My First Dolly

This is my first attempt at a dolly for my house.  I used a free pattern by Mimi Kirchner and scaled it down by over 40%!  I also used cloth instead of felt, although I think felt may have been easier.

Whilst searching for Mimi's pattern I came across a fantastic blog - Needlebook and Tiny handmade and was further inspired, Claire's dolls are amazing! 

She's a little cobbled together ( I'm not a sewer) and I think I'd change the pattern next time and have a few less seams, but I hope that all adds to the charm :)
                                                   I added a drawn on stocking seam

Hello and welcome to a few new faces!
I've been busy making miniature photo frames and to make them extra special I used these old photos of my Dad in approx 1934/35 and my Nanna and Grandad's wedding in 1929 x
I think they look very at home on the sideboard :)

I made these curtains today and added a frilly pelmet, my Mum's house had cream box pelmets
so not sure whether to change this, anyway...Happy New Year!!
