if stitched on 22 canvas.
The dragon motifs, that you can see in the field of the rug, were originated in the Far East. They represent a mythological creature believed to be the master of air and water. It is also the guard of the tree of life.
The pattern was recreated from a survived piece of an actual rug, depicted on this image:
22 canvas - 14.59" x 13.50" (37,06 x 34,29 cm)
40 count silk gauze - 8.03" x 7.42" (20,38 x 18,86 cm)
50 count silk gauze - 6.42" x 5.94" (16,31 x 15,09 cm)
There are also other patterns available based on that design:

The pattern is charted for stitching with DMC. However, I would advise to stitch with Gloriana silk, or another over dyed silk of your choice to give a rug that antique worn look.
