Papasan Chair PVC Pattern

5 reviews   |  

Your doll will love curling up in this cute and cozy Papasan Chair ... the perfect addition to her bedroom, dorm room or recreation area!

This PDF project pattern includes beginner-level instructions to make a chair frame from CPVC pipe, as well as step-by-step photo instructions to create the round cushion on top. The cushion attaches to the frame using fabric tabs with hook-and-loop tape, which means you could make a variety of cushions to use with the same frame. Hand-sewn tufting adds realistic detail and helps shape the seat.

This project goes together easily for most beginners, making it a great option for those new to using PVC pipe or if you need a quick and easy gift for your favorite doll-lover!

Cushion Diameter: Approximately 12 inches
Chair: Approximately 9 inches wide, 9 inches deep, 7 inches tall

perfect chair for relaxing!

I tested this chair Matilda JO. Easy chair to put together with the CPVC pipe. The Cushion/pillow sews up quick and easy. Directions as always easy to follow. I will definitely be making more soon.
