I finished the Flutterbye chair this week, but most of my time has been spent on the Flutterbye wardrobe which is really cute but was quite time-consuming to make.
I am not a big fan of words like 'cute' and 'precious' when it comes to dollshouses - but what I can say? Have you ever seen anything so cute and precious as this little chair? How come my bedroom never looked like this when I was a little girl?
Also in the wardrobe kit are two other pins, which aren't mentioned in the instructions, two incredibly tiny laser-cut clothes hangers, and a length of fine wire. Neither the wire nor the clothes hangers are mentioned in the instructions but I'm assuming the wire is to make the hook for the hanger. I also have artwork for a tiny hatbox (can't remember whether this artwork came with the chairs/table kit or with the wardrobe kit) which isn't mentioned in any of the instructions but I can probably assemble it without. Once again the wardrobe instructions seem to be from a different scale: they recommend that you glue all the artwork onto the piece of card they say is supplied in the kit (it isn't) and cut it out on the card then apply the card/artwork to the kit, which I don't think would work at all in this scale, particularly on the doors where the rose-in-pot artwork is applied on top of the background door artwork.
However, the end result is a gorgeous little wardrobe which I'm very pleased with. I'm surprised at how lost the two weeks worth of Flutterbye kits seem to be in the Fairfield bedroom. It doesn't look like a very big room, but it is about 6" x 7" which in real life would be 12' x 14' which here in the UK would be a master bedroom. Definitely a good size for a kid's room. Once I get my bed, that will fill it up a bit more, and I have kits for a night stand, bookshelf and chest of drawers which I will build and add.
