What You'll Need:

  • 3/4 yard of white fabric
  • Yardstick
  • Blunt scissors

  • 1-1/4 yard of 1/2-inch-wide lace

How to Make Doll Bed:

Step 1: Cut a 7x7-inch piece and a 13x18-inch piece of white fabric.

Step 2: To make the pillow, fold the small piece in half and sew two sides closed.

Step 3: To make the mattress, fold the big piece in half so it measures 9x13 inches. Sew two sides closed.

Step 4: Turn both pieces inside out. Stuff the pillow and the mattress with batting. Fold the open end on each piece under and sew it closed.

Step 5: For the bedspread, cut a 13x15-inch piece of print fabric. Hem the edges of the fabric and sew lace trim all around the bedspread.
