Your Fabric Choice


I thought I would show you a special order made for Linda. http://une-petite-folie.blogspot.com/ She sent me a photo of a fabric she loved on a life size wing chair.
I happened to know where I could find something very similar in miniature. So I sent her a link to see it. She really liked it so I made her this chair in 1: 12 scale.
For a limited time I am going to offer to make these chairs with the buyers choice of fabric. There are a few fabrics that are just too difficult to work with. Those are ones that are too thick or stiff. Flimsy fabrics such as silk are fine because I add interfacing to them.

If you are interested you can send me an email. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX The price varies due to fabric placement. If it is a print that I have to place very carefully such as the William Morris prints the price will be higher. So you can expect to pay between $325.00 to $375.00 USD. Payments can be paid via PayPal.

I will give you the payment email address when we have worked out a fabric and price.
Linda... I hope you like your chair! Catherine XXX

  2. Beautiful work! Welcome back to selling miniatures, it seems you have found a passion for these chairs.

    I love that original chair too. The curve on the front, the slight slope of the back makes one want to lean back and relax. But of course not for the ladies who must sit with their backs straight at all times...

  8. Lucky Linda, it is beautiful. The fabric on the original chair looks very much like a doona cover I have that I bought a few years ago, made in linen. But I think your mini version is even prettier, more 'pink'.
