A little rough carpentering-work will produce a doll’s sofa, beautiful to a child. The one here shown is 14x6 inches, and 9 inches high. The seat is 3¾ inches from the floor. These proportions are quite satisfactory. The seat is a trifle padded with wadding, and the upholstering is done in pink-and-white cretonne. A valance covers the space in front from the seat to the floor.

The little comfortable at the foot of the bed is of pink silk.
