Dolls bed

My Creation

I decided I wanted somewhere to show off my Dollfies, so when I found this plain pink and white crib designed for a Lissy Doll I realised with a little work it would make a fabulous four poster for my girl as it was just the right size.
I replaced the original mattress with a piece of foam covered in fabric for a sturdier base. I took off one side of the crib completely as it wasn't needed. Then it was sanded all over and painted with black gloss paint which was allowed to dry overnight. I used black satin fabric and wadding to make a duvet and pillow with some red lace sewn over the top for a little decoration.

The curtains were made from simple rectangles of voile with lace tie backs.

And now the bed is much more suitable to show off up to four of my dolls at once.

Her dress is also another of my creations
