Birthday Doll Bed

Last weekend was my granddaughter's 2nd birthday.  My husband and I decided that she needed a special dolly bed.  We ordered the wooden bed as a kit on eBay, put it together, painted and embellished it with stickers.  I went to work on making the mattress, quilt and pillow (complete with pillowcase). 

I filled the "mattress" with 4 layers of poly batting and tufted it with some zigzag stitches in the middle.  For the quilt, I used 3 1/2" squares of green and white fabrics, with flannel for the batting, and tied it with pink embroidery floss.  I added a little pillow with a pillowcase. 

I think she liked it.  : )

Materials used:
Wood doll bed kit - eBay
Pink and green fabrics - Pam Kitty Love by Lakehouse
White fabric - Moda Muslin Mate - Swirls
