remaking it all…

New Armchair needed – the last one is a tad large… (I think the new one is a little small… but lets ignore that shall we :-))

Clara version 1 and 2

Clara version 1 (left) and version 2 (right) (the head is a rough only - aids sizing)

How big do you think the set would have to be for the first verion (the left hand one!)

So starting again was a very good idea!


The arm edges of the armchair came out a little wrong hence the blanket! (It does come from a blanket that I have on my sofa… it now has a medium sized gap at the end – I’ll just hide that under the cushions :-))

The coffee table is made out of balsa wood – very weak stuff – I wont let the cat near it.

cutting along the grain means it cuts very smooth but against is another story… very rough edges but I wont be doing a close up of the coffee table so I don’t think it matters.

I’ll need to make a mini TV remote and magazines for the table and a freestanding lamp… and obviously walls and a floor. The floor has to be raised enough for me to undo the tie-downs (in the puppets feet) so I need to figure out how to attache all those components together.
