Panda Rocker and The Candy House

I'm still happily creating this weekend,  but I'm taking a small break for a blog post.  I just finished building a Panda Bear Rocker for a project that Kat from http://minikatslittlethoughts.blogspot.com/ is creating for a friend .  You can read about this roombox for a Grandma in honor of her sweet Grand-daughter on Kat's blog.  I wanted to help when Kat first posted, but I couldn't think what I could contribute.  Then I thought of my needle felting and decided to try to make a Panda rocker like one Kat had shown us when she was looking for ideas for the roombox.   I think it turned out pretty close.  Here's a picture of it with a Heidi Ott 1/12th scale doll beside it for scale. I hope it works okay Kat- thank you for allowing me to try my hand at making him :)

I've also done some more work on The Candy House this weekend.  Here's more progress on the right side of the house and a close up of the birdhouse painted.  I'm getting closer to finishing the outside :)  Back to work I go.....see you later :)

I don't have the words to express how wonderful that panda rocker is!!! You never cease to amaze me with your creativity and talent! The candy house is fantastic!

Kim said...

Lataina- thank you ♥ I'm looking forward to the final reveal of Kat's project also- it's going to be beautiful!

Cia- thank you!! The rocker was so fun to make- I was thinking about trying some more needle felting this small for the playroom in The Candy House :)

De- thank you!!

Kim- thank you!! You are so sweet- I hope your week is full of minis and sunny skies ♥

Katie- thank you!! My birdhouse is not near as perfect to scale or detailed as yours though- I should have commissioned you to make this one! It turned out a little too big for 1/12th scale- but I'm not worrying about it because the doll that lives in The Candy House is a tiny bit large for the scale too :)

Kat- I'm so glad you like him and I hope you're able to use him when you see him in person- I always worry if I get the scale right :) It was so much fun to make- so thank you again!

Eileen- thank you :)

Pikko- thank you so much!!

Julia- thank you! If we ever get to meet in person you can show me how to improve my sewing skills and I will show you everything I know about minis :)
