I used the foam from a changing table pad I had made – when I sold the table I kept the pad for repurposing. I also used a window curtain set I bought at a garage sale for $.50 – they were too short for the window in my girls room so they were just laying in my fabric pile begging to be used. I cut the foam into the right size and cut one curtain in half and serged the edge.
Once the edges were like a present I sewed them down across the top edge - I’m pretty sure this isn’t the correct way to do this, but it worked. The slit in the back is not sewed down so the foam can be removed (you know, in case the doll wets the bed?).
And that’s it – the dolls can rest in comfort. I even used the other curtain to whip up a couple of doll blankets. Now the girls are requesting pillows for their dolls – it’s a life of luxury! Now, to do a fun paint job on the beds to spruce them up a bit…..
I will be putting this in the craft challenge to “use your stash” at Crystal’s Craft Spot, and also link to all those fun LINK PARTIES – really, check them out – great stuff!
