DIY Miniature Knife
& Bonus Miniature Basket Tutorial
Dear Mini Makers,
Learn how to make a miniature knife. Fairies are in need of good kitchen knives just as much as the rest of us. Have you ever tried cutting a blueberry with a dull knife? Good golly, nothing's more frustrating!
In this Art~ala~Carte mini-course you will learn how to make a miniature knife out of a piece of metal and polymer clay. This is a very easy project that takes very little time (unless you make something simple into something complicated like I did on my first one). Since it's so simple and quick, I threw in a bonus tutorial about how to make a miniature basket the easy way (no basket weaving involved).
What's Included in the Mini-Course?
3 Video Lessons: Look over my shoulder as I make a miniature kitchen knife that's suitable for even the most renowned fairy chef. An easy miniature basket tutorial is included, totaling 16 minutes of video instruction.

My daughters and I started playing around with polymer clay in 2015. One day while searching online, I stumbled upon incredibly life-like polymer clay dolls.
What an unforgettable moment!
When I saw what could be achieved with polymer clay, the same clay I had been using like a toy with my kids, I knew immediately I had found my artistic calling and lifelong pursuit--I didn't want to do anything else.
I started sharing my passion on YouTube in 2016. My polymer clay tutorials have since been viewed over a million times and my channel has grown to over 25,000 subscribers. It's been an incredible privilege to be able to share my sculpting journey with tens of thousands.
