While I didn't really use a pattern for this piece, I did use some knowledge I have from using the book Dolls' House Furniture. The book is written for making 1:12th scale miniatures, but I've scaled up the patterns in it for 1:6th scale and now 1:4 scale. Sometimes the measurements need adjusted, but that is why I always make paper models first. Since I've made several pieces in this style in Barbie size, I kind of just winged it with this piece. I started off by recycling a shipping box I got earlier this year as the base. The seats are made from some packing foam that was in a cabinet I bought. The sides and back are made from 1/2" foam core board. I used a combination of glue and straight pins to keep in secure. It is now a permanent piece of 1:4 scale furniture in my stash! :-) I added 2 matchign back pillows I sewed as well as the white one, which I bought earlier this year. I had intended to put feet on it, but forgot to take them into account when I made the seat cushions. So the feet would have made the loveseat way too high so I decided to sip them. *shrugs*
I packed up all the furniture from the kitchen, and started setting up the girls' living room. I've used the wooden shelving unit I had in the kitchen again here, but this time I turned it so it is standing upright.
The tree stands 18" tall and was purchased at Hobby Lobby. I hope to start decorating it next week. Of course there is the fireplace I made in the center of the room. I haven't decided exactly what I'm going to do with all the open wall space in the room, but I am thinking about possible a decent sized framed mirror and maybe a large wreath. Then of course I plan on decorating the mantle and adding some Christmas decor to the shelves in the wall piece too. My other decorating dilemma will be what to put inside the fireplace. I have 2 options right now.... a stack of 'logs' cut from branches that are the right scale. or I could make several candles in what ever color I decide on and do something like the rooms in this LINK.
