So, I have hit my first dilemma with the 70s House: it's a weird scale (I think it's 3/4) so none of my existing furniture fits it and I don't know how best to create 70s furnishings that will be just right for this house.
I have three patterns on hand that I think might work.
Plastic Canvas Dollhouse Furniture, by Babara Ann Fisher
I have to tell you. I have never seen a better candidate for plastic canvas furniture than this little house. And would that not be VERY 70s furniture in a nice burnt orange or avocado green?
Contemporary Living, by Helen Ruthberg.
McCall's 6889 - sewn, stuffed, dollhouse furniture (and house, actually).
I have been curious about this pattern since a customer brought in her half finished couch made with it. The furniture seems to come out comfy (important to me for some reason). And again, with the right fabric, it could be pretty 70s I think.
And thus, my dilemma. I don't know where to start! Or which pattern to start with!
And that's it. Out of boxes of furniture, I have two pieces. Well, so far. Maybe this weekend I just need to go through it all and see if anything else fits. But I KNOW I a) have nothing "retro" enough for this house and b) don't have anything at all that's 3/4 scale.
And I should probably crochet a toilet seat cover. :)
OH! Speaking of crochet. No matter WHAT furniture I end up putting in it, it is DEFINITELY going to need a granny square afghan.
What a project. What a dilemma. Though, if your biggest dilemma is "How do I furnish my super groovy 70s dollhouse?" that's pretty awesome.
I hope your week is awesome too. More updates soon! I missed this. :)
