Make a recycled sofa for Barbie
Doll furniture has never been so easy to make or so cool to play with. We use a tissue box and paper towel roll to make a mod sofa perfect for fashion dolls.
1 Empty tissue box (9x4x5 inches)
1 Paper towel tube
Fun fur fabric
Fabric tac glue
1. Cut the paper towel tube to the length of the tissue box. Fill the tube and the tissue box with crumpled scrap paper for strength.
2. Wrap the tube with the fun fur, leaving 1” on each end. Trim to fit the tube, glue in place along the centerline and allow to dry. Tuck the ends into the tube and secure with a drop of glue.
3. Cut two pieces of fun fur to fit the sides of the tissue box. Use fabric tac to glue in place. Wrap the front, top and back of the tissue box with fun fur Cut to fit and glue in place.
4. Glue the fur wrapped tube to the back of the sofa to create the back cushions.
