Dollfie Dream Armchair

Had been meaning to try to make a Dollfie Dream sized armchair from scratch, recently finally got around to it ^o^

The idea is inspired by Matin sensei of Atelier Matin. But this time instead of a really nicely made sofa kit kindly provided by Matin sensei, I built the base with pieces of foam glued together.

Behind Mirin is the the original sofa which I built last year from Matin sensei’s kit ^^/

Mirin approves :P She likes that she can put her tea down on the arm rest ^^

Vivi (Mamachapp) Is 1:6 scale so it was not possible to have Dollfie Dream girls share the armchair with her ^^;

Below is an older photo taken last year.

The design of the armchair is made with some reference to the shape of our actual Ikea couch at home :3

As I am not very experienced or skilled with cutting the foam, the armchair’s base is not perfectly cut (oops). Luckily the fabric and cotton sheets somewhat hides it ^^; I also think I could have done a better job with tucking the fabric tho!

After the foam pieces is formed, then parts of it are padded with cotton sheets, then a layer of fabric cut to shapes required are tucked into specific corners with a tool. I think I need some legs for the chair lol!

Thank you Matin sensei again!

    Ooooo~ -is getting ideas for funrnature- I never thought of using foam~ I was just going to have my grandfather, he’s good with wood, to help me make a base so that I could upholster it :3 but foam sounds more fun :)

    Wow, that looks great. Nice job on it! Probably much cheaper to build your own (if you can do it). All the Dollfie-sized furniture I’ve seen for sale is really expensive >_<

      thanks! ^^ as for cheaper or not it also depends on if the materials are expensive or not or difficult to access ^^;/ and the expensive ones may be made with more sturdy materials than foam :)

    That couch looks pretty good, at first glance I thought it was one of those smaller couches for kids. I am amazed you built it yourself and that it’s made of foam.

      I hope to come up with other ways to make it then make a tutorial or something perhaps :) I think this is a nice little item for our dollfie kids to have :D
