Once again, Stephanie of the Crafty Kitty, delights us with this magical tutorial for doll bedding.  We love how simple and flattering this look is.  And what a special gift for a special little girl!

We have two of the Ikea Duktig Doll beds, and I thought it was high time, I made the kids some special home made bedding to go with them! I’m going to show you how to make a mattress, pillow and quilt, with this doll bedding tutorial. I used prints from the Birch Fabrics’ Ipanema range. I love the versatility of these prints. Keep your look bold by using the prints on their own, or mix them up with a plain organic fabric, for a more muted look!

Seam allowances are 1/4″ unless otherwise stated.


Mattress Supplies

Step one. Put the two pieces of fabric right sides facing and sew around the edge. Leaving a 4″ gap on the bottom edge.

Quilt

Supplies

Step one. Using†triangle template cut four from organic cotton/organic linen blend, one from rio geo pool, and two from rio geo sun.

Step three. Pin together the backing fabric, wadding/batting and quilt top.

Step four.  Quilt using straight lines, along the edge of the plain triangles. I co-ordinated my thread with the patterned triangles.

Step five. Fold Edge of backing fabric towards quilt top and then fold over on top of quilt top, so that raw edge is concealed. I like to try and make, what I affectionately call: ‘vaguely mitred corners’. Top stitch or use a blind stitch to attach the binding to the quilt top.
