After the handmade Christmas gifts frenzy, I took some time off from crafting and decided to just enjoy the season. But it didn't last long and I was quickly recruited to make some tiny doll house accessories (aka miniature sewing, which, let me tell you, is harder than making normal sized stuff).
You see, one of my daughter's Christmas gifts was this lovely doll house...
...which is inhabited not exactly by dolls but by this very cure family of rabbits:
My daughter's problem? The house came with very few accessories and the rabbits can not live happily without a minimum of comfort. Truth be told, poor baby bunny had a bed with not even a blanket (and is dressed only in a diaper) and apart from that there were only two couches, a small table and a tea set. Definitely not up to my daughter's standards...
So I was hard pressed to help furnish the house. I started with poor baby bunny and managed to get him a sort of sleeping bag that fits his tiny crib:
Then I continued with the baby's room and added a rug and a matching toy box.
The toy box was the one item my daughter didn't want, but I made it anyway, because I have a feeling that otherwise all those little toys are bound to get lost pretty quickly.
Next I decided to spruce up the hall with a rug, a potted plant (made with an artificial flower that I have no idea where it came from but was stored in my save-for-future-uses box, and a red plastic bottle cap) and a crochet doily in matching red for the small table that came with the house:
It took me a while to make the doily, I guess my fingers are not apt to such delicate work, and it is not perfect (it was supposed to be a flower but ended up slightly wonky), but it works anyway.
And finally, I made some pillows for the couches, with fabric scraps and little pieces of ribbon.
So now the rabbits can rest in their much cozier couches while enjoying an afternoon tea:
Then, because I couldn't resist, I crocheted a small blanket for daddy rabbit, because he seemed the most inclined to spend time in the living room.
And there is the complete set:
Overall, it didn't take me that long to make these accessories. I used fabric, felt and yarn scraps for everything and the main difficulty I had was indeed the small size. Everything (other than the crocheted items) was hand sewn. My daughter is still asking for beds for the three largest rabbits, but I guess they will be sleeping in their couches for some time, with their new pillows and blankets, since mom is now planning some other crafts in regular sizes...
