Miniature Kitchen Accessories For Your Doll House

Miniature kitchen accessories for your doll house! Miniature Aprons, pot holders, oven gloves, dinner napkins and towels for the kitchen in your doll house

APRON

The apron that I will be describing is the type that ties behind the waist and has a band around the back of the neck. It consists of a top and skirt and no back.

Outline the shapr of the apron to resemble the adult version, with fabric glue, in any colour or design of fabric of your choice. Remember to use the thinnest possible fabric. The reason that I advise you to use fabric glue to outline the apron is so that you can cut out the apron once the glue is dry and this will prevent the fabric from fraying and will also save you the time and effort of having to sew all the edges.

Once you have cut up the apron to these measurements:

Top of Apron: 2.5cm

Waist: 3 cm

Botton of apron (skirt): 5 cms

The top of the apron will resemble an "n" shape with the two sides extending to create the skirt.

Please remember to cut all edges in a rounded fashion, so as to create rounded edges.

All miniatures must as far as possible resemble the normal item in looks, just in a miniature size.

Finish the apron off by sticking an end each of 3 mm ribbon in a colour to match your apron, on each end of the top of the ribbon, this will create the band that will go behind the neck.



Stick a lenght of ribbon along the waist and extended on each side so that it can tie behind the waist.

If you wish you can make a pocket by once again, gluing the outline of the pocket, wait for it dry completely before cutting out the pocket in a "u" shape, remembering to round off the edges. The pocket measures: 2 cms along the top. If you wish you may stick a length of ribbon or thin lace along the top of the pocket. Stick the pocket down along 3 sides leaving the top unglued so as to leave it open.

POT HOLDERS

Outline a piece of fabric in a colour and design of your choice (to either match the apron or in a contrasting colour), with the fabric glue in a square shape measuring 2cm all round remebering to round off all edges to match a normal pot holder. Cut out the pot holder once the glue has dried, to prevent the edges from fraying and to save you the time and effort of having to stitch in all the edges. Take a few strands of cotton in a contrasting colour and glue the two edges along the underside of one edge of the pot holder, so as to form a loop, to enable the pot holder to be hung.

OVEN GLOVE

Outline a piece of fabric in a colour and design of your choice (to either match the apron and pot holder or in a contrasting colour), with the fabric glue, in a straight line rounded off at each end to resemble the hand part as in a normal oven glove. The length of the oven glove should be 7 cm. Cut out the oven gloves once the glue has dried, to prevent the edges from fraying and to save you the time and effort of having to stitch in all the edges.

Take a few strands of cotton in a contrasting colour and glue the two edges along the underside of the oven glove in the centre. This will create a loop which will then enable the oven glove to be hung up.

DINNER NAPKINS

Outline thin white muslin in 1 inch squares with the fabric glue. Once the glue has dried cut out the squares in the centre of the glue line, to prevent the edges from fraying and to save you the time and effort of having to stitch in all the edges. Fold the square to form a triangle, and fold it once again to to form another triangle and glue down the two edges.

TOWELS

Use cheap terry cloth diapers or terry cloth sold by the metres. Buy the thinnest quality available.

Once again, outline the terry cloth with the fabric glue and once the glue has dried cut out the rectangle shape in the centre of the glue line, to prevent the edges from fraying and to save you the time and effort of having to stitch in all the edges.

The towel must be cut in a rectangular shape measuring:6cm long by 3 cm wide. Either edge both ends with thin lace in a colour of your choice. Or you can stick a piece of lace with thin ribbon stuck in the centre of the lace, to the bottom of the towel. About 2 cm from the edge.

hope you have a wonderful time making your miniatures. Enjoy and remember Miniatures are addictive. Beware: you have been warned. :o)
