Sharing a love of Dolls House Miniatures - and making time for other creative crafts and the garden.

Here Come The Little Ones.....

I've been talking about creating a 'batch' of 1/48th people for ages now - The Thame Dolls House and Miniature Fair in about two  weeks has made it a  matter of some urgency!!  So finally here are pictures of some of the ones that will be on our stand.

The very tiniest dolls are, like their bigger cousins, individually sculpted and poseable so they're all very different little characters.  They also take as long to make, despite being so much smaller, which is why I make so few in comparison to the other scales - fitting a pair of trousers onto a pair of 1/2 inch legs is tricky to say the least.....

I'll have a group of ladies in long frocks as well as more modern outfits of course, and the chaps come in cheery sweaters or 'old boy' shirts with braces and belts so they'll work in a variety of homes. 

I've also had fun with some new characters alongside the policeman, witches and shopkeeper that always seem to find homes very quickly - so this time along with others there's a workman in dungarees and flat cap, a milkman and a couple of tudor peasants.

You may remember the 1/48th stream-side cottage a blog or two ago -  many thanks to everyone who suggested names for it.  I was struggling but have finally decided on 'Dingle Cottage' - The Dingle' being the stream that flows from the ancient mill pond somewhere in Wiltshire.

Thank you for looking

Hi Robin! Your new characters are absolutely fantastic work, not just because of their tiny scale, but also for all the detail you gave them, that's really difficult, so: chapeau for you :D!!
Dingle Cottage is a very good name for the cottage ;)!
I wish you a nice weekend. Hugs, Ilona

Your little characters are absolutely adorable.... I can understand the difficulty in making them and dressing them! You must have the patience of a saint :)
Dingle Cottage has a lovely ring to it and suits the little house very well.
All the best
PS Will you be at Miniatura at the NEC next month?
