A little something...




Once again I have been playing with paper and printer and made some new books and a new box. Guess it´s bit unrealistic that the cartridge label has been used on a peach colored box. Alas...in miniature world everything is possible ;0) 

I´ve also made the screen behind the chair and painted and aged the chair. Still lacking the seat and back... not sure what to do with it.

  1. They're all looking great, and you should think of the box as 'yellowed' with time rather than peach, it looks perfectly fine to me. Would you think about putting in a 'woven' seat and back on the chair using tapestry canvas perhaps? Or left just as it is it could suit a Brocante or an attic.

  2. Hi Norma :0) and thanks you. I was planning on a frenc voven back and linnen fabric on the seat maybe with print. I once saw on a blog how to make french voven seats from embroidery fabric, but have forgotten where. I guess it might have to be a stiff voven fabric to make it look autentic.

  3. Hi Annie, peachy or not - it looks great again!

    What about weaving the seat and back in a chippendale pattern?

    Hugs and kisses, Bea

  5. Hi Bea. Thanks :0) The seat is solid so I think I will only make weave on the back. I had to google Chippendale pattern, lovely but I think french weave will be better.

    Hi Gill. I actually like the peach too... and it goes well with the screen which made a few days ago. It´s a bit too low so I´ll probably try to make a taller one soon...

  6. I think that what you're calling embroidery fabric and I'm calling tapestry canvas is perhaps the same thing. Tapestry canvas has the appearance of fine woven cane in miniature, if you cut and paste this URL you'll see what I mean (it will take you to a page for tapestry supplies)http://www.ozstitch.com.au/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=3&product_id=964 The scale is perfect for 1:12 and it is very firm and strong, although some are stiffer than others.

  7. THANK YOU!!! Norma...that´s exactly what I was thinking of. Now I´ll have to find the danish word for it... :0)

  8. Annie, I love your new inventions, and I see that you have been contaminaged with the box-flu too. I really don´t know this works over the internet, but I can tell that the contamination period is very short ;-0))
    The danish word for this fabric is the very odd word STRAMAJ and therefore it has been the object of several famous poets in DK ;-) (strapudemaj, alene i regnvejr på solitudevej) (translation and rhimes are not possible)
    Love, Sus.
