Magical Miniatures

If you love all things magical and miniature you are in the right place.

About me and my blog

I am a mother of three and work on a market stall. In my free time I love to make magical miniatures. It all started with my gran who spent hours when I was a child teaching me how to make do. This entailed mending and fixing and making things from scratch. My dolls house consisted of cardboard boxes with windows cut out, beautifully decorated and all furniture hand made. We sat for hours making clothes and accessories for my dolls to the envy of my friends that all had the same generic stuff. So thanks gran for the inspiration. I hope you enjoy my art and my blog. Thanks for visiting.

Pickled Nanna

On a slightly different theme to my normal one I am making a range of pickled grandmas to be sold on a haberdashery stall. Each one will sew or knit in different scenes within a jar.
My first will be a knitting grandma. I have made her head from a polystyrene ball, painted it and made a wire frame body. I have made some wire rimmed spectacles for her too.
Also I have made her knitting from two dress making pins and some wool. It was hard casting on to pins!!!
