Mini Antique Mannequins

I have searching for an antique mannequin for a couple of years. They are hard to find and very expensive when they are found.

I also have read many tutorials on how to make your own but never thought that I could pull it off until this past weekend. I started with a great pattern that I found on Etsy from Tracy Bell and you can buy it here.  The instructions are easy to follow and the results are amazing. I started with a nice linen in a medium taupe color since I thought it would look vintage and classic.
Pattern was easy to read and after very few steps of a little sewing and a little stuffing, I was left with this..
I used a candle stick that I had and no longer used for the base and added a few of my recycled jewelry items. It was so easy, I made a second one and intend to use both of them to display my jewelry as well be able to take better photos.
I am so pleased with the results.
I now have my own Jewelry shop in my home!
Lovely and Professional looking!
I can't wait to make more!
Enjoy!

  3. Those are so cute! I saw some gorgeous full size vintage looking dress forms in HomeGoods today for $60, I didn't think that was a bad price but I haven't really shopped around. I love your mini versions.
