I am having so much fun lately!
I’ve been Pinteresting like crazy, looking up all kinds of wire creations. This one here has been one of my favourites for a long time:
Really beautiful wire art on that blog.
Anyway, I decided it was time to make my own wire bed… I used some of Wayne’s copper wire. One meter of it to be exact. When he asked how much I wanted that’s what I requested and I was spot on.
Go figure. I measure and cut wood the wrong size. I can’t give you a quote on how much time it’ll take me to do a job, but I could tell Wayne exactly how much wire I needed to make something I’d never made before!
The thinner wire is also copper, but in a thinner gauge and brown. The little mattress is a thin bit of foam with a hand stitched cover. The cushion is hand stitched and filled with felting wool.
The blanket is a bit of felt I wet felted with a cotton cover to give it a quilted feel, and trimmed with a little antique lace.
This little bed was sold as soon as I showed it at the local shop I sell some of my things through. Its the perfect size for a doll’s house. Maybe its cause I’ve always loved doll’s houses and dreamed that one day I’d build my very own dream doll’s house from the ground up, but I love making this sort of thing.
I have another bed I’ll share soon as I make bedding for it.
