Doll Bed Quilts
These aren't actually quilts... more like a coverlet with a quilt-type top. After making the quilt tops, I used a double flannel as lining, top-stitching the opening and edges all the way round.
While I was dreaming up this idea for Christmas gifts for my granddaughters, I thought it would be cute if I could find some tiny teddy bears or other stuffed animal to put on the beds. When I stopped by Hobby Lobby after work Friday to pick up the eyelet ruffle, I came across teddy bear Christmas ornaments!
I cut off the gold cord hangers, the cheap ribbon bows, the price tags ($1.77 each!) and the materials tags. I did replace the ribbon bows with a nicer quality ribbon and set the teddy bears up against the pillows. Perfect!
I'm now done with the doll beds and am resisting (so far) making crochet afghans for the foot of the beds. Yes, I am totally nutso... ;)
I still have to make nightgowns for the grandgirls' dolls.... and, if I feel industrious, I'll make matching slippers. We'll see...
