About Me

I've been into dollhouse miniatures since the early 1990's now and when I realized how much I've learned during that time, I thought I'd make a blog to share my knowledge with others. I'm mostly auto-deduct, but always found help on the Internet and in specific books. The mini-world starts and ends with your own imagination, so let there be no limit. And never say : I CAN'T .... because you can, you just need to try and have the necessary know-how. And that's the main reason why I started this blog, because I wanna share what I know with newbies in the miniature world or anybody else who might be interested in sharing what I've learned so far. So, hopefully, I'll be able to provide some useful hints, tips and tricks for those of you out there just starting with this wonderful hobby

Hi there

A few years ago, I made this sewing room for a collegue at work, at some point we even were some sort of friends, but unfortunately we are no longer neither collegues nor friends, but that's life, let's not worry or talk about that

Anyway, she loves to make her own clothes, it's just a hobby, which is a shame, because she's really good at it, but probably afraid to make that one step out of the stability of her bank job into the independance of being self-employed ..... which is totally understandable, especially being a single mom with a kid to raise

But this post is about that little miniature sewing room I made for her

Here's a view of the entire room, it seems to have everything one might need .... or might might not need, like the cat in the left .... haha πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Once I had put the mannequin in the room, it somehow looked a bit naked :-)) That's when I decided to make a little something to hang on it. Since I'm not so bad at crocheting, I made this little scarf. To give it a nice finish, I simply added a little colored lace all around the edges.

Here's a top view of the tailor's table (the little box of chocolates you see on the far left was a personal touch for Nadine who really likes chocolate), but other than that, there's everything you need to make a nice dress

 My father was a tailor too, that's why I had a good idea on what kind of details I wanted to add to such a room, like this little box on the right, holding all kinds of fabric leftovers 
(it is of course a DIY box )

I made a lot of patterns (for dresses, jackets, etc) out of printies which I put in a small basket I found in the back of a drawer. The perfect addition for a tailor's room

And of course the shelves are well filled with all sorts of fabric

She really loved that little room I made for her, but since we're no longer friends, I just hope that nothing bad happened to it

Just kidding .... πŸ‘πŸ‘

See ya
