Miniature Red Leather Couch

I made this for the
44cent envelope swap. It was sent unstuffed. I made this pattern. It was completely my own design.
Wo’d ever think they were going to get a whole couch in the mail???

Hi! I'm a retired Bridal Designer, and am now spending my time getting back to pleasure crafts! My husband and I are still newlyweds, nearing our 3rd anniversary on October 2. I was single 33 years! We moved across the country from Phoenix Arizona, to Lumberton N. Carolina. The slower lifestyle agrees with us! Both empty-nesters, Jim and I are finishing the work on the 1950's bungalow style cottage. Fortunately, this home has a huge addition.... adding about 40% to the original size. Having to quit the sewing trade due to a disability, I spend my time on projects for home, family, and pleasure- as I feel able. Jim, now a Pastor/Judeo Christian Rabbi; is retired from the tile trade, and currently joins his friend in local ministry. This includes a bible study twice a week at a local prison. Join us as I document the journey in our changing lives!

  1. That is awesome! If you made it out of something that could take pins (that looks like leather or pleather or something that you can't poke holes so easily in?) so that you could use the couch as a pin cushion, with maybe a tiny storage ottoman that could hold bobbins.. a spool of thread as a coffee table.. It could be like a whole scene from The Borrowers!


  2. Thanks, Gals!
    I made this for a craft swap. We did a .44 cent envelope swap on craftster. I made this for Lovesclutter. She is building a poppet house. It was photographed stuffed, so she could see it finished, but sent to her Un-stuffed. I can't believe I actually got it in the envie!
    Yes, this is leather, but not a thick one.
    I made the pattern myself.
    Those are both great ideas, thanks for posting comments!
