Miniature Tweed Armchairs and Sofas.

Before Bilberry Woods characters were born I used to have my own reupholstering business. I spend my days stuffing horsehair into armchairs, hand stitching seat edges and covering chairs with lovely fabrics.

Occasionally I make some furniture to my little animals to be used in photographs and now I have eventually made a few more armchairs and sofas! With some matching pumpkin shaped footstools. All the chairs and sofas are one offs, made by using wool tweed and stuffed with eco-friendly polyester. Several little Bilberry Woods characters tested them and they all approved :)

Here are a few photos of the making of them. From the little cut pieces to a crunched up bundle of sewn fabric to well stuffed chair.
