Blythe Doll Furniture - Cake Display Shelf

This is my very first attempt to make a Blythe doll furniture - a cake display shelf !!

If you know, Blythe dolls are large - very large according to my standards. I saw them in a local shop way back then and they are maybe like 25cm?

I don't have a Blythe doll, so crafting something like this is a challenge to me.

Thankfully my customer is willing to provide me with all the measurements. I put the measurements into a simple design layout and made sure my customer understands what it means when you want different measurements for certain sections. It depends what kind of layout you want for you cake shelf.

I worked on the wood fervently during the chinese new year holidays. But I needed to get the plastic sheet from the craft store after it re-opens after the holidays. After searching all the branches, it was found that they ran out of stock entirely. :(

I went home and decided to see if I get lucky with what I have in stock. I still have 1 sheet left, but it means there is is NO room for mistakes....

Before I cut it, I had to measure it a few times to make sure it was all precisely measured.

I cannot tell you how much of a relief it was for me when this piece was completed perfectly. I still have another one shelf to go - which I have another plastic sheet available, but it's not so thick. It should work since it is a smaller shelf.

This probably doesn't give you an idea of its actual height, but it's a little over 15cm tall. 

I will try to take another photo with my Lati so it gives you a perspective of the height :)
