"Kana Kicking Back"
This is a fully articulated Volks Japanese doll named 'Kana.'
(Sadly, this model has been discontinued! Darn it!)
Here she is modeling for a new line of custom couches
I am constructing 'from the ground up.'
(I had to use a coping saw and balsa wood!)
There is a pile of sawdust in my doll room.
Kana is lying on a handmade matching Angora pillow!!
(Better photos are forthcoming
when we get some real light here!)
Ahhh. Now this girl has the idea!
Wow! You're making couches! I'm so impressed. And I love how Kana is just reclining away.ReplyDelete
I know Lynn. The 'couch thing' was really FUN! My own pattern, too, which was a gamble. I made a balsa wood frame and the entire couch (top cushion, bottom cushion and side pillows) are all attached so they just lift out as one piece. So, theoretically, if I had other fabric couch parts made, you could change your couch out to a new fabric! Wow. If I had a backer I could market the concept on a larger scale. A bit like a futon but 'couchier.' :-)ReplyDelete
Your Kana looks very comfortable! :)ReplyDelete
Did you make or buy the dog?
jSarie, Bought the dog! (It's a vintage 'Barbie' black wire-cleaner poodle.) Made the couch and the wee little scarf! Thanks for you attention to detail. That is one of the hallmarks of a true doll lover!!!ReplyDelete
