A teacher friend , who follows my blog, asked me to make a doll quilt and pillow for her new/only grand daughter. She also has four boys and this is her first girl in the family!!
Her mother sewed and quilted and she had two of her blocks that we thought would be
so cute made into matching items.
The blocks were made from fabric of her maternity clothes that her mother made for her....
how special is this!!!
Here it it...
The little pink sheets
are one flat sheet and one
I found this adorable pink ticking with the little rose buds
on an Etsy site. It is a reproduction of a fabric that I have on
my own childhood baby doll pillows!!
You can see where I tufted the little mattress
using pearl cotton.
It was really a lot of fun to make
and never measured one single thing!!!
I just cut and sewed...
My friend was pleased and I really wanted to take
a picture of her with the bed, but she had been working in
her yard after the storm, Irene, damage and did
not want me to take her "in a mess" !! She, unlike me, always dresses
up very nicely...
I hope her new little grand daughter
really enjoys it for years to come.
