Here they are, out of the box...a family of 7. They're really cute, but the baby seems more like a doll for the sister than a baby for the family. I think the head is too small. Babies have bigger heads, lol.
|Dollhouse dolls in my plastic canvas dollhouse|
I bought these dolls because the smaller size makes them perfect for my pink plastic canvas dollhouse. Modern dollhouse families are taller; the Dad's are about 6 inches tall. The Dad here is 5.5 inches tall.
That half inch really makes a difference with my plastic canvas dollhouse. The ceilings are 7 inches high, and the extra half inch gives the dolls more headroom.
They look cute in the house anyway. My poor needle felted critters were supposed to get this house, but they're just a tad too big for the furniture.
Speaking of furniture, I finally made the bed for the green bedroom.

I made a highchair from another pattern book, to put in the nursery. It's so cute! I love these little pieces of furniture. They are so much fun to stitch, and then put together. They work up fast, too, unlike the dollhouse, which seemed to take forever, lol.
I had fun placing the dolls in the dollhouse.
Gramps is washing up in the bathroom.
Dad is in the kitchen, looking in the fridge, even though dinner is cooking on the stove, lol...just like a real Dad.
The kids are playing with their toys in the attic.
Mom is tending to a polymer bundle baby in the crib while the baby in the highchair calls for attention. Granny tends to the other baby in the cradle.
The pattern for "My Pink Dollhouse" calls for two more pieces of furniture for the livingroom...a lamp and a chair to match the couch. I didn't make them yet, and am not sure if I will, because I don't see how they will fit; it's pretty crowded in there. Of course, the coffee table isn't part of the pattern, but it looks so good there that I hate to take it out.
I really love stitching plastic canvas. I'm so pleased with the way the dollhouse turned out...especially the furniture. The little vintage dolls make it perfect.

I sure wish I knew how to add photos in the proper order. For some reason, this photo of the full house inserted itself after the nursery photo, when it should have been last. I added it last, I don't know why it put itself here, lol.
Well, I had fun with this dollhouse pattern. If anyone has the "My Pink Dollhouse" pattern, I highly recommend it. The house is cute, and the furniture is just adorable. It can be found on Ebay sometimes. It's well worth the time it takes to make, and it would make a great gift.
