Airplane interior

Many, many years ago a Barbie plane joined my collection of playsets. It came with cool miniatures and a neat trolley, but the plane had only two passenger seats and the interior was rather short in relation to the height of the dolls. See one here at Amazon.com.

Recently, I needed to create a realistic interior scene of a plane and so I  took my Silhouette cutting machine to task. I created a four layered wall pattern, which would form the background to the window seats.

Here are the four patterns.

Each piece is half of a sheet of cardstock paper. If you are interested in the Silhouette pattern, email me at admin@lifecirclez.net. The sheets were stacked and glued, from sheet one to four (sheet four bottom, sheet four top). (Silhouette Website)

Then a piece of clear plastic like from toy packaging was cut and glued behind the window. Behind that you can pick the scenery to stick behind. I choose blue sky and clouds.

Voila!!

Now you have airplane windows!

The chairs are from the Barbie airplane, but I covered the seats with a cream felt material. Extra seats were obtained on eBay as I wanted the plane to have a few rows for passengers.

Maybe I should have painted the seats first before covering with felt, as you can slightly see the pink. A quick fix would be to cover this spot with those disposable head rest covers with the airline logo printed on to it.

New Poseable Additions to City Circlez

Well I’m on vacation again so what does that mean? Time to play in the doll room!!! 🙂

Recently I acquired four Made to Move Barbies. Two of the four dolls received new heads. One doll which came dressed in the blue top body received a very light toned African American Fashionista head and one dressed in a pink top  received a Skipper head (dolls in back row below). There is supposed to be a yellow top doll, but she is exclusive to Target and has not been released as yet. Can’t wait!!!
