Look at what's inside issue 207, August 2015
Wednesday, July 1, 2015
The sun is out and the miniatures are bright! We step outside this month to bring you the best miniatures and projects for long, hot days and relaxing evenings in the dolls’ house. We’ve stepped inside a 1:12 scale garden centre and we show you how to sew a boho skirt. Plus, you can knit a stunning beaded picnic blanket and make a complete set of picnic food out of polymer clay, which is perfect for a Victorian lunch, or the modern day. One of this summer’s biggest events is the Fashion on the Ration exhibition at the Imperial War Museum; we’ve interviewed the curator to find out the ins and outs of WWII fashion. We’ve also got expert tips on etiquette for taking tea throughout history, we show you how to reupholster a rocking chair, and how to make a bird of paradise plant. With much more besides, including great prizes to win and tips on how to use Facebook to promote your miniatures – we’ve packed a lot in!
Plus - don't forget, you can enter the competitions for the issue here!
