I was featured in a treasury on Etsy full of sweet dollhouse delights.

Babies on the Brain

I think (well I hope) I can be forgiven for having babies on the brain. I appreciate pregnancy is often not so interesting to those not directly involved, so I try not to bleat on too much. But I can still use it as an excuse to share some miniature baby cuteness. Of course I can! And I still don't know what I'm having (not planning on finding out either) thus the mix of pink and blue.

Pretty Pastels

I made a couple of real-sized patchwork cushions for my mother-in-law recently. They're to go in a little girl's bedroom whose colour scheme is pastel blue and pink with a dash of yellow, so that's what I did. The front was entirely hand-sewn, I'm still obsessed with hexagons. It's so therapeutic!


I made two in total, using the same fabrics although not set out identically.


The back is blue gingham with an envelope opening.


Hopefully she likes them!

The Tutorial Page

When I am feeling super motivated, I like to make tutorials for making miniature. I keep them all on The Tutorial Page (look to the right for a quick link under my Etsy Shop app) so you can find them all easily. There are lots of fun, little projects, some such as the liquorice tutorial are very suitable for beginners, some like the egg and soldiers tutorial are a little more advanced, but still very achievable with some basic kit. Remember to check out The Tutorial Page from time to time as I add new ones.
