It’s not a yellow polka dot bikini, but it’s definitely itsy bitsy, teenie weenie.
It might be difficult to judge the scale based on that photo, but I can tell you that this little guy is 2 3/4″ tall by 3 1/4″ wide. The knobs appear to be beads that are just glued on.
Here, maybe this photo gives you a better idea of the size.
I believe this probably qualifies as 1″ scale, if you are familiar with such terms (as in 1′ is reduced to 1″). Way smaller than yesterday’s mini.
Now you may have thought that I should just leave this one alone, but you know me better than that by now, right? Of course I painted it!
And of course I found some itsy bitsy transfers to add to it.
This is a mash up of transfers from I.O.D. , re.design with prima, and Tim Holtz.
I had the little tool tote and the bucket in my stash of dollhouse décor from back in the day when I had a pretty fabulous dollhouse (you can see it here). I ended up sending that dollhouse out to my in-law’s place because I didn’t have a good spot for it, but I hung onto a handful of little things.
The tool tote was in the attic in my dollhouse …
But clearly it needed a coat of paint and a transfer as well.
Both the dresser and the tote are painted in Dixie Belle’s Drop Cloth.
The bee transfer on the tote is part of a re.design with prima knob transfer with some bits trimmed away.
Naturally, I had to line the drawers with some pretty paper as well.
I had to dig to find some scrapbook paper with a small enough floral design to look appropriate in these drawers, and that floral paper was perfect.
Seriously you guys, how frickin’ adorable is this thing? I can hardly stand it.
I’m definitely going to have to hang onto this one for now.
What do you think?
