The pudding

In an earlier life, a friend's partner was an upholsterer and I had apparently paid some attention to what he was doing. I had acquired some doll beds (intended to fit the 18" dolls) over the spring and summer and decided to do something with them. I remembered the things I had heard regarding upholstery at just the right time, so with minimal re-dos, I made mattresses and mattress covers for the beds. Additionally, I made removable sheets, matching quilts and pillows, and did a little touch-up/decorating on the beds. I can not tell you how much fun I had!!

The cradle is in satin and the other is in cozy, soft flannels. I think I must be re-living the 'doll' stage of a little girls' life.

Sweet dreams!!!
