Decoupage Chair

Take one normal, basic type of chair and make it look different. I've seen this done beautifully in full size and thought, 'Why not give it a try?'
I printed some pretty paper I found on a website and with Mod Podge I did this!

This is the paper I used, found on The Miniverse

I shrank the design using Photoshop and printed six squares. Tearing the paper doesn't work in miniature so I cut it into lots of tiny, random shapes and used a small brush to paste them down.
I let it dry overnight then sanded very lightly and gave the whole chair a coat of Mod Podge to seal it.
I'm very happy with it.

Miniature Carrier Bags

Just for fun, I made carrier bags this week.
I have no idea where I shall keep them all but as I am finally refilling my displays after all the real life redecorations I shall find homes for a few as I have several shops.

In real life, I am a carrier bag hoarder. Maybe my little people are too.

Party Dress Cushions

Having seen the ballerina cushions for little girls, with their pretty net skirts I just had to make a miniature version or two .... or 10!
With Christmas very close I made a few of the dresses, suitable for the Christmas party!

Which one shall I wear tonight?

Bucket of Pumpkins

With so many things I want to do, the days are too short and I haven't been reading FB posts.
Luckily I did read one from Cecilia Soares showing one of her lovely Halloween displays and knew it would be perfect for my Halloween display.

It's Friday! Have a great weekend.

Christmas Patchwork

Forward thinking is quite an unusual thing for me to do, but I needed a project to take on holiday last month.
Not one for sleeping on a sun lounger all day I packed a zipped pouch with scraps of material, needle, thread and scissors and put together some tiny hexagon patches.
The fabrics were snippets of silver, white and blue fabric left over from a full-size heart wreath I made last year, so without thinking, I had moved on to Christmas mode.

Over the last few days, I have been sewing them together, making small patchwork mats for the Christmas table. Today I finished the last one.

The lovely little Christmas cake was made by Linda Cummings
My summer holiday project is now finished, well in time for Christmas. I suppose I should now start making something in readiness for Easter!
It's almost the weekend, Have a good one,
