Local Gameing Store - L & J Hobbies AKA FamilyHobbyShops

For those of you who did not know that the L & J Hobbies store had a new owner (as of 4 years ago) it is now owned by Travis and his kids and wife can be randomly found working there.  I did not venture in there thinking it was "just" a train store, well a few months ago I found their website.  It is more then "just" a train store.  It has trains, planes and 40K!!!!!!!


Travis has at least 8 different tables he can set up with different themes from lava world to farmland world, blue world (ice, water, egg) and more!  Thursday night is 40K night and he is open late.  My husband and I have been wandering down there on Thursdays to see what is going on.  This store also has my terrain for sale and most of the pieces painted up for play, so if you would like to save on shipping and try before you buy, head on down to the Family Hobby Shops in Portage.  Their website is http://www.familyhobbyshops.com/

My husband has been designing some pieces of terrain so look for it soon!  (Not sure if it will be posted here on "Amy's Crazy Crafts" or our business website of KABCNCCreations.)

 A building I made to show different windows.  I painted it with Travis's airbrush.


Trains

Flat pack dice tower




Travis figured out how to flat pack a dice tower (add rubber bands instead of glue!) To the left of the dice tower is a super cool piece of very detailed terrain Travis just finished.

How to make a doll mattress

Easy mattress for doll furniture

Need to know size of mattress needed:
Height =
Width =
Thickness =
Seam Allowance =

Layout above with your dimensions.
Sew (wrong sides together) the corners together (Red double corner arrows), should look like you are sewing a 45 degree angle from the top.
Now the mattress will look like a box with a lid.
With wrong sides together sew the bottom to the sides, leave a hole for stuffing.
Turn right side out.
Stuff mattress.
Sew hole shut.
Put sewn hole in back or on bottom of project.
Optional: can add yarn ties to mattress if too fluffy or if you like the old fashion look, trim yarn tails.


Other mattress ideas:
Sponges if you can find them big enough (Do not get the wet ones)


Towels/wash cloths (Folded up)

Foam from the craft store cut to fit (do not have a picture of this) Use a electric knife to cut it easy.

Barn Supports - Question

I had a question on the extra long pieces that come with the barn supports.

I hope this explains them:
The roof has four, two on each side, a plain one is glued between the one with notches that go inside the holes in the loft (see below).  (See black arrows.)

 The loft has four also, this keeps the loft on top of the main floor. Notice how each side has two holes in the floor, this is where the roof attaches from above and why the extra spacers are needed.


If you have more questions let me know.

6 inch doll furniture Mini American Girl Doll

The last few weekends I have been working on 6.5 inch doll furniture for my Mini American Girl Doll. 

 Here are some pictures: 

This furniture is at the 1 inch scale. I thought about it and her furniture should really be at the 2 inch scale due to her being about half the height of a "normal human" but I looked at AG furniture and they scale them as if the doll were an adult. Plus if I scaled it "correctly" everything would look way too big with a lot of wasted space. 

My first set, the bookcase was too deep and so was the desk. I did not like the closet so I redesigned it. I sewed the bed mattress, pillow and couch cushions, they are a little fluffy.

Here are some beds I have made:
I had to make one with my name on it :)



This one I made for the doll Kevin 3D printed me, it is a Snowman 7" doll.  I named the doll "Snow" it is a mini doll of one I am writing about, in a book, I hope to publish someday.




Here was a fun one I was playing with.





Bedroom Set:

 This is the redesigned bedroom set. The dresser drawers really do open, the closet has dresses, a coat and shoes in it. The drawer to the side table does not open (I figured it was too small to put anything in anyways.)  I often have this set listed on Etsy, Zibbet and Ebay for sale, if you want a set to put together.





 Closet I made. The door should have a mirror on it when finished.


  The newly designed desk. The other one was way too deep. I like this one much better.




 Living Room:

 All the Living Room Pieces I have made:



The Simple Living Room Set:

 Showing the height of the new bookcase.
 
The old simple living room set painted. (I used sponges for the couch cushions.)



 I made a futon for the dolls. I found a sponge that almost fits! 



 Having fun with some pieces I had.
 


 The kitchen set:

 The cupboard, stove and fridge all open. I even made pots, pans, plates, spoons, spatulas, bowls and cups to put in them. (I forgot to add the handles to the fridge and cupboards)



  How big the doll is:
