Haberdashery department

We're making a department store at our doll house club. I've chosen the haberdashery department: lots of small sewing items, balls of wool and bolts of fabric.

After spending a considerable amount of time wrapping fabric around 3/4"x5/8" strips of cardboard, making balls of wool from cut drinking straws at 3/8", wrapped in embroidery threat, and buying a range of suitable oddments, I thought I had enough items to fill my shop.

Unfortunately it still looks half empty but at least I've a good start. We don't need to be finished until September, to display at the Sunderland Horticultural Society event in Seaburn, so I've plenty of time to fill it to the rafters.
