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.

    Great for beginners.

    This book is a must for beginners. Instructions are easy to follow. Of course as you get better at making wicker, you will change some of the things that are recommended. Your first piece is almost guaranteed to come out sort of clunky looking. Learn from your mistakes, the next ones will get better and better. It is really fun and as you get better at it, you can embellish in lots of ways. Try different weaves and embellishments. It's all about having fun and creating something one of a kind.
    Tip: I get my floral wire and my waxed thread from the internet, I have to order from the internet since I live to far from any suppliers. Maybe you are more fortunate.
    Have fun!
