The pattern as easy to follow and produced good results- I made the chair and ottoman as doll storage space is an issue for me . I used a furniture upholstery fabric so I had some difficulty piercing the fabric to put the toothpcks through to hold the frame but I was able to achieve it.
The pattern is easy to follow, haven't finished it as yet but getting there
I love this pattern, absolutely love it. I wasn't sure at first about the Styrofoam. I thought it might be fragile. Totally the opposite. The couch is very sturdy as is the Ottoman and chair The dolls fit on all pieces great. Even my WellieWisher dolls fit great. I really like the modern look too. I can't wait to make another set. As always the instructions and pictures are so well done, and easy to follow.
