I think I've mentioned (and shown you guys) that I do some sewing. And part of what got me into miniatures in the first place was sewing for my dolls. I think I also mentioned I've been doing that from an early age. Like nine or ten? Well a long time ago. We won't talk about how long, it makes me feel old. I don't need to feel old(er).
So anyway, sewing. I'm still working on the frame for the dollhouse though with some wood glue and clamps it's progressing well enough. But I wanted to actually accomplish something this weekend.
|So it's progressing...a little bit anyway.|
So I talked before about the master bedroom and the colors I want to use. I did a little research about Victorian bedrooms and bedding and apparently the upper class bedrooms were fairly ornate.
Here's the base of the bed I started out with. It's actually a canopied four poster but for our purposes the base will be fine.
|See ivory satin brocade, glued down. Very basic.|
|Slightly better I think.|
I also decided that the bed needed some throw pillows so I dug out some other ribbon trim and a few fabric roses. I'll eventually work on a few regular pillows for the bed with some big fancy shams with lace so the bolster pillow goes in front with the throw pillows.
But I think this is pretty good for now.
|Not a bad picture...|
|This is a little better.|
