Dolly Bedding is just so much fun!
Each year my school district gets involved with a silent auction to raise money to host a Christmas dinner for the homeless and less fortunate. The Student Leadership Team gets involved and it is a great event. It is also a great way to get your Christmas shopping done as it is held each year just before Christmas. Last year, I had an idea to donate a doll bed with the appropriate bedding. I convinced Husband to make the doll bed and I provided the bedding. So much fun! The doll bed and bedding raised $80 at last year's sale. I was delighted! I managed to get Husband to make another one so we could donate a second one. He is just so clever!
Here it is! Cute as can be. The quilt is is mostly Moda's Amelia with some dots for fun and I backed the wee quilt with a Kaffe Fasset print and bound with a scrappy binding. Only the best for dolly for sure! I also made a little mattress pad with multiple layers of batting scraps tucked between some flannel with little pink ballerina princesses. The little quilt measures 16" x 18" and is put together with 3.5" squares. I love it!!!!!
I am going to link this up with Megan's Sew Modern Monday and tomorrow with Fabric Story Tuesday at Quilt Story! Check out all the other lovely finishes too!
