Scratch-Built Couch

Please forgive my recent absence. My grandmother passed away, so I paused work on the bungalow to help clean out her house.

Inspired by Josje's modern sofa, I wondered if I could make my own for the bungalow. Thankfully, she posted her sofa-making method (I also referred to Pepper's tutorial).

This red velvet two-seater sofa, previously glimpsed in my Minis Modernas contest entry, is meant to be a miniature version of my real-life sofa (well, okay, my sofa folds out into a bed and this one doesn't - now THAT would be a feat).

It does look a bit battered, but so does the real sofa. (Note to self: make throw pillows.)


  1. I am sorry you grandmother passed away....I hope making some mini's will console you and bring you some happiness. Your couch sure looks good!

  2. Hello Anna,
    The sofa is lovely. You did a great job of it and I love the color.
    I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother. I will keep your family in my thoughts.
    Big hug,

  3. So sorry to read about your grandmother's passing, it's so hard to lose a loved one.

    The colour of this sofa is wonderful, and it looks very comfy! I think some pillows will really enhance it.

    Thanks so much for your very kind words about my chair makeover, it's very encouraging :)

  5. Dear Anna,

    Please accept my condolences at the loss of your grandmother. I hope that working on your miniature projects brings you some solace.

    Much love,

    PS Your red loveseat is adorable.
