THE COLONIAL DOLL-HOUSE: How to Make Your Own. . .

Email this review


Using cardboard cartons for the frame and walls, mat board or balsa wood for furniture, odds and ends for trim, Jellison constructed a six-room, three-floor colonial dollhouse. Along with the kitchen (keeping room), parlor, and two bedrooms, she included a hired girl's room and a weaving room--with a working loom promised for the future. As seen here, the interiors look authentic, from braided rugs and rush chair seats to chamber pots and powder horns. A best buy for doit-yourselfers: clear instructions, low-budget (under $50) materials, and incidental information on Early American family life.
