Market Stand PVC Pattern for 14- to 18-inch dolls
This pattern includes instructions to build a doll-sized market stand perfectly sized for 14- to 18-inch dolls such as WellieWishers™ and American Girl™. Play options are limited only by your imagination… create a lemonade stand, ice cream shop, bake sale, craft fair booth, farmer’s market … whatever you can dream up!
The market stand is made from PVC pipe, which includes fabric panels on the base of the stand frame and a fabric canopy at the top of the stand, as well as a removable countertop and signage. The base fabric panels as well as the upper canopy are lined. The instructional photos show the base panels lined with the same fabric used on the panel fronts; however, the lining fabric used for the canopy could also be used to line the base panels. Suggested cutting layouts are provided for both options.
The base panels and canopy are attached to the frame using fabric tabs. It is recommended that you choose fabric for the tabs that closely matches the color of your PVC pipe frame. The countertop is constructed of a combination of foam core and heavy chipboard. The sign is also backed by chipboard and held in place by elastic straps. A variety of printable sign options are provided … or design your own for added fun!
This project is suitable for most confident beginners. No power tools needed!
Available in both print and PDF downloadable format. Print book orders will begin shipping on August 28, 2017.
