Nancy Enge, my helper that cleans up the patterns for the blog made the Lisa sofa from my kit.  She sent me a picture and I had to share it with all of you.  She used a micro check from a thrift store shirt and the feet are a deep purple.  It's so modern!  I had never thought of it as modern, it takes another eye to see things.

I do have two kits available on CDHM if anyone wants to try this out.

1 inch minis has begun to make kits for 1 inch scale furniture!!  I had hoped to get this introduced a little earlier but we have a new addition to the family, his name is Luke and was 6 lb. 10 oz., loving being a grandma!!

I will be making more kits as the weeks go on.  The second kit will be the matching small wing chair that goes with this sofa.

All the pieces are cut out and ready to be glued together.  All you need is 1/3 yard of 100% cotton fabric, tacky glue, needle and thread for sewing the pillows together and craft paint and satin spray finish for the resin feet.

There are two tutorials to help you out with more pictures, although I do have pictures in the instructions.  To review the tutorials are: Make and upholster a 1 inch scale chair, January 20, 2013 and How to  make piping for pillows, April 4, 2010.

The kit is $30.00   U.S. Shipping $4.00; International Shipping $14.00; e-mail me at with your shipping address and e-mail address for PayPal to order your kit.

P.S.  If anybody has an idea on how to fix the e-mail notification on the blog let me know.

O.K., I received notification this morning . . . so thank you to someone that fixed the problem!
