I went here…
Because I needed to make these…
A good friend made a proposition… she would supply the insanely gorgeous iron doll beds (we had both been lusting after on Etsy) if I would make the mattress, pillows and all the bedding! …um …YES! (Thank You Dona) The bed is pricy, but is so incredibly well made, all by hand, welded solid and sturdy (1/6th is playscale, Barbie and Blythe size). You can buy miniature sheets and mattresses from some Etsy sellers as well, but at $30 a set that could easily get out of budget quickly! Making them myself, allows me to be super picky about the finishing & quality, I can design them exactly how I want, in whatever fabric I wish …cripes I may need a dolly linen closet (I swear I’m not weird!)
Give me a few days and after drafting patterns over and over, sample making, fabric shopping and working out all the kinks for a perfect fit, I arrived at wonderful! I am so pleased with how they came out, and a little shocked at the perfectness of them! The pictures are of the sets I sent to my dear friend, vintage hankie coverlets and wooly plaid blankets included! Sweet Dreams girls ♥
…nothing better than gorgeous stitchery in fatty aran ..thick like pancakes ♥
The Pattern: Cabernet Hat – aran by Monika Sirna.
Making that lead to making these…
I scaled the Cabernet Hat pattern down (because I love a challenge) then used tiny wool and tiny needles x 2 ..one for me and one for you ♥
The dress is a modified (made just a smidge larger and longer) garter edge version of the Lati Yello Dress by Shelley Selwood.
eek it’s so cute! I am completely in love with tiny things!!
