I spent some time this morning designing my new sofa. I'm using the basics of Mary's tutorial and just changing it up a bit.
I used a corrugated cardboard box to make the frame. The base is three layers of cardboard and the back and arms are two layers.
The hardest part was determining the size of the pieces. The base is 5" x 2 1/4". The back is 5" x 2 1/4". The arms are 2 1/2" x 2" tall. It's nice to have a little helper as you go along. :D
I plan to cover the frame with my linen cross stitch fabric. I don't have very much of that so I'll have to be careful! For now, I just folded my paisley fabric over three layers of mattress padding for the cushion. I'll add wooden beads for the feet.
I think the arms are a little bit too rounded so I'll probably change them? If you check out my previous post you'll see the look I am going for. I'll be making a chair too if this idea works?
Hope you have a happy day!
