Meanwhile, I finished stitching the interior of the plastic canvas dollhouse I'm curretly making. The pattern is called "My Pink Dollhouse", and it's for a 6 room, 3 story dollhouse. I did all 30 of the interior pieces; here they are:
I'm using a big gift box from the dollar store to hold most of the pieces (I put a ful sized kleenex box next to it to show scale). I love those dollar store gift boxes; they're perfect for storing craft items. I have 4 of them, and want more, lol. They'd actually make great room boxes too; they're already "wallpapered", in tiny patterns.
I've found soooo many great websites for making my own dollhouse miniatures. My favorites are the trash to treasure websites, where they show how to use regular household items, like broken jewelry, straws, etc., to make miniatures. Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Creating Dollhouse Miniatures
I also found some terrific youtue tutorials:
I can't wait to try these out.
I also found a wonderful book called Making Dollhouse Miniatures with Polymer Clay, by Sue Heaser. It's the best Polymer book I've ever seen, and I'm so excited because it even shows how to make an old fashioned kitchen, complete with woodstove and country sink! I can't wait until i have all of the supplies I need to try this.
