What advice would you give someone starting this project? Prepare to be VERY patient. Also, I did not use regular bias tape called for in the pattern. I customized my versions by cutting my own bias tape from colored batiste (much lighter than purchased bias tape). These are really cute, and are nice for package decorations on gifts, Christmas tree ornaments, and general kitchen decor (cute hung from a 'clothesline with little tiny clothespins as a wall decoration.).

As stated above in the information, I did NOT use purchased bias tape as the pattern suggested, because it was too bulky for the size of the aprons. I cut my own from several coordinating colors of batiste. One could also use lawn or voille. The aprons are what my mother used to say "patience work" because they are smaller than what one is accustomed to sewing normally. Also, I used serger thread, because it is finer than regular thread and doesn't add so much bulk on such a small item. Good luck!!!

Along with sewing I am restoring and decorating a dollhouse. Are these aprons small enough to use in the dollhouse? It's a 1 inch scale.

These aprons are definitely NOT 1:12 scale. I too am a miniaturist, and am in the process of building what is to be my 'last' dollhouse. It is the 'Thornhill' by RealGoodToys. You can follow my progress at http://dottyeb.blogspot.com

to Kcrandall62,: Having dealt with 1:12 inch scale for many years in building and furnishing dollhouses, these aprons are not to scale. Perhaps some of the patterns could be 'copier reduced' and made to work in a scale model house, but some are detailed enough that down sizing them would be very difficult, albeit nearly impossible.

Hello Dotty, I just have to say you are very talented and I had to reach out. I am working in a project and am interested in either purchasing or renting your miniature aprons. If you are interested please let me know and I will email you the details. I look forward to hearing from you. Best, coreybb @ gmail
