We’re getting ready to have a cosy Christmas – in a 1:12 scale log cabin! Explore this fascinating miniature that was built from scratch, and make gorgeous miniatures to suit any style or period of dolls’ house. We show you how to make hot chocolate and biscuits with polymer clay, how to create rustic greenery to deck the halls and how to sew some 1:12 scale winter pyjamas. Plus, find out how the artist behind the Mouse Market creates intricate festive treats, and what inspires her to make these polymer creations. We’ve also taken a look at all the best upcoming period dramas this winter to inspire you – or at least entertain you when the weather turns! If you’d like to tackle a longer project, we’ve got the first of a three-part patchwork quilt tutorial, too, which will look great in any dolls’ house. With all this, plus the usual news, reviews, fair dates and competitions, look no further for all your miniature inspiration this Christmas!
