It takes only a few pages to lay out the tools and weaving techniques, which primarily involve plaiting cotton around wire strands.

From a baby’s cradle to a chaise longue, each item is a small masterpiece.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books cover specialized types of furniture for the experienced miniaturist. Smith's step-by-step projects are for traditional-style wicker furniture and accessories for every room in the house. Real wicker material is too large for miniatures, so it must be faked using cotton crochet thread woven on upright wires mounted in a card base. Storey (Creating Decorative Fabrics in 1/12 Scale) is amazingly successful in tackling the difficult problems involved in making realistic miniature upholstered furniture. Her projects for leather or velvet sofas and chairs with bolsters look good enough to sit on. Both these books will find a welcome in public library crafts collections.
