Our "homemade" dollhouse furniture - Page 2

post #21 of 31
So awesome!

Keep an eye at crafty shops (often in touristy areas or nice artsy towns) for small woven/loomed fabric samples, often sold as coasters. They make perfect throw rugs. Sometimes they're even made by the artisan's kids! (I bought rugs for my dollhouse this way when I was a kid.)

OK...WOW mama!!! You are awesome. No chance of giving the rest of us hints on the baby furniture huh? I bought my Plan Toys dolls house with all the furniture and accessories from consignment for $60. There is over $300 worth of stuff in there. The only thing missing is the nursery and high chair. I would love to make one for her.

Definitely awesome!!! My girls are still too young to care much about furniture, but you are an inspiration for me when they get older. Where did you get your "blanks" for the dolls? I have been looking for something like that for a while.

How did you make the little foodies? The salad and the hamburgers? And what did you use to color the bowls/plates (they look like ones I've seen unfinished)?
Thank you.

The foods are just felt. It was an easy solution.

And yes, the plates and bowls were bought. I dropped them in boiling water (just for a tiny bit so as not to warp them) to open their pores and then dyed them in a rubbing alcohol-food coloring bath, then sealed them.

Here they are: http://www.achildsdream.com/handwork...g_supplies.htm
Scroll down, you'll see them....Took me FOREVER to find them. They are a bit taller than the Plan Toys doll house dolls so if you have that furniture set (or Ryan's Room), then they likely won't be able to fit in their beds.
