What is this?
It is a work in progress.. A fold up dolls house that is going to have fold up furniture.
At the moment it is just in the preliminary stage. The walls, floors and roof are made using cereal packet cardboard, too flimsy for the final product. It needs more furniture, No kitchen or toilet yet. the doors are not finished but i like to share what i have done right now.
The bed is made, the shower, a lounge chair and a dining room table. The stairs are done too.
It all folds up like an old fashioned Christmas tree decoration. The inspiration for this is my idea of portable and post able. (i want to send it overseas). The furniture is attached to the walls using velcro to enable you to move them around. It all joins together using the clips or hooks you find on trousers.
This book called The Perfect Match by Wayne Anderson This is one of my favourite illustrators, I just love his drawings. This particular book is the inspiration for some felt dolls i am making, This is a wedding story and a flip book that can change to over guests and at the back it has a poem and pictures of honoured guests, and the perfect couple that when they come together they form a perfect heart, The Perfect Match.
I have been thinking about this for some time now, and next year a lot of our thoughts are on weddings. My nephew in February, my daughter in April, and my niece in September. Very very busy and so exciting.
