Whaaat?! Only 10 days left for the Undersized Urbanite contest!
Here’s some of the stuff I’m working on:
Mini sweaters! The gray stack still needs necks added. They are from this lovely tutorial.
I did NOT make these clothes. But, I do have a tip if you need dollhouse clothing: the scrapbooking section of Michaels. The little red top with capris cost $12 at a miniatures shop. But the rest of the pieces cost between $2 and $4 each at Michaels. Craziness.
The hangers, I did make, not too bad for my first attempt. I have a feeling they are going to end up being “good enough,” unfortunately. That’s what I get for procrastinating: non-realistic hangers.
The shoes are also from Michael’s, they are all charms, and they cost about $3 to $4 a pair. I will be painting them today so they look like shoes instead of metal charms.
A stack of blankets made from my favorite t-shirt that had finally worn out. Also working on pillows, and clothing made from the same t-shirt this week.
Cookbooks! It is driving me crazy that the spines are printed up-side-down. So, I can’t even look at them in person right now.
Made a funky credenza from two napkin rings with beads for legs.
And three curtain rods for under $5 from hardware store materials. You can see them on the second floor below. ↓
Still have a long to-do list and only 10 days to do it in!
If you’re into miniatures, do you have any surprise sources like scrapbooking supplies and hardware store? Share your ideas!
