American Girl Doll Sofa from Costco Cardboard Box


Mu daughter LOVES her AG Dolls and has increasingly asked me to have all sorts of cute and $$$$ stuff for her....last one she asked for, begged for, was a sofa. Not cheap, not at all!
BUT, she was lucky when I glanced at a cardboard box from Costco I had in  the basement and I saw ...a sofa! 
Please forgive me  for the lengthy tutorial and  follow these photographic is easy, just time consuming, but easy and cheap! Keeping up with the thrifty nature of this project, I hit the sale bin of my local fabric store and got the fabric, filling, and upholstery white foam for $2,50 each!! I can hear my heart beat fast! lol

Hot glue, I love you!

now...some stretchy cotton...
Upholstery heavy duty stapler....I love you too!!

Trim the excess fabric
filling  + plastic bag..perfect !

For the cushions I used the foam saved form this project 
For this part, I took the foam to the sewing machine for basic sewing ...
In my opinion, the most sophisticated part of this project  haha..covered button for tufting!

Needless to say...customer more than pleased!
It is one sturdy seat!
