Barbie's Crocheted Bedroom Set

Complete bedroom suite.This is the third and final part of the crocheted furniture for Barbie or other small dolls. Since pink is Barbie's signature color, pulled out all of the pink yarns I could find. But if your little interior decorator doesn't like pink or would rather have a blue bedroom that is up to you.

Again you are making slip covers for the bases which are made out of polystyrene or Styrofoam or cigarette boxes. If made with the polystyrene or cigarette boxes this is pretty light weight furniture so why not make a duffel bag to store it in and make it portable. Another idea would be to find a small suitcase, decoupage the outside and store the furniture in it. The suit case will have pockets that they can store any accessories that you make. An average crocheter working in the evenings should be able to finish the bedroom set in a week.

Some tips: Due to the fact that all people have different tension, you can measure your starting chain against your block of polystyrene or cigarette boxes. Then just adjust the pattern from there.

The chaise can be made a solid color by making two bottom pieces and the back can be made solid by not doing the color changes.

I am sure that a lot of you know someone who smokes, if they smoke soft packs ask them to switch to the box for a carton and you will have plenty of cigarette box's to use. I choose cigarette box's because they are plentiful for anyone to get there hands on and they litter our highways and byways. This is a good wholesome way to get rid of them. Also if your child is allergic to nicotine they can be sprayed with a clear sealer before hand to seal in the nicotine from the tobacco residue. Use your creativity if you don't like the ruffles on any of the furniture leave it off. This will make a more modern bedroom set. You could also take my patterns and sew with fabric slip covers for the different pieces.

I think every one should have a Barbie bedroom. I hope that crocheters out there have enjoyed this series. But please remember that these are just the basic pieces. By now you have caught on to the fact that there are many different shapes you can come up with. Cigarette boxes could be stacked to make an entertainment center or a long table. You can cut Styrofoam easily enough to make any shape you would wish to cover. I tried to keep the shapes simple and did not use fancy stitches so I could keep it quick and easy, but you could use other stitches as well to make it different.

I also did not make any accessories which I figure you all would like to play around with. But here are some suggestions: Buy a small terracotta pot at a craft store (I know Michael's sells them) and add some silk flowers or leaves and you have potted plants. Lamp shades can be made from those little medicine cups and painted or a bead trim added and a medicine bottle could be used as the base. Crochet a small afghan and throw it on the bed or chaise or couch. You could also make more pillows. Crochet around a square base and it could become a computer or a TV set.

Barbie could have a play room or rec room by taking the couch pattern and adding the table and chairs from the kitchen and maybe the china hutch. More cabinets for the kitchen could be made by covering more bases. A couple of chaises and the table and chairs could be used for a sun room. Barbie could have an office with the five drawer chest as a file cabinet and stacking boxes for a desk. Three boxes on each side with beads wired on for drawer handles and a small polystyrene top would easily make the desk. If anyone comes up with more ideas, write an article and send it into Thriftyfun. I would love to see what you have done.

Quick and Easy Crocheted Doll Furniture

Living room grouping with dolls.

Living Room Furniture

Calling all little girls that love their Barbies or that have little dolls that need some furniture. Have I got a deal for you! This is number 1 in a three part series of articles about easy doll house furniture. Next week will be a crocheted kitchen and the week after that her bedroom.

These directions are easy enough for a beginner or as a project to teach different stitches. I am a pretty fast crocheter and these can be made in a couple of evenings for the average crocheter, a little longer for a beginner. This is a great project to do while watching TV as there are not many different stitches to the pattern so you can make them really fast. You will be recycling those obnoxious Walmart bags that seem to multiply in your cabinet and polystyrene packing material that does not break down in our landfills. You can also recycle cardboard or foam meat trays or Styrofoam for this project, it just needs to be pretty stiff to give your furniture some shape. If you don't know what Polystyrene is, please refer to the picture of materials. This comes in boxes with computer parts as the packing material. I tried to choose materials that everyone would have on hand so that you would not have to spend any money on making these.

Of course if you would rather buy yarn than to use scraps, I would think you could get the living room couch and chairs out of one Super Saver skein of yarn and the tables and rugs out of a regular skein of yarn. Sheets of Polystyrene can be bought at any pack and ship store.

