These printable dolls house miniature wallpaper and fabric designs can be printed on standard letter sized paper or inkjet fabric such as the EQ inkjet cotton lawn reviewed here, and scaled using your printer for smaller scale miniature scenes. They can be used as is for 1:6 and 1:9 scenes (Barbie, GI Joe, many model horses)

The patterns have been designed to be in 1:12 or dolls house scale. In the real world, the stripes would be approximately 3/4 of an inch wide, and the fleur de lys design in the wallpaper would be approximately 1 1/2 inch wide by 2 inches high. This gives you the option of using the pattern at the given 1:12 scale to produce patterns in larger sizes for smaller scales ( 1 1/2 inch stripes for 1:24 scale without changing the pattern.)

Each sheet prints a pattern 8 tall by 10 1/4 inches wide, which is as large as will fit on a standard letter size sheet. The colors all coordinate within each group and also coordinate with the miniature shop boxes, and miniature shopping bags with the same color group name.

You can change these patterns from 1:12 scale to most other scales by using the print to scale function on your printer. To work out the percentage you need to reduce a pattern in order to get a 1:12 scale pattern to a 1:32 scale pattern, create a ratio of the two scales (12/32) and that fraction is the amount you must reduce the pattern by on your printer. To get from 1:12 to 1:24 scale you need to set your printer to reduce the print by 12/24 or 50%, from 1:12 to 1:48 you need to reduce the pattern by 12/48, or 25%.

At smaller scales approaching 1:144, the pattern lines may be too small to be visible. Stripes printed at 1:48 scale can be used for awnings for 1:44 scale buildings.
