I finished the doll beds for my little Mommas, Sofie and Evie :)
They are both just getting to the age where they
are lovin' baby dolls!
The doll in the photo is Louisa, one of my Kathe Kruse dolls.
She was given to me by my grandparents for my 10th birthday.
She has traveled to Europe and back with me :)
I love my granddaughters with all my heart
but Louisa and her little sister Lisel,
will NOT be played with.......
not just yet anyways :)
For these doll beds I used Butterick 6661 from 1984.
It's a pattern I used for my daughter when she was a little girl.
You can still find it on ebay.
I used fusible fleece to strengthen the outside fabric
and craft bond to strengthen the lining fabric.
It made the sides "stand" better.
I also made little patchwork quilts for the inside
out of some of the girlie flannel remnants I continue
to buy and hoard :)
Now that these are done,
it's time to start on the babies that will sleep
in these beds.
I found a darling pattern on etsy
and I can't wait to get started!
