It’s a little later than I planned, but…

I still want to show you what I made for HorseyBug for Christmas.

I was really pleased with how things turned out. =)

In another post, I shared how HorseyBug received my mother’s childhood doll and her doll bed. They (the doll and bed) are moving along in years and holding up well, but the bed has been well used. My dad had to make a new bottom for it when I was little and mom had to replace the mattress. She couldn’t find one that fit, so she used a little changing pad that is also starting to show definite signs of wear.  Here’s what the bed looked like before Christmas:

I made a bed skirt and fixed the mattress:

made a bumper pad:

made a quilt and pillow so the bed looks like a mini-crib.

Here is the finished project:

I thought it turned out so cute!

        Being the original owner, I have to say that my sweet little doll bed never looked so good! It’s enough to make Grandma want to play dolls again. = )

    You did a great job on the crib. No wonder HorseyBug wants to play with it. It just begs for someone to play with!
