I was completely and shamelessly inspired by http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=381444.0, but I don't have the same skills. Also, I wanted to use one of the box frames I bought years ago.

as a child I used to love making miniature stuff and annoying my mum with cut up bits of cardboard. I still make things, only now I annoy my husband.



Ok, so there's the taster Wink

I began by making a sewing machine fro fimo and cooking it to cure, then painting and leaving it to dry. then I began on the shelves.

here it is with a UK penny for scale, and also sorry for the undried modpodge Wink



I made everything on the shelves, the rolls of fabric, bottles of perfume etc... and also the baskets. those were crochet from upholstery thread using a 0.6mm crochet hook. I made the crochet hook in the backet from a cocktail stick which I whittled using a stanley knife.







the orange flower is from a length of daisy trim.

I love sewing and crochet so I wanted my room to be multi purpose Wink

then the table...



here's the shelves when  put them in last night. mmm. natty.



now for other shots of the room, firstly I need to show this:



my beloved Brother SuperGalaxie2000 in my current sewing/computer/crap storage room. the one I made form fimo is; I think, a fairly faithful recreation. it even has little metal bits and I added a "Q" foot made from jewellry wire, and used some thinner wire to make a needle which doesn't show up on the pictures too well... but I know it's there Wink







I even added a footpedal. not that the foot edal would be connected while the embroidery arm is attatched but hey, artistic license Wink



and in this one you can just see the bead I filled with individual bits of feather...



oh, the stool is made from the lid of a tiny camping size saltpot. It used to be domed, so I bashed the holy poo out of it with a hammer and added a felt cushion.

the notice board is much like the one I own, has jewellry hanging on it, photos of a small blonde child etc...



on that pic you can also see the textured ceiling (sand and acrylic paint) and the light fitting made from fimo with a small glass bead as the bulb...

so. yeah. my dream room. all mine.
