I decided I had to show you the doll beds that will be for sale at the craft show. I have three vintage doll beds. DH fixed them as needed: painted, refinished, screwed, glued, etc. Of course, I made the doll quilts, the pillows, the mattresses and the sheets.
The white one above is an antique and required a little more work than the other two. The one below is a vintage Cabbage Patch cradle.
I really like how this brown one turned out and the new, but vintage looking quilt really fits it well. Actually, the quilts will be sold separately, but I put them on the beds for the picture taking.
I use faux pillow ticking fabric to cover the mattress. Then I make a fitted sheet that the mattress slips into.
I put velcro on the end to keep the sheet on the mattress. When (or if) the sheet gets dirty, it can be removed to be washed.
|I hope you can tell that I really enjoy fixing these doll beds up and hope someone will enjoy them.|
