Cozy Cabin Couch

Things are starting to take shape in the new studio space and I took some time today to work on the Cozy Cabin project.  I have been debating on what kind of fabric to use for the living room.  As luck would have it, my favorite pair of jeans recently became available.

I have been planning on using this couch in the cabin because I have a nice sofa table that it works well with.  The couch and and a matching wing chair were some of the first 1:12 scale furniture pieces I purchased several years ago. The photo in the background was one of my inspiration photos.

The strawberry covered couch came apart pretty easily which made changing our the fabric go pretty smooth.

This is where I am at so far.  I was able to use some of the existing stitching and seams to give the sofa a more tailored look.  I added cushion to the back.

Here is a view from the rear, which is actually the side that will be facing viewers in the cabin.

Here a few of the other pieces of furniture that will be in the living room.  Some nesting tables and a bear skin rug.  I found the wood armchair at a local flea market, I dates from the 1940's.  I made a denim cushion for it too.

Next up are some throw pillows!


  1. It looks Great, Troy! Never let a good pair of used jeans go to waste!!! I have been looking for some faded denim... it also needs to be very thin... and am waiting for my jeans to be no longer wearable! LOL! The number of times I have cut up my clothes for the dolls is embarrassing! But we mini-lovers need to do what we gotta to get the job done! I am looking forward to seeing more of your cabin project! Hooray that you finally have your work space!

  2. Great idea. The "new" couch is fantastic.

  3. The couch looks great! The cabin is going to be a very cozy place to spend the weekend. I can't wait to see the next project.
