Prams and Beachwear

Hello everyone, 

Firstly I’d like to say a huge thank you to all those lovely people who have placed a link to my prams on their page... THANK YOU!  And huge hugs.

Well I’ve been busy making a classic old style pram and it’s been a bit tricky sorting out the style an dimensions, I didn’t want it to be too small... I have noticed that some old style prams the manufactured sort are way too tiny and the dimensions are all wrong so that when you place your 1/12th scale moma doll next to it, it just looks strange.  I remember a lady I babysat for as a child having one of those huge silver cross prams, I pushed it and I couldn’t see over it even though I was tall for my age, it was a monster and I’m sure a five year old child would have had no problems sitting in it so I wanted my pram to be big like that.  I think I’m getting there, I’ve had a bit of trouble finding things to use to make a proper arm that works on the hood but I may have cracked it, I’ve about three different things to try and I’ll go with what works best.  I love tiny details they make me feel like I’ve achieved something.  I’ll post pictures as soon as I’ve perfected it.  

I’ve also had orders for a tiny buggy, some shopping trolleys, a highchair, another pram and I’ve got a big pushchair to make too, oh and I did some beachwear for a lady who wants to hang it on her washing line, very cute! I’m half way through my orders but I better press on if I want to finish them.

Thank you for all your wonderful comments, I love to read them, they always make me happy.
Big mini hugs
