Who doesn't love tiny things?  Seriously, how cute are they?

This swap will be an overload of cute!

You will send 5 tiny items to your partner, the kinds of things they would use to set a scene.  It could be dishes, baskets, flowers, furniture items, pillows, tiny art, light fixtures, rugs, animals, books... you get the idea.  At least 3 of those tiny items must be crafted. Default scale will be 1:12 unless otherwise agreed upon between partners.

Being as these items will be small and light, international shipping should be more manageable as well.

Soooo....scale confuses me a bit.  All that 1:1 and numbers and such...how does one know what size to craft in this kind of situation?  Would all the pieces be one scale?  Should a container size be specified/suggested to ones partner?  Grin

Typical doll house scale is one inch to one foot (1:12)  Other common scales are 1/2 inch to one foot ( 1:24)  and 1/4 inch to one foot (1:48).  Smaller than that you start getting into model railroad and slotcar scales, which can be very tiny.   Shocked

1:24 scale vegetables by me:

If there is a specific scale you are interested in, definitely mention it to your partner.  Let's call the default scale 1:12 unless something different is agreed up on by both partners.  Keep in mind, the smaller it is, the harder it is to make. (Ludi's 1:24 veggies are pretty freaking amazing!)

Thanks for bringing this up, suereal.  I changed the swap description to avoid future confusion.

-->bunny1kenobi, that toilet seat planter on the wall of your garden clubhouse is just darling! and I agree that the 1:24 scale of Ludi's produce is fascinatingly small. I can't wait to see what this swap "produces" (pun)  Grin
