Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: To Make Your Awesome Elegant Doll Sofa You'll Need:

8 rectangular foam regular sponges with a scrubby rough side

American tape

Glue gun + glue sticks

Scissors (Fabric scissors best)

2 different colors of fabric (I used satin black and blue fabric)

Step 2: This Is the Sponge Layout Composition So You Get an Idea on Where the Sponges Will Go.

Step 3: Start by Separating the Rough Scrubby Side From 4 of the Sponges.

Carefully peel apart the rough scrubby side from 4 of the sponges.

Leave the other 4 intact.

Step 4: Using One of the Sponges As a Template Cut a Rectangle Out of the Fabric.

Cut some rectangles bigger than the sponge out of the fabric keeping in mind you'll be wrapping your sponges later just like a present.

You need:

8 rectangles in the main color (in this case BLACK)

4 rectangles in the accent color (in this case BLUE)

Step 5: Wrap the Sponges With the Black Fabric Using the American Tape.

Carefully and neatly wrap the 8 sponges (4 intact and 4 with the rough scrubby side removed) in the black fabric using the american tape. Make sure you tuck in the edges making sharp neat corners.

After the first fold cut away excess fabric if needed.

Step 6: Now Wrap the Scrubby Rough Parts of the Sponges in the Blue Fabric.

Carefully and neatly wrap the 4 scrubby rough parts of the sponges in the blue (or the accent color of your choice) fabric using the american tape. Make sure you tuck in the edges making sharp neat corners.

After the first fold cut away excess fabric if needed.

Step 7: Let's Put Together the Base/cushions Part of the Sofa.

Take 1 full sponge and 1 with the scrubby rough side removed and glue them together with the taped sides touching each others using your glue gun.

Keep them pressed until the glue is dry.

If the borders are still open put a little glue on the edges and close them.

Make 2 of these.

Step 8: Now Let's Make the Bits With the Accent Color.

Take the remaining 4 wrapped black sponges and pair them with the 4 wrapped blue scrubby rough parts.

As mentioned before if you see some of the borders have gaps put extra glue to close them completely.

Let it dry completely for few minutes before next step.

Step 9: Let's Put the Base of the Sofa Together.

Alright is time to start putting the main components together!

Take the 2 black bases and glue them together by the short side.

Step 10: Now Let's Make the Back Rest Part of the Sofa.

Take 2 of the wrapped sponges with accent color and glue them together by the short side.

Step 11: Attach the Backrest to the Base of the Sofa.

As shown in the pictures glue the backrest to the base of the sofa.

Let it dry for few minutes before next step.

Step 12: Attach the Arm Rest to the Main Structure of the Sofa.

As shown in the pictures glue the arm rest to the main body of the sofa.

You can play with color here choosing if the accent color goes on the outside or inside of the sofa.

I glued mine on the inside. :)

Step 13: Repeat on the Other Side.

Repeat the previous step on the other side.

Let it dry completely for few minutes.

Step 14: And You're All Done!!

How easy was that!

Now your dolls have a comfy and chic sofa to sit on.

Happy making and playing!

If you make one of these make sure you take a picture and show it to me!

    Your finished product looks very professional. (I've only ever known that shiney black tape as 'electrician's tape' which comes in a few colors). Have you made any other doll house objects?

    Thank you! I'm maybe a lil too crazy about details I have to admit ahah I made few things but only recently started documenting everything I make on my YouTube channel so I'll keep you posted :) I'm also Italian born and raised and we call that tape "cinta americana" which translate in american tape I make up my own words sometimes ahaha
