Dolls House Do-It-Yourself Curtains

Dolls House Do-It-Yourself Curtains

Step-by-step Instructions for over 25 projects. Imagine a home without curtains - what a bleak, unloved place it would seem.

The same could surely be said about a dolls' house, but miniature curtains can transform tiny rooms in all kinds of ways. Cheerful cottons printed with rosebuds, and dainty net curtains will add a soft, feminine touch to a bedroom; glossy silks with festoons and fringe will make a miniature Georgian parlour look fit for a king; and a striped roller blind in a bathroom window will make the room look cared for and lived in.

This book will show you how to make beautiful miniature curtains for your dolls' house. The  tools and materials used for the projects are all widely available and you will already have many in your home. The Essential Techniques section guides you through the steps of making and draping tiny curtains so that they hang perfectly and you avoid the 'flying in the wind' look that so often spoils dolls' house curtains. The projects give detailed instructions for every popular type of curtain that has been developed through the ages, and there are plenty of tips and advice on how to choose the right style and materials for a doll's house of a particular historical period. The projects also include variations, giving you a wide choice of styles to adapt to your own particular dolls' house. 

Miniature sewing is a delightful hobby and the projects in this book are easily achievable even by a beginner. 64 pages. Author: Sue Heaser. This book has been sold.
