What time is that you say? LOL. I mentioned last year that I'm a member of the Tulsa Smocking and Heirloom Sewing Guild. Every year we purchase an American Girl doll, make a wardrobe of clothes for her and raffle the whole shebang off to some lucky mom or grandmother to give to their little darling. The money we make from the process goes into our treasury so that we can bring in a great educator for the group. Two years ago we had Michie' Mooney and this last year we had Wendy Schoen
I'm going to make a couple of outfits for our doll and I also volunteered to create a doll bed with all of the accompanying bed clothes to go with it. Here's a pic of it so far.
Forgive the lighting. It was evening when I took the shot. I got the idea of making the bed from www.dollclothespatterns.net/
The bed itself is made from a wicker basket turned upside down and painted white inside and out. The cute headboard is made from decorative garden edging also painted white. The headboard is wired and hotglued to the back of the bed.
I made a bed-skirt with 2 rows of eyelet ruffles, 2 flat sheets, a pillow and pillowcase and finally, a reversible quilt. I'm in the process of making a little rag rug to go by the bedside and a little knitted throw for the end of the bed.
I think it turning out so cute!
