I pinned this amazing site a while ago that is filled with cute Japanese miniature printables. This site is especially useful if you collect Calico Critters or Sylvanian families as most of the items available for print look similar to those that are included in sets. The site is in Japanese, so use Google translate if you are unfamiliar with the language as I am.
This Friday was a rainy one, so while Makaio napped Nia and I decided to do some of these little minis I’ve had on my to do list for ever. Great rainy day activity for mother and daughter –making dollhouse minis!
The website says they are 1/6 scale, so these would be appropriate for Barbie, momoko, blythe and other 1/6 or playscale dolls. I didn’t really consider the scale, especially since one picture showed a Calico Critter with rhe accessories. I just assumed they were right for them, even though Calico Critters are not 1/6 scale at all. Their furniture is closer to half inch scale, while the figures are close to 1 inch scale. Thankfully at the last minute I decided to downsize them because we only had a few sheets of cardstock left. This resulted in a better size for the critters. I cut and paste the jpg to a word document. I highly recommend downsizing the jpg. Here is what we managed to get together by the end of Makaios nap (he is a walking tornado at this point so these types of things aren’t easy to do around him!). All of these we made together were selected by Nia and will end up with her calico critter collection;
And obviously I had to make some for myself and my calico critter collection! So late Sunday night I produced these;
I still have all these cut, waiting and ready to be assembled;
but I think I’m going to pack them away in my printables box for now. My critters have enough and I really want to get back to working/finishing the creatology dollhouse!!
Thanks for stopping in! I will be back soon!
