A collection of needlecraft projects which includes over 250 items designed in 1/12 scale to bring charm and realism to dolls' house interiors. Everything is included, from the basic essentials, such as carpets, curtains, bedding and soft furnishings, to the small accessories, such as lampshades, cushions, pictures and ornaments - even a macrame hammock. There are projects for everyone, from simple, effective ideas for the beginner to more challenging miniature "heirlooms" for the experienced stitcher.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most worn out book on my shelf! 27 Oct 2003
I love this book! Great for anyone who enjoys various types of needlework. The projects use various techniques, including knitting, crochet, macrame, cross stitch, embroidery, mini dressmaking, etc. The list of projects is vast - ranging from various floor rugs to suit all eras, to bed hangings and cushions, underwear, jumpers - even instructions for making and upholstering your own furniture. Instructions are clear and in most cases easy to follow, by "experts" in their area. The books is also dotted with wonderful photos showing various items that can be made from the book in delightful room scenes.
definitely an asset to anyone wanting to add personal textile touches to their house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for all to make. 9 Nov 1999
By A Customer
An ideal present for the miniaturist, this book suits all levels of abilities. A good way of saving money by making all your own needle-work for your dolls-house. Very clear and simple instructions using easily obtained supplies. A book that you will use over and over again and one that friends will be forever borrowing!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for dolls house enthisasts 28 Dec 2010
By Lucy
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had been recommended to this book and found it quite difficult to find in bookshops, so I was delighted when I found a copy on here. It covers all kinds of crafts that you can use to make things for a dolls house, including soft furnishings and decorating projects, even tiny paintings! Buying this book will save you lots of money if you can make your own things instead of buying from dolls house shops.
