April New Arrivals: 1/3 Scale Cookies, Chocolate, Taiyaki and more

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

We made so many new items this past month so we decided to split it up into 2 parts. The first part for today is the release of 1:3 scale food and next month in May we will debut the rest of the 1:6 scale miniatures.

Orders for 1:3 scale food makes up almost 15% of our business so we wanted to add some new items to the menu to give more variety for clients with 1:3 scale dolls such as Smart Doll, BJD, Dolfie Dream and more.
New food in 1:3 scale
First item is an updated Pretzel. This one is a salted pretzel made for a client with a new and improved formula. You can also order it plain or coated with any sauce (chocolate, strawberry) or even dipped in toppings!

Next is for 1:3 scale dolls with a sweet tooth. These Chocolate Molded Swirls also come in 1:6 and 1:12 scale.

Taiyaki is a Japanese type of molded pastry filled with anko (red bean paste). Now there's a version for 1:4 scale (mini 1:3 scale Taiyaki)

Mini chocolate biscuits looks like small Bourbon biscuit. Another mini biscuit is the butter Danish biscuits also new to the 1:3 scale menu.

If your doll wants a biscuit with a bigger crunch, then try our new Cream sandwich biscuits which are 2 biscuits with a cream center. The biscuits can come in any flavour and so can the cream. Just choose your favourtite - chocolate biscuit with vanilla cream or biscuit with lemon cream?
1:3 scale Chocolate, vanilla and mint green biscuit creams
Strawberry, lemon and vanilla creamy center
There is also the new Liège waffles for a more substantial snacking. Comes in plain or one side coated in chocolate. Just like our miniature version, these waffles are a perfect 3D replica with waffle patterns on both sides.

Last but not least, we are also offering our Litlest Sweet Shop groceries in 1:3 scale. Our illustrator came out with the designs for the boxes so we can also make them in any size we like.

And that's not all! For every LSS Groceries which comes with loose pieces, it is also available in 1:3 scale
Littlest Sweet Shop groceries come in both English and Japanese copy. This 1:3 box version is completed with a bowl of cereal with milk by Littlest Sweet Shop. Commissioned by client

That wraps up all of our new 1:3 scale arrivals. Please stay tuned for the new miniature arrivals in May. I think we have more than 10 different types of new miniatures to debut so it is going to be a BIG one before Littlest Sweet Shop closes temporarily in June (whilst I am on holiday in Japan for the whole month).

Bye!

Commission update

Good evening Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Just an update on a recent commission for a Littlest Sweet Shopper in Singapore. She ordered everything in pairs because she will turn them into earrings! How cute! She even requested popcorn pieces in 1/2 scale and since everything we make here is bespoke, that is possible.
Littlest Sweet Shop commission. 1/6 scale cherry pie slice, waffles with butter, sunny side up eggs, cherry cupcakes, sausage rolls and small box of popcorn
Close-up pie and 1/2 scale popcorn pieces
I used the new silicone whipped cream to create a delicious looking cupcake!!
Box was designed and handmade by me and filled with popcorn pieces that was glued on as client doesn't want them loose
That's all for tonight. Sorry for the delay in updating the shop with new arrivals. The new arrivals will hopefully debut next week for April and May new arrivals. Reason being is because I am taking my summer vacation early this year and it starts in May where I will be gone for 2 weeks in Norway. I will also be in Japan for a month in June so the next new arrivals are going to be the last one until I come back and open shop again in July! You can still send a commission request via the online form and I will still get back to you with prices and estimated time of arrival.


See you again next week. Have a great weekend, BYE!

New Easter Arrivals

Happy Easter Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Today I am listing just the Easter items I have made recently since tomorrow is already Good Friday. I will be listing all the other new arrivals for April next week since I'm currently doing 2 commissions and sorting out a new video tutorial so it has been pretty hectic.

This is a second sculpt I made for Easter bunny chocolate and it actually sits properly balanced upright! They come in dark and milk chocolate plus pretty pastel colours. There are more details in the fur and it is a big chocolate bunny so you can have it as a centrepiece or as the big prize for an Easter Egg Hunt. It will also look cute in a basket surrounded with other Easter candy.

That's all for today. Remember that you can now buy the exclusive sets at Tiny Frock Shop and stay with us on social media for everyday updates.

Have a great Easter weekend and Good-bye!

Tilda Circus Blog Hop

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers 

If you have been following my 1/6 scale dollhouse adventures, you would have noticed that the interior decoration and furniture upholstery are made using Tilda products. I had even made a dress for the dolls using Tilda fabric (just make sure it is one of their smaller prints to suit the scale). Tilda is a Norwegian brand which makes lovely fabrics, paper pads, craft items, and more. The prints are so girly and kitsch so naturally it fits in with the Littlest Sweet Shop world. 
I received the new Tilda Circus fabric range to play with and made a few items for the girls. The new fabric range is so colourful and reminds me of festivals in summertime. I decided to make some teepees for Harumi (Ruruko doll) so she could play in the garden with teepee tents to keep all her favourite toys.

The prints are a bit more quirky than usual and beautifully matched with colourful bunting and rainbow colours. The sweet and cheery prints can definitely brighten up the day.

Tilda's signature vintage floral prints is so sweet and my favourite print from this collection
I also made a new blanket for the bed in the dollhouse. This is Akiko's room and since she is a ballerina, she loved the new print with a ballerina doing an arabesque on pointe on an elephant!! It is so Bohemian and at the same time the print is made in a gorgeous vintage blue so it matched all of the current Tilda wallpaper and curtains in the bedroom.

It is such a fun print so I also added pink pom poms to the sides. I had to hand-sew it on (took ages!) but I am so happy how it turned out.

If this is your first time visiting Littlest Sweet Shop for the blog hop, check out the other Tilda materials that I used for the dollhouse. You can frame up illustrations provided in Tilda paper pads and use the cardstock as dollhouse wallpaper. Even the sofa is made from Tilda fabric!

Hope you enjoyed that small update from the dollhouse. Join us again in the next few days as we bring you all of the new products for April including some new Easter bunny chocolates.

Commission update and a small announcement

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers!


Just a quick commission update. This time the order is for a Littlest Sweet Shopper in America and she wanted 4 cute doughnuts, a Hello Kitty latte, and a box for the doughnuts. The hand made box is a custom size. I up-cycled a miniature plastic cup and filled it with my own secret recipe to create the latte foam.
Commission 4 dougnuts, custom box and Hello Kitty latte.
I will also be selling a selection of miniatures and accessories at the Norwich Makers Market. Please come and support the local crafters of Norfolk. There will be plenty of lovely hand-crafted gifts for everyone. The Assembly House is also a beautiful venue and worth visiting if you happen to be in Norwich on the 8th April 2017.
That's all for now. I am currently busy with a commission and also getting ready for the craft sale so see you next month.
