|Reira learning to sew|
(OOAK Poppy Parker)
First Miniature Monday of 2013! I found this miniature sewing machine at one of those asian gift shops. It's a tad big for a 12inch doll but comes close to scale. That was good enough for me. There are lots of miniatures out there and most are in 1:12 scale, fit for dollhouses. As much as I love those I get really excited when I stumble upon something for my fashion dolls, especially one that I didn't order from the web.
I love how realistic it looks, wood grain and all. The main drawer opens and closes too. The best part is it's actually a music box. When the winding key is wound up, the wheel, needle bar and foot pedal all move in harmony. Since I'm easily amused, I find all this very cool!
