Doll Cradle Bedding {Part 2}...


A couple of days ago I cut a mattress from a piece of foam and made a fitted sheet for the little doll cradle I picked up for $2.50 at Goodwill a couple of years ago.


After making the sheet I decided a little baby doll quilt was in order. I'm not a quilter. Quilters need patience, and I'm not a very patient person. I did, however, decide I could whip up a little 22" x 18" quilt that would fit this cradle perfectly. I started by sewing 15" strips of fabric together. I chose a variety of widths from 1 1/2" to 2 1/2" wide...


Then I cut that piece into a 6", 4.5" and 3" length, and sewed white flannel between those strips...


I put a lightweight quilt batting between the front and back and bound the edges of this little dolly quilt.


Then, for good measure, I made a pint sized 21" square ric-rac'd receiving blanket...


With the dolly diapers and bib and all this new bedding for the doll cradle, I think my little granddaughters will be in 7th heaven!
