Little Mommas

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!


  1. Boy howdy Obi Wan you totally 'hit this ball out of the park' :-)!

    These are GORGEOUS :-)! I LOVE the hand stitching on the quilt; it makes it look adorable!

    I will have to chat with you when I start mine, I am going to start on Friday, I need to buy fabric. You have given me some ideas as I did not have a doggone clue! I am going to make a little quilt and pillow too (i am such a little copycat).

    I cannot wait to see the dollies :-)!

    Thank you for posting this. As always you inspire me Obi Wan :-)♥!

  2. Those are darling and the girls will have so much fun playing with them for years to come. You do great work Nana!

  3. I don't even play with dolls an i want that!

  4. Dang those are cute! I had to find the pattern and it's on order now. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Those are some lucky little mommies to be getting such beautiful baby beds! You're a good Grandma. I don't blame you, I have a doll from Germany that my Oma sent me when I was 6. No one plays with her either!;)

  6. Those are so adorable! I wish I knew you when my daughter was little so she could've had one too! ;)
