Miniature Haberdashery Tips/Hints


Fabric Bolts:

  • Wood or Cardboard 1" wide x 1/16th "
  • Small print or plain fabric in assorted colors
  • Cut several pieces of wood or cardboard 2" long.
  • Cut strips of fabric 2 ½" wide X 7" long.
  • Turn in both long edges ¼" and iron flat.
  • Wrap the fabric around the wood or cardboard and glue end


Balls of wool (4 in a pack as you would buy them at a wool shop)

  • For a single ball, cut a straw to about 10mm in length, thread a darning needle with fine wool and neatly thread the yarn through the straw until the straw was suitably covered (neatly and evenly). Tie it around the centre (width) and then made my labels about 2/3 mm in width and glued them around the finished ball of wool. Make  enough to put in a plastic bag and lablel that 4 or 6 in a pack.


Spools of Thread

  • Use the tops of turned toothpicks and wind embroidery thread around.


Button Cards

  • A 3/4" button in 1" scale would be only 1/16" in diameter - many people use
    small beads glued to tiny cards to represent buttons of that size.
    If you wish to use a punch, you will need 1/16" punch to accurately represent a 3/4" button.
    A 1/8" punch would represent a button that is 1.5" - a fairly large button.
    A 1/4" punch would be a 3" button - getting ridiculously large now!!


Laces and ribbon for your fabric section

  • You can cut short lengths of drinking straws and wrap them with ribbon or lace and then put a cardboard round on each end. Run them all through a skewer for a rod and hang just above the fabric counter ready to be pulled down and cut. Make some yardsticks with a sharpie and those thin coffee stirrers.
