Social Networking for Fashion Doll Lovers
I'm trying to decorate my dollhouse full of Pams, but it's só hard. I love regular dollhouse stuff but it's all made for a 1:12 scale, whereas 6" dolls are, what, 1:10? They're slightly too big for regular dollhouse furniture. It's not impossible, but it's not pretty either.
I own a Pippa kitchen which is okay, but I want more. I'm desperately looking for a fitting bed. If I can't find one soon I swear I'll make one myself. Also I'm looking for pretty sofas for the living room set... Barbie sofas are always so 'pink and plastic', I like it when stuff looks real. That's why I think the Pippa kitchen is just 'okay': it's a typical doll's kitchen and it doesn't look real at all.
Does anyone have any tips? Where do you get your furniture and accessories?
Oh, by the way, there were a bedroom set and a dressing table in the Pamela Love collection, but I've never seen them in stores in the nineties and I haven't come across them on eBay as yet either. I'll keep looking, I SO hope I'll own a genuine Pam bed one day.
Just this afternoon I was whining here that I couldn't find fitting furniture for my dolls' dollhouse, that either everything was too big (Barbie) or too small (1:12 dollhouse scale) unless I could find Pippa and Dawn stuff online. I really didn't want to spend too much money on the stuff and besides, I didn't think the Pippa and Dawn stuff looked too good.
So, I decided to try and make a sofa myself. I gotta say, I've tried before, but it never worked out well. I've tried covering small cardboard boxes in fabric, but those attempts never turned out very well. So when I went out to get my groceries at the supermarket, I was looking around like a magpie, searching for any usable material to build my own sofa, haha.
So, here you go. Made out of sponges, glue and a few pins because the glue didn't hold very well: my own, totally hip, comfortably soft and extremely cheap, sponge sofa.
I couldn't be happier right now!! I'm buying another pack of sponges tomorrow to complete the set!
Crap, now I just found this furniture set for Sarah Louise, who has the exact same body as Pamela.
Should I get it? I'd probably only use the table though, the rest just looks too plastic-y...
I'll think about it. It ends tonight.
Thanks. I've seen them on eBay often, but always more expensive than they were now. And they're sold by the same seller, which saves shipping cost :). At first I thought the lounge set was too pink and doll-ish hehe, but then I realized the authentic Pam furniture is even more pink and doll-ish, so since my sponge sofas aren't holding up very well lol, I decided to just go for it ;)
Even broker than broke now though. :o
I wanna have this bed:
It's 4 inches bigger than Pamela but I figured it's quite possible, and it's so darn pretty!!
