The lure of the Lilliputian

Dear friends, I think I might need an intervention

Parsley and Beet pattern reduced to 50% in size..


If I start talking doll houses-just shoot me.

  3. Very cute! I'm not sure about a house though, maybe an umbrella to keep the Ballarat snow off?

  4. Aww - that's cute! I would like to see her next to Parsley though. How tiny must those limbs be? I thought the original was tricky enough to stuff.

  6. Oh deary me, so absolutely cute! Although a doll house for an elephant..... perhaps you could talk about huts or tee pees.

  9. I think he looks perfect in that little teacup!
    When I think of grown adults into making doll houses and their tiny pieces of furniture, it reminds me of those weird old guys who enjoy miniature train sets...creepy!

  10. Who needs a dolls house when one has a teacup of one's own? Do Parsley and Beet get their own teacups... or do they share a teapot together?

    Not that I want to cause a storm in a teacup...at least not while there's an elephant in there.

    'I say waiter there's a fly in my soup'
    'that's nothing, there's an elephant in my tea.'

  12. We love little here seeing as we are all quite little. Mind you I'm not too keen on sewing tiny things.

  13. have Parsley and Beet been doing rudie things whilst you were away? At least Elephants don't do 'it' like rabbits or it would be more than a doll house you will need!

  14. That is adorable. Maybe a teapot house.

  15. Just give in the the tiny cuteness!

  16. So sweet. I wouldn't worry about houses. Not really needed for your lovely elephants. Just don't get tempted to miniaturise your doll pattern...........

  26. Anything small enough to fit in a teacup is ... by definition ... seriously cute!!

  35. Hey, we ALL need an intervention. Maybe we could get a group rate?? We could check into the Betty Ford Clinic and take the place over! We could have our own crafters' convention for 30 solid days!!!

    Wouldn't that be a blast??!! ;0 Oh, I DO need an intevention...I'll call best girlfriend right now.....

  36. Adorable!!! My version of Parsley (Miranda) saw this and insisted that I get straight down to the photocopying shop to reduce my pattern and even found an old pink cashmere jumper to cut up to use as fabric. She was very insistent and I promised I would do it tomorrow. So no more cute new friends for a couple of days please?

    ReplyDelete
