Dollhouse Miniatures

I love the variety of projects that come my way via my Etsy shop. Some requests take me in a new direction and allow me to create a more diverse store.

One of my interests and challenges is working with miniatures. I've loved making tiny things over the years and find my lighted magnifier is a useful tool to keep handy!

Anyway, here are some of the recent designs I've done.

 A 3d paper hot air balloon 1 1/2" high.
The banner is about 6 1/2" long.
The pennants and dresses are 3/4" high.

 Paper and wire hanging ballerina. Pink tissue paper was used for the dress.

Hanky Dresses Galore!

I made use of some snowy days to get a fresh batch of hanky dresses done. Always fun to have groupings but also appreciate the beauty of each one as well. Some, it is the design of the hanky itself and others are enhanced by exquisite crocheted or tatted edgings. It is impressive how well these delicate works of art survive. Enjoy!
