Such pretty fabrics! They were given to me by a dear friend.
A good stiff interfacing keeps the baskets in shape.
Little pillows and blankets are included, of course.
I also made some cuddly flannel pillow cases for their reading corner.

Change dress: replace blue cord lacing with black; hand sew black velvet trim on top of existing coloured trim (so I can take it off if I want the original look back). Apron: sew black/white striped fabric (already purchased). Cap: sew white fabric and lace (from stash), decorate (feather and brass owl button, perhaps, or goggles made of metal sieves). Ammo belt: cut faux leather, sew elastic to hold corks in place. Tool belt: add loops to existing belt, customize tools by using wood and/or copper self-adhesive foil. Blouse: I plan to use a ruffled long-sleeved white blouse I already have. Boots: My high-heeled laced black leather ankle boots will be fine, probably topped with something like spats - the faux fur hobbit foot toppers I've used over bare feet in sandals. Chains with old keys and/or other details: as time and material allow.Before I start on the changes, I want to take a "before" picture of the hobbit dress... Then, steampunk hobbit cook, here I come!
