Review by aulsmith
Great ideas for miniature curtains not to mention rods to hang them on and curtain hardware. The author is very aware of the problems of sewing small pieces of fabric and introduces a lot of glue into the process. The only thing I thought was lacking was a discussion of fabric pattern size in the doll house environment, but them, perhaps, that is largely a matter of taste.
