Victorian Doll & Craft Tutorials, Shabby Chic & Vintage Tutorials, Video's, Pictures & How-To's Pinterest Board




It is no secret that everything and anything Victorian is my passion. I just can't get enough of Victorian dresses, Victorian crafts, Victorian history, and Victorian images. I absolutely LOVE it all. And, I absolutely want to make everything I find.

I look at the beautiful Victorian dresses display on all the museum websites and find myself wanting to make a miniature version for a doll of mine. There are so many beautiful Victorian dresses out there it would be nearly impossible to make them all. That doesn't stop me from dreaming about it.

I also love searching the web for all the wonderful tutorials, patterns, articles, how-to's and printables there are for making Victorian arts and crafts. Some I have tried to make. Some are on my wish list. But, they are all fabulous and I want to make them all.

Again, this is impossible but I can continue to collect them on my Pinterest board. When I dream of Victorian crafts and want to see beautiful Victorian eye candy I can always visit my boards.

I especially love watching video's, reading tutorials, patterns, articles, and how-to's on making Victorian dolls & crafts. I hope you like some of the ones I've found.

Victorian Images, Ephemera and Vintage Images Pinterest Board



I love Victorian images and saving all the Victorian images that I find on different websites that are sharing images in the public domain on my Pinterest board. Here, too I find myself dreaming of beautiful mixed media crafts I could make with them. I wish I could use each and every one of them. Use them all - I can't. Collect them on Pinterest - that I can do.



I just LOVE Victorian images, ephemera and vintage pictures - especially Victorian images that I can use with my mixed media creations and pictures of flowers or little girls and their dolls. Here's a few of my favorites.

Doll Size Mandolin Tutorial by Romona King of Northbrook Designs


I just love handmade accessories for dolls.  So, when Romona King of Northbrook Designs told me she had created another wonderful FREE .pdf tutorial for creating an adorable mandolin on her Northbrook Designs blog I was thrilled.

If you'd like to download Romona's tutorial please click on the picture above or CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

Here's what Romona had to say about her tutorial: I’ve always loved to see dolls doing something, whether it be holding something, a fun pose or sitting on something, and anything else you can think of. Dolls just standing looking straight ahead like mannequins, just seems a shame after all the work that goes into making the doll.

When I was making my collection of Jesters to go into our local museum exhibit, for July/August
2015, I wanted some of them to be holding musical instruments. One of them has a flute, another
has a violin and it seemed just a natural thing that one should have a mandolin.

Small, musical doll instruments are not always easy to find, and if you want them to be a good
quality, you will have to pay for that. So if this is something useful to you and makes it more
affordable, the technique here could be used to make other string instruments for your own dolls. All
it requires is your time to make it.

Please respect Romona's Terms of Use - Feel free to share this tutorial, but please remember to give me credit for the tutorial and pass along my blog link along to others.
