I just love my miniprint fabrics~ at it again, after craft things have been stashed for a good while, and I’ve been feeding ao3 and made uchiha calendar stuff instead. While I do love my crafting, space and wood dust in the family’s apartment isn’t always working out :p ….also, I’m somehow between sewing machines t.t
If you like miniatures and need something to do, Windsor castle has both a little movie about it, then there are photos of every room. AND there are photos of every individual item of each room!
So much to look at!
The books! 170 authors contributed. Just look at this individual item, by sir Arthur Conan Doyle!
Have some fun, and get lost in far too many gorgeous artisan miniatures from the early 1920s!
Tobirama’s favourite food is locally sourced grilled freshwater fish.
I had the clay out anyway :3
(considering putting together miniature item kits in the future ^^)
Some WIP stuff. First image making the sliding rails. I think it’ll be too bulky with two doors as I’d have to add so much to the depth, so I’m considering only one. But. Aesthetics vs practicality vs what feels right xp
The other images is wall making and shelves. The foamboards are nice to work with, buuuuut can’t handle clamping well without structural integrity going byebyyyyyye xp So, string it was.
It’s moving forward~ those shelves need doors, though, and I need to seriously get a start on the clutter.
Oh noes! Tobirama’s office has been invaded by a Giant Cat!
Quilt and pillow need to be smaller, probably sadly no reversible quilt for better shaping, and the corners of the futon need its stitches, but otherwise? Acceptable :3
Yessssss~ it does look more like a miniature thing with the small pattern print, rather than just tiny sewn thing :3
Yes, that seems nicely tiny. Looking forward to working on the proper textiles.
(Source to spoonflower in post source, for those who want to buy their own fabric for tiny reasons, a fat quarter has all four on it :3)
Tiny tansu with tiny hinges finished, and my shaky hands trying to demonstrate it :‘3
More boxes, more boxes~
Seems like it will function decently :3 a few more adjustments to the sliding ones to make them catch less.
Futon mockup in preparation for the proper fabric. Went by this YouTube video, and had to run the corner stitch and knots at .25 speed five times before understanding what even what x'3 when I finally understood what to do and how it shaped the corner, I was instantly fond of it. Shall need to use in other circumstances too.
The cotton I got, I realised was made into rip-off sections I shall need to avoid for this use <.<
The size differences make the material behaviours so so different. Getting both plushiness and roll-up ability might be a challenge.
I think I want it wider, too. The proportions doesn’t seem quite harmonious.
I long to see if the fabric will have tiny enough pattern it’ll look miniature rather than chunky small thing made big big materials.
Sometimes little adjustments must be put in place to make things fit better, or be sturdier.
It’s actually getting somewhere :‘3
Spent almost 3h adjusting for the measure mistake on the fusuma *groans* but it’s done, and what is patience, let’s glue the still ones where they go, and worry about the two sliding ones later~
I needed a set of Japanese inspired patterns for a miniature project, and awaiting the actual fabric from spoonflower to show up, I made them available in my redbubble shop :3 Can I have them all? :’3
The first three patterns are based on old Japanese pattern styles (source)
Tachiwaki / Tatewaki (Rising Steam)
Karakusa (Winding Plant)
Seigaiha (Blue Ocean Waves)
The last is more inspired by a mix of the traditional ocean wave, and Hokusai’s famous wave art.
….yes. Yes I sat down and designed fabric patterns and have now placed the order for them to be printed, and hopefully they will work well as fabric for the zabuton and futon.
I like them a lot on so many of the products, but I do not need more mugs :’3
