Custom Blythe Doll Kittie

This is Kittie! She's my new custom Blythe. She started out as Tea For Two Encore Blythe.
 Her face was totally redone by sanding it down and recarving the lips, nose,cheeks. Then her make-up was reapplied.

I only changed one set of pupils. I used an icy by my sister made for me. The rest of the colors are original to the doll.

I made her the little jeans, apron and hat.
Kittie is up for adoption in my Etsy shop.

A House For Blythe Custom 1/6 Playscale Dollhouse

Here are the photos for my 1/6 scale dollhouse I made especially for Blythe dolls that are 12" tall dolls. This is the house I built for my how to book. 
 It measures 23 1/2" tall x 24 1/4" deep x 21 1/2" across.

The switch and battery are hidden in the chimney. They are for the mantel fire and the porch chandelier.

I aged the exterior walls. Then I applied white glue and let it get tacky. Next, a coat of white paint applied in one direction and no over-lapping. 
All the little pots, moss, flower sprays are from Hobby Lobby. Check my "resources" page for links. The pink roses are mulberry paper roses.
 The dirt is coffee grounds. I got the wheelbarrow in the fairy garden department of Hobby Lobby.

I made this chandelier on the porch.

Inside I made the bed, chair, table, mantel, rose painting, little books.

This is a chandelier for lockers. It is perfect for a 1/6 dollhouse. I loved the color.

Embroidery work in progress!
This is Blythe doll Kittie. She's available in my Etsy shop.
The house is available for purchase on Etsy.

Life is an Adventure Custom Trailer Dollhouse

I made a cute little trailer dollhouse called "Life is an Adventure."  This is a completely custom piece. It's 1/12 scale(1 inch scale). Overall length is 16 1/2"(trailer housing is 13") x 8 1/2" wide x 9 3/4" tall.

Wish You Were Here Custom Dollhouse Trailer

"Wish You Were Here" is a trailer dollhouse I made from scratch. It's 1/12 scale(1 inch scale).
Overall length is 22" with the hitch post(trailer housing is 18 1/2") x 10" wide x 12 1/2" tall.
The colors are white and aqua on the exterior. The photos are not picking up the accurate color of the aqua. It has a touch more green in the blue than on the pictures.
I made a template for the form of the camper. And the front and back roofs are very thin veneer woods. This is how you can achieve a curve.
It has a coin cell battery and switch hidden under the birdhouse on the roof.
The little bike comes from Hobby Lobby. I primed it and painted it.

Happy Trails!
