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.
The poor dolls have been waiting for a chance to really kick back and relax. Finally it has come in the form of this couch! The modern style is so appealing. The instructions are well thought out and quite clear with great pictures. This pattern leaves you with a very rewarding result. I never pictured myself making doll furnishings, but here I am and happy to. Now I can make chairs in whatever color I want!
I had a blast making the items with this pattern. The directions are clear and thorough just like I've come to expect form QTπ patterns. The best part is that the finished product looks like Real furniture, not the usual fake furniture you find for dolls. Another great pattern from Marilyn!
I was timid to try making my chair, but the instructions are so thorough and walk you through one step at a time. I now have a finished chair for my doll displays. Very pleased!
I just completed this set and I must say it is BRILLIANTLY DESIGNED! Perfectly sized furniture pieces, clear and easy to follow instructions make this a really outstanding and fun project. Just make sure to measure and cut out the pieces accurately and use really sturdy toothpicks...I used bamboo skewers cut shorter in the final construction of the arms. You won't be disappointed with this one...it is a must-have for the dolls, as well as a blast to make!
