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's French Dress

I have not posted anything for a while, so I thought that I would show you Violet's new dress and her baby's bassinet. 
 I am not done with either, but I like to show things in progress.  I am going to add some more embroidery to the hem line and bodice of the dress.  The bassinet will get some flowers added to the rim and a pillow. 
 This project is growing in some interesting ways and I will share them in the future. 

I decided to join the Marie Antoinette craze.

I made the bassinet in the same manner as described in my Basket Tutorial. I made a special form to work on , and I am very happy with the results.

Have a great week,
