I made this soft and fluffy Barbie Sofa today and I am quite happy about it.



I just cut 4 rectangles, 2 longer for the sitting part and back and two smaller for the arms. Filled them with sinthetic wool and then sewn them together.





The dress is also an original prototype.

I am thinking of making armchairs now:)

Love it!

An added suggestion if I may:

If you sew snaps, two on each end and maybe three on the back where the sides and the back come up instead of sewing them together at the back, you could have it convert into a futon for Barbies over night guests!

Just a suggestion!

This is really cool and much more kid friendly than anything you would get at a store.  Think you should definintely make the arm chairs to go with it

I absolutely love this!

My neighbor's mother would make us great things like this when I was younger and I thought they were GREAT.  Now I can do them for my little cousins and everything. Wink

I agree. Matching armchairs would be so cute. I wish somebody would have made me a couch and chairs for my Barbies when I was a kid.
