About Me

My photo
IMAGINATION IS THE EYE OF THE SOUL Joseph Joubert. I am a mother of four...I still remember the smile that refused to go away for weeks after our daughters birth. To have a little girl appear after three sons seemed such a miracle. I have always enjoyed My Doll World, sharing it with Lara when she was little. Today I design knitted outfits for miniature dolls and enjoy every minute of it. The fact that the outfits are removable is what makes it so special for me. Using ever finer threads has opened so many MINIATURE DESIGN opportunities.

Tutorials 1:12th Scale

I would like to see how many of you out there would like to see a tutorial on how I made these Christmas Tree Skirts. 

One could also make a "rug" for a little girl or boys room.
Also trim the bottom of a dress or the front of a jacket!

Just pop a comment telling me if you would like to know!

Having rounded corners makes it much easier when it comes to the finishing for the crochet work.
I used a variegated thread for a few of the edgings

For this project you do need a SEWING MACHINE.
One could always to the project with a friend who does have a sewing machine!


1.    100% Cotton quilting fabric preferably with a small     
       design to keep to the 1:12 scale

2.    Quilting double sided applique paper
       used to bond two pieces of fabric together

3.    100% Cotton Sewing thread to match the main colour you have chosen.
       This you will use on your sewing machine

4.    0.5 crochet hook

5.    4mm Silk ribbon or Bunka

5.    Mettler No 50 100% cotton sewing thread, two colours

6.    A very fine No 12 Hand Applique sewing needle

7.    A white quilting pencil

Looking forward to hearing from you!


  1. Thank you for this. I love tutorials and this one is good. It can serve as a border to a bedspread as well.

  2. I love it when mini minds get together, you are right Drora an edging for a spread would work very well!
    It could also be lightly quilted.
    You have got my mind working overtime.
    Thanks Sharon

  3. Thanks for the tutorials.
    Bye Faby

  4. Sharon, this isn't the tutorial or do I misunderstand. It is only the supply list, isn't it? (My english is worse)
    I would love to learn more. I want to know how you crochet the edgings.

  5. Anna, it is not the tutorial, your English is fine.
    I wanted to see if people would like me to do it, thought giving you the supply list was a good place to start.
    I have been thinking it could also be good for a crib edging....

    I need to get my sewing machine out so I can do the tutorial for you all, as well as get a friend to take photographs of the methods while I am working.

  6. Nice to read your answer, Sharon.
    Thank you for your love to share with us. I know its a laborious work to make a tutorial ...You are nobel.

    I also love cushions with such a nice edging around
