Reviews - What do customers think about The Beaded Dollhouse: Miniature Furniture and Accessories Made with Beads?
Exceeded my expetations Jun 18, 2008
I got this book thinking it was just a few patterns for beds and chairs. Wow, totally wrong! You also get lamps, rugs, ceiling fans, plants, even a birdcage, and much, much more. The projects use various sizes of beads, so stock up on sizes 3 and 4 mm Swarovski and Czech fire polished and have a nice seed bead assortment on hand. And, the illustrated instructions were wonderful. I was even to figure out how to make a dining table with chairs although there was none in this book. I would love to see more books just like this!
not what i expected Aug 14, 2007
wish i could send this book back for a refund because it wasn't what i expected. all other purcases i've made were satisfactory. one used book i bought was missing pages, the Beaders Bible, a used book is a used book. i will be more careful in the future.
