Making Miniatures

Hello Fellow Crafters

Today I'm sharing something a little different, a miniature 1/12th scale floral scroll hearth rug which I made for my dad.  He is in the middle of decorating his second dolls house.  Last time I made him some miniature stitched pieces, you can see those here.

This isn't stitched I'm not sure if the technique has a name but I did take some work in progress photos to help show the process.

After tracing the design on to the webbing and iron it on to the material I took the bunka threads and pulled the ends so they unravel.  I used Dovecraft dries clear glue to stick the bunka on to the design.

The technique was tricky to start with but once I got the hang of it and used on light pressure to stick the bunka in place it become quite easy.

I managed to complete it in just one afternoon. 

Creative Blessings.  x
