Miniature Monday #42: Sewing Machine

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!



Happy Monday!
