For those who don’t know who the Andersons are, they are characters in one of our stories – a vegan family who live in an old bus. Look here
Anyway, I had such fun building a model of their bus last week that I didn’t want to stop there – I had to furnish it! Now, before I show you what I did I want you to bear in mind that I have no previous experience of doing anything like this and I just made it up as I went along. So forgive its many imperfections and picture how much I enjoyed doing it – that’s the main thing 😉
Looking at the pictures I’d drawn of the inside of the bus in episode 1, I wanted to make furniture to match – ish. So I needed a driver’s seat with a partition behind; a table and chairs behind that; and a settee behind that. I made these out of cardboard and stuck them to another piece of cereal box, the same size as the bus roof, covered in decorative paper for the floor. They are very basic, and too wide which is why I only had room to draw the furniture on the other side of the bus, but it doesn’t matter, I can still get a feel of how things are laid out in Old Red.
