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! 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 ♥
Then I made this… (for me ..but Lex will probably steal it :)
…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!!
