The kitchen in our dollhouse has taken many forms over the years.
This was the first version. This was back in 2012, not long after
Our first 2 dolls, Grace and Emma, came to live with us.
Then my husband helped me construct this stove.
The addition of the stove was a huge improvement.
Sophie was 8 and she loved her doll kitchen.
After the new dollhouse was built, the kitchen was updated again.
Most recently, the kitchen looked like this.
A few months ago I found the maple drop-leaf table.
More recently, I found the wood cabinet in the center.
This wood addition made me think about redoing
our kitchen in a more traditional style.
Our Molly is the one who spends most of her time
in the kitchen, so I looked at 1940's kitchen styles.
This is actually from the 1930's, but I loved it.
Then I found this image of a 1940's stove.
AND, here is our stove now.
The wood cabinet that started all this.
I love my egg basket!!
I made these eggs from polymer clay.
I had purchased this fabric months ago, just because I loved it.
Ever since, I wondered what I would use it for.
When I rummaged through my fabric and saw it, I knew!
These butterflies would be for the new kitchen.
A matching dish towel.
I made this rug out of some coordinating fabric.
I will have a tutorial for this rug at the bottom of this post.
Our new kitchen!
For the rug I cut a piece of fabric about 12 inches long
and 8 inches wide. I turned down a
single fold and hemmed the long sides.
Then I lay my fabric on a hard surface and
using a pin I start to scrape at the rough edge.
Just continue pulling out strands of fabric until you have a fringe.
I used this same technique to make my dish towel.