Color combinations are up to you. I just used what I had in my yarn box. You could change colors for the arms or make the skirts different from the main body. You could also slip stitch the parts together with a different color which would look nice also as the slip stitching of the different parts really stands out. I also would not be afraid to make these with a textured yarn as the couch and chair were made with a really soft yarn that had bumps in it. Maybe let your budding interior designer help with your color selections.

Abbreviations:

Dc Double crochet
Sc Single Crochet
HDC Half double crochet

Materials

  • scrap hanks of yarn in matching colors or contrasting colors, worsted weight or two strands of thinner yarn held together
  • G crochet hook
  • white Wal-Mart bags for stuffing
  • 1/2 inch polystyrene packing material or cardboard
  • 1 box from a pack of 100's cigarettes or box measuring 4 inches long by 2 1/8 inches wide by 7/8 inches thick
  • 2 small boxes from short cigarettes or box measuring 3 inches long by 2 1/8 inches wide by 7/8 inches thick
Materials for project.

Living Room Couch

Back: Make 2

Row 1: Chain 24 in third chain from hook Dc and in each stitch across. Chain 2 turn.
Row 3: (Chain 2 counts as first stitch) Dc in each stitch across. Chain 2 turn.
Row 4: Dc in each stitch across. Cut and work in ends.

Seat: Make 2

Following same directions as above work 5 rows instead of four.
Band for inside of two seat covers: Make 1
Chain 5 in second chain from hook Dc in each stitch across. (3 Dc) Chain 2 turn.
Rows 2-28: Continue in pattern until the 28 row. Cut and work in ends.

Arms: Make 2

Chain 22: In second chain from hook Dc in back loop only and in each chain across. Chain 2 turn.
Rows 2-8: Continue Dc in back loop only until eight rows are complete. Cut and work in ends.

Assembly:

Back:

  1. Cut one piece of the polystyrene or cardboard just a little bit smaller than your back.
  2. With rights sides facing out slip stitch your pieces together on three sides. Start on a short side working up and along the long side and then to the second short side.
  3. Now slip in your polystyrene and holding it all together slipstitch your fourth side.
  4. Cut and work in ends.

Seat:

  1. Taking one piece of the seat and the band slip stitch band around edge of seat piece. When you reach the corner 3 slip stitches per corner to get you around. When you reach your beginning edge continue to slip stitch the two edges together. (3 slip stitches)
  2. Cut and work in ends.
  3. With right side facing out slip stitch second seat piece on to seat cover.
  4. Stuff with the polystyrene ( I used two pieces ) cut to the correct size finish slip stitching closed.
  5. Now to make the skirt on the bottom of your couch; starting in any corner of the raised slip stitch border, Dc 4 times to make a shell, *skip one stitch and make another 4 Dc to make a shell until you are all the way around the bottom. Cut and work in ends.
  6. Arms:

    1. Starting at the small end fold piece in half with right sides facing and slip stitch around to the other end making a tube.
    2. Cut and work in the ends.
    3. Turn right side out.
    4. Stuff with cut up Walmart bags until firm and then slip stitch the end closed.
    5. Now I prefer to slip stitch things together as I find that this makes a stronger joining and looks neater, but you can whip stitch the parts together if you prefer. I definitely would whip stitch the arms on I also use a little fabric glue to just make it stronger as these will get a lot of wear and tear.
    6. Back to seat: Lay the back on the seat and slip stitch through both ridges of the joining slip stitch. Cut and work in ends. Whip stitch arms to both back and seat.

    Fancy Chair:

    Row 3: 2 DC in each stitch around Join chain 2
    Row 4: HDC in each stitch around, Join chain 1
    Row 5 :Crochet in back two loops- 1 sc in each 2 stitch around, join, chain 2 (this can be a tricky stitch but what you are doing is SC ing to stitches together. So stick your needle into the first stitch and then with the first stitch still on your needle put on the second stitch and single crochet them together.) This is a decrease.
    Row 6 : HDC in each stitch around, Join, Chain 3.
    Rows 7-8: Dc in each stitch around, Join Chain 3
    Row 9: HDC in each stitch around, Join, Chain 3
    Row 10: DC in each stitch around, Stuff tightly with Walmart bag and then a piece of the Polystyrene and the slip stitch across bottom to close. Cut and work in ends.

