I bought a new home!
No seriously, I did buy a full-size new home this summer, but I also bought a miniature house, too! Now I have to figure out how to furnish it.
The week after we moved in to our newly bought house, there was a neighborhood yard sale and I bought this vintage dollhouse for $16. Sure, it’s a bit banged up and we have to put the door back on, but it’s really charming isn’t it? With two young daughters, I’m sure it’ll have many years of playtime ahead.
Furniture is one thing, but I’m really looking forward to making some soft furnishings in knit and crochet.
Here are some thoughts I had:
- Simple Stockinette Curtains in Lindy Chain
- Rugs (I could do a tiny versions of Stacey’s Swirly Pot Holder or Hannah’s Seed Stitch Rug) in Curio
- Pillows and blankets for the (yet to be made) beds in Alpaca Cloud or Shadow Lace
Do you have any ideas for my new house? Have you ever made dollhouse furnishings? I’d love to knit or crochet sofas and chairs, too. Have any of you done this before? I would love to hear your experiences, pattern sources, or ideas for what I should do. With this dollhouse as a test run, maybe I’ll try to make some new decor for my full-sized house, too!
