Today we have one of the cutest DIY's I think we have done, a Travel Dolls-house Suitcase. A great little project to make for your little ones to take on your travels over the holidays, or like me if you just love cute little things to put on display.
This project was prompted by a sort out of my old toys in my Mums attic. I found my My Little Pony travelling stable and three or four Barbie doll room sets that I made from cardboard boxes when I was young. Does anyone else remember weeks of following along with Blue Peter making dolls furniture out of things like loaf tins, yoghurt pots and sticky back plastic?? No ... Just me? Okay, on with the make...
The bed I made from cardboard, the headboard is large paper clips masking taped together and painted white to create a painted iron look. With bedding sewn from fabrics with petite prints and a little miniature teddy I bought from Etsy a few years ago the room is starting to take shape.
Some more of the accessories were inspired from my craft room, the succulent made from a bead and some felt, the reel of thread and heart in a jar were from some old projects. Be on the look out for small things that may work as accessories. The feature shelves were simply made from kraft card.
P.S. For anyone who is wondering, yes, I totally have a Blue Peter badge!