Barbie's Crocheted Kitchen Furniture and Appliances

Look what's cooking! Barbie is in the kitchen.

This is the second in the series of Barbie or other small doll crocheted furniture. Please feel free to change colors to fit more with what your little interior decorator would like. I have tried to use materials that anyone would have or would be easy to obtain. There are a lot more pieces to the kitchen so I would say for an average crocheter working while watching TV it will probably take a week to complete. I have also tried to make sure that there are no little pieces that can be choked on so instead of buttons I have used embroidery for handles. Buttons could be used for an older child if choking is not a hazard. I did use chop stick pieces for handles on the refrigerator, stove, and sink, but made sure they were whip stitched on very tightly. But you could just embroider some handles on for younger children.

Basic construction of these pieces is crocheting the different pieces and then slipstitching the pieces together, making a slip cover over the base pieces of Styrofoam, polystyrene, or cigarette box. Styrofoam can be cut with a serrated knife and then the edges sanded smooth with another piece of Styrofoam. Polystyrene can be cut with an electric saw which gives a nice smooth cut or with a hand saw. In a pinch pieces of wood could be used for the bases, but this would make each piece heavier, and also a hazard if thrown.

Materials

  • scrap yarn
  • G crochet hook
  • electric or hand saw for cutting polystyrene or serrated knife for Styrofoam
    Use also for cutting chopsticks.
  • one block of polystyrene or Styrofoam measuring 5 inches in length by 2 1/2 inches wide by 3 inches thick for stove
  • one block of polystyrene or Styrofoam measuring 6 inches in length by 3 inches wide by 2 inches thick for refrigerator
  • one small block of polystyrene or Styrofoam for stools
    Cut into 2- 1 1/2 inch cubes.
  • one block of polystyrene or Styrofoam measuring 5 1/4 inches in length by 5 inches wide by 4 1/8 inches thick for sink
  • one block of polystyrene or Styrofoam cut into 3 inch length by 2 1/2 inches wide by 2 inches thick for microwave
  • two 100s cigarette packs glued together, or polystyrene, or Styrofoam cut for microwave cart
  • two small pieces of dowel for legs of microwave cart
  • one empty pudding cup from Swiss Miss Pudding
  • one piece of brown cardboard cut into a circle measuring 5 inches
  • one set of wooden chopsticks
  • one fancy ceiling hook
  • Walmart bags for stuffing
  • white glue for gluing cigarette packs together
  • epoxy or silicone glue for gluing ceiling hook in to sink and legs on microwave cart
  • four 100's cigarette packs: 3 glued together or a piece of Styrofoam cut to or a box measuring 4 inches long by 2 1/8 inches wide by 2 3/4 inches thick, one cigarette box or 1 piece of Styrofoam cut to, or a box measuring 4 inches long by 2 1/8 inches wide by 7/8 inches thick for the china hutch.

If you have a good sized library in your city, you can most of the time find them there. I live in Salem OR and mine has the books for each room.

I also just googled it and came up with enough to keep you busy for a long time! Just put in what is below and you will find something you can use. Plastic canvas barbie furniture: (09/17/2008)

RE: Patterns for Barbie Furniture

This reply is not about the furniture but plants and accessories. Many years ago my husband made a Barbie house for our niece. He made most of the furniture out of wood (with no pattern), and they turned out really good. But we felt like it needed "something". I cut out framed pictures from magazines and catalogs and placed them on the walls.

For the plants and planters I used bottle caps of different sizes for different plants. I spray painted them if they needed it, turned them upside down and put some green floral Styrofoam inside. Then I started "hunting" for the plants. I used leaves, stems, and other parts of fake plants. I stuck them in the green Styrofoam and fluffed them out.

It took a little experimenting, but they looked great. Once you get started just let your imagination go and run with it. Good luck.
