Make your own upholstered chair - online tutorial

5 April 2013

Have you ever considered making your own miniature-scale furniture?
Not just the wooden or plastic frame – but the soft furnishings too?

We spied this amazing tutorial on chair upholstery on a trawl of the net earlier and would love to share it with you.

Kris Compas updates a previous tutorial and shows how straightforward it is to get things moving.

It’s not necessarily easy but if you follow the steps, one by one, it can be within the grasp of most crafters!

If you’re not altogether crafty, then it’s a very good read, and satisfying, too, to see how it’s done in 1:12 scale. There are templates, loads of images and a very helpful commentary to see the project through to the end.

Quite an amazing tutorial, and well worth a look!

A Day at the Races: a mini-project to try!

4 April 2013

We love any excuse to get dressed up and what better reason than Ladies’ Day at the races!

A day at the dolls' house races

As it’s a special occasion why not treat yourself to a glass or two of champagne?

You might have something to celebrate with our dolls, all dressed up to the nines!

If you would like to recreate some of the features in our Ladies’ Day scene, go to “how to” at dollshouseblog.com and make your own Winning Post and a hedge-topped stone-built wall adapted especially for the horses.
