My dollhouse renovation continues, and probably will for a few more months, but I've been itching to get to the fun part - which is getting all the miniatures ready to fill each room! I've had this tiny, metal sewing machine for many years. It's manufactured by Darice and I would guess you can find the same one in any craft store such as A.C. Moore or Michael's.
To take your own mini sewing machine from drab to fab - follow these simple instructions:
- Make sure the sewing machine is free from any dirt or dust. Remove any dirt with a Q-Tip.
- Coat the entire item with a thin layer of nail polish. I used light pink, but lavender would look great too!
- Allow the sewing machine to dry completely before adding another thick coat of nail polish.
- Once your mini machine is completely dry, you can add details with acrylic paint such as a heart, or little knobs. A toothpick or skewer dipped in paint is perfect for this part.
Thank you for reading & for stopping by!
