New Sofa Skirt Design

 I have finally created a pattern for a new sofa skirt design.  I have been doing box pleats on every one but wanted to do this more tailored look so did my math (never have been good at math) and finally figured it out. This was the prototype.  Reminds me of sofa's in some of my great-aunts' homes.  I'll be doing more of these in various patterns and colors. And I'm also working on some chair designs.

A Rose Chaise and Blue Toile Sofa

 I have just listed in my Etsy two new pieces, a rose floral chaise in a feminine, shabby chic cotton print with coordinating pillow. It is perfect for a living room, bedroom or sun room with a cottage feel.
 In this room setting, I also made the hydrangea.  The cheese keeper is by Valerie Casson. The peach iced tea is by Everyday Gourmet. The chair is by Bespaq. The mantel clock was a kit from Cynthia Howe Miniatures.

 The blue toile fabric I have had for several years and I doubt I can still find it. I am not sure.  I think it's in perfect scale for 1:12th.  The Chippendale style sofa has box pleats and two coordinating white pillows with a subtle swirling pattern that has a soft sheen.  I also made the goose decoy and the blue hydrangea. The coffee table is by Lee's Line.  The decorative plate on the coffee table is by A Lavender Dilly on Etsy.
