A Bed For Dolly

OK, just one more handmade birthday post, I promise... at least for this birthday!

This time not by me though, other than the rag doll which you already saw. My parents, actually, teamed up to make this sweet bed set for River. My dad made the bed itself and my mom the bedding. I gave them pretty short notice, asking if they'd do it just at the beginning of this week, but I think they did such a  great job! My dad wants to make more but he's not totally happy with it yet, he just didn't have the time to go back and do any of it over.

I gave my mom a handful of fabrics from my stash to make the quilt. We don't exactly have the same taste in fabrics and I wanted to make sure it was super fun and girly! I would absolutely love to have a quilt for my own bed like this.

She's feeling cosy, I think.

Photobucket It was a project they both enjoyed working on so I think I'll be working on setting up their own selling space on Etsy. Mom's going to work on some more felt birthday crowns like she made for the girls, and probably some various quilting, which she loves to do. I'm really excited to see what all they come up. They're both retired and eager to focus on this creative outlet and to supplement their fixed income. And I'm just happy to help!


PS Last chance to enter to win this 7" doll... I'll call a winner tomorrow!
