How to create a hat shop display cabinet - in miniature!

12 July 2013

Mini-maker Jocelyn has been sharing her expertise in how to create a hat shop display cabinet.

You could adapt her work to suit your own special miniature store – or simply enjoy seeing her detailed step-by-step project work, as we did!

Jocelyn's Mountfield Dollhouse is an online scrapbook of the building and decorating of her dream dollhouse, the Mountfield dolls’ house by the Dolls House Emporium, and some of her other dolls’ houses.

After you’ve gained a little inspiration from her work, why not click through to the main blog page and find out some of her other projects, her likes, dislikes and how she’s gradually developed her Mountfield.
