To make a sofa from a cardboard look like a hundred, it will have to be covered with a high-quality fabric and made soft. For this purpose, we need an exceptionally dense fabric, for example, velvet, plush or corduroy.

As for the colors, they should be cheerful and designed for girls.

Softness of the sofa will give a padding( you can make it from felt, sintepon, cotton or cotton wool), which fits under the fabric with a thick layer on the sides of the sofa, forming armrests.

Plus, you need a pen, ruler, double-sided adhesive tape and glue.
