So after writing the post about the sewing pins yesterday and adding the pictures I realized that in the pictures it is not really possible to see HOW tiny the pins and pin toppers really are. Especially since the pin cushions are really small, too.
(I love those tiny flower pots. I got them at a flea market for a few cents! They are so cute!)
So I was thinking about what I could include in the photo to show the actual size. I was thinking about a coin - but figured that probably not all people are familiar with Euro-coins. So I tried to take a photo of the tea set in my hand - as you can see above. I was still not very happy with it. Then Care left a comment that I should take a photo with a coin or a ruler. YES, ruler. Why did I not think about that before! So here they come - photos with a ruler. Centimeters and inches!!! :-)
First the tea set - the top photo is always with centimeters as reference, the photo below always with inches.
Here comes a close up of the bee! You can see that the bee itself is only about an quarter inch.
The penguin - just for my husband to see. YES, I can do it! :-P
And a selection in one of the cute flower pots.
I did not want to take photos of all the ones I made again. Also simply did not have the time. They do not vary THAT much in size. But I remembered that I took one photo of all the ones I had made before putting them in the oven to dry. I was really scared that I would mess up the drying process and therefore took many photos before - just in case I would not be able to take pictures afterwards! ;-) So now you have all of them on top of an egg carton. This carton usually holds 10 eggs. I guess eggs are still pretty much a universal size ... :-)
And just in case you are wondering - yes, I did bake them with the egg carton. I did not want to put the pins down cause I was scared that they would flatten at one side if I do lay them down. The egg carton thing worked fine.
