Paper Bird






I love making models. There, I’ve said it. I love making dolls, softies, play sets – I totally get miniature railway enthusiasts geekery, because I share it. My Dad’s love of making houses out of cardboard? Yep. Got that too. Oh and my son’s obsession with anything-scale-anything… I understand. We are cut from the same cloth.

I’m going with the flow and not fighting it. Last week I made a bird out of papier-mache and fell instantly in love with the process. So much so that I ordered some silk remnants to make more colourful birds. And because I was in a miniature-induced frenzy I bought some doll props in 1/12th scale. For no reason. With no purpose. And I’m not even sorry, because when I hold that teeny sewing machine in my hand I would defy the biggest smack head to be able to reach the same dizzying high. I mean, LOOK at it. And then, someone gave me this link. It was all over after that.

Hello, my name is Deborah and I’m a nerd.

  1. Wow, it looks so nice. I don’t know how anyone got the patience ( and coordination ) to work with such teeny weeny pieces. My fingers won’t allow me to handle anything that small ( yeah I guess I’m just really clumsy ). I wish I could create such small wonders.


  2. Ok! So the little sewing machine is something to fall for! Its just A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! I love it…
    And the little birdy looks very real, by the way. So real that it might even be abit creepy LOL
    But I love it!
