At the moment, I'm struggling for the time to work on new miniatures for myself for fun. In progress are a couple of 1/24 little wooden cottages (Irish cottage & Scottish cottage) and a 1/12 chocolate shop that I am desperate to work on. But, needs must and for now I'm focusing on baby, home, and working on mini orders for the Etsy shop.
In the meantime, here are two little projects to share with you that were really fun to make for a mini club challenge:
1/144 scale Quilt Bedroom & Shaker Kitchen
Both sold on eBay and sent off to new homes
Paper printed quilts, floor rug, and readable books were received in a 1/4 scale swap. The calico paper is from Jim's" Printables website. The lamp is a metal finding and there is also a ceiling light. On the right side are a shopping bag on the floor and two hanging silhouette plaques. The little plastic bed and chair were found in Toys R Us as furniture in some sort of stuffed bear's tiny dollhouse. The bed was painted black to resemble iron and there are gold beads as finials, very Bedknobs & Broomsticks I thought!
Made mostly with wood, card, and paper. The metal hanging lamp is a finding and those are tiny plastic bottles on the table. The broom is just strands of raffia wrapped around a twig and tied with one strand of embroidery floss. The wooden floor is a thin piece of balsa scored into "planks" with the back of an Exacto knife.
