Does anyone have experience making rugs? I was thinking either crochet or macrame would be a good way to go with it because I don't think I would have the patience for the tiny cross stitching. Or maybe some felt?
In the past I've done mine with Igolochkoy or Russian Punchneedle and use transfers from this book: Miniature Iron-on Transfer Patterns for Dollhouses, Dolls, and Small Projects.
They work fairly quickly after you've done your first one and gorgeous as they look like real rugs.
If anyone is still looking for a house or your new and didn't get one yet, I got my online from Wayfair.com. I've ordered loads of items from them and everything is superior. The shipping wasn't pricey either. I placed my order on Wednesday night and they were delivered on Thursday afternoon. Quick! The prices are really good also. And some of the houses are Free Shipping right now.
I got this house which is going to be my project house. Regular price $95 and I paid $52.http://www.wayfair.com/Greenleaf-Dollhouses-Fairfield-Dollhouse-Kit-8015-DLL1031.html
and this which is going to be a Gypsy Trailer...which was $45 and I paid $22.http://www.wayfair.com/Greenleaf-Dollhouses-Vintage-Travel-Trailer-Dollhouse-Kit-9311-DLL1010.html
Also I had to make a quick trip to town for supplies, as I'm right in the path of Hurricane Sandy, she is expected to make landfall a few blocks from my house. I went in the Dollar Store and found miniature furniture in the girls toy department. They only had dining room furniture...table, server and hutch but no chairs. But for a dollar I couldn't pass it up. They are a strange red in color but easily hacked. Thought you ladies might be interested...oh and gentlemen if we have any in the group.
