Dollhouse Pushchairs 1/12th scale

Hello my lovely mini friends…

Well first the good news, my doggy is much, much better thanks to all those well-wishers YAY! :)

Now for the pushchairs… I’m going to stop making this style soon (well it will move into my budget collection) the reason for this is as time goes on, you find better ways to do things, and improvements are born etc and also, I just get bored easily so I need a change.  These pushchairs are at an affordable price and available by emailing me or going to ebay (where I shall pop them up for sale tomorrow or maybe the next day lol). 

Another decision I have made is that I’m not going to take more than around four bespoke orders per year, this will leave me the freedom to create what is in my heart and thus lead to much better creations and also between you and me, I like to make new and different things rather than copy my own creations over and over, another reason why I’m putting this style of pushchair to bed lol.

I decided to make this batch of pushchairs in bright colours and I added a little hearts print just to be different.  They all have the usual features, shaped handle, shopping tray, moving wheels, full working harness and the hood can fold back too.  The pictures are below. 

The present project on the work table is a little Peter Rabbit buggy which I’m making a sun canopy for.  Once this project is complete I have a list of others to get started and one of them is a modern pushchair that I keep going to start but never get round to lol.  I found a few new materials that will work really well for what I want so I’m going to put them to good use.  I also have a twin tandem pushchair on the table, it’s got reclining seat backs and moving foot rests but it’s got a long way to go before it’ll be finished.  If only I could be cloned eh!

As always thank you for your lovely messages, you always make me smile.
Till next time, big mini hugs

A Suitcase and some Cribs

Hello my lovely mini friends…
It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to post and I blame this mainly on us actually having a summer lol.  Yes I’m guilty of having some fun time in the glorious weather, it may have been a bit rainy in-between but over all we’ve had some hot hot sun.  Also, we’ve a poorly doggie at the moment and so much of my time has been taken over caring for him, poor thing he’s happy and still all bright eyed but he’s got IBD that’s the equivalent to crohn’s in a human, so he’s been quite poorly. 

Anyhooo, I’ve managed a couple of mini makes, I finally finished my first opening suitcase, I decided I’d make lots of changes to the next one I make, including adding wheels and a fold away handle but for now this one will become part of my personal dolls house collection as it’s not quite good enough to sell.

I also made a couple of little cribs with an antique styling to them, a little different than my normal mini makes but they were very quick and easy to make.  I’ll be placing one up for sale here and the other will go up for sale in my Etsy shop.

I’m in the process of making pushchairs but with everything that I have on right now I have no idea how long it will take me to finish them. 

Hopefully things will get back to normal in the next couple of months and I’ll be back to making my minis full time again.
Big mini hugs
