Evalina Rose and her little sister Posy Anna are the main characters of a series of children's stories that I am writing. In this blog I will share the final stages of crafting their half scale house--Honeysuckle Cottage--and the miniature stuff that will make up the settings of their stories.

Violet gets some more clothes

I have been busy making Violet's wardrobe, and shoveling out of 26 inches of snow.

Violet's dressing gown is made of 200/2 silk thread.  I knit it from the neck down and in one piece.

Violet's bathing suit and cap were tricky, as the thread kept breaking. I am wondering if black dye weakens the thread, because the other colers in the same brand are very strong????

I am working on the  to accessories to go with her clothes.
  I will redo my basket tutorial that I used to have on my tutorial page.  I can make very tiny baskets that are actually woven.
The hats are made in the same method as my hat tutorial that is posted bellow.  I will add tiny bows to the hats.
I have placed Violet with some of my 1/4 scale furniture...she is almost 1/4 scale.

Happy Presidents day,


  1. OH!!! Todo es maravilloso .Tan pequeño y tan bien hecho .

  2. Always very beautiful clothes you make. I just love the black set.

  3. Oh, beautiful, Lucy, her wedding dress is amazing and I just love the bathing suit. Interesting thought about the black thread, it might be, I have dark colored embroidery threads that are often thinner too and doesn't give the same coverage on silk gauze as the light colored threads, I am sure it must have something to do with the dyeing process.

  4. Wat geweldig,en zo fijn gebreid.Ziet er heel mooi uit.
