Does anyone have any plastic canvas Barbie furniture patterns they are willing to share?
By Tareesa from Pocatello, ID
In my experience, most Barbie Doll furniture is pretty flimsy and kids can be rough on it, so when I make furniture, I find that if I cut out 2 side pieces instead of one and 2 back pieces instead of one, etc. (which means I am sewing through 2 thicknesses of plastic canvas instead of one), it makes the furniture a lot more sturdy.
This site has several good pattern books right up your alley!
I have the Dream Doll Castle with furniture and some other furniture. If you are interested, I will send you a CD with them. Email me and I will email you back. This is plastic canvas patterns that I am willing to share to you. undamnyankee AT yahoo.com

You're going to love this. Years ago when they first came out with Barnie furniture, I couldn't afford to buy them. Instead I went to the library and got out wood making books on furniture. You can use those patterns to make your own Barbie furniture. I made a china cabinet with working drawers and doors, a bed that also doubled as a jewelry box etc etc. Hope this works for you. Good Luck. (02/22/2009)
