I think I am addicted to making these miniature polymer clay picnic baskets. 1:12 dollhouse scale picnic basket can also be used as a 1:6 play scale lunch basket. The lids are hinged so that it may be opened.

1:12 scale picnic basket challenge

When I mentioned to some friends that I wanted to make a series of miniature baskets my muse (who is no longer on vacation) tossed picnic basket into the list of possibilities.

Weaving clay on a scale this small proved a bit challenging for me.

I just need to make the hinged lids for this one and it will be done. There is a 12oz can in the photo for size comparison.
