{Adorable Doll Bed & Bedding}

I shared my beds/bedding on the Wood Connection blog yesterday but just had to share it here for our readers too.  I must say…this might be one of my all time favorite things I’ve made…I had so much fun making the bedding!

Santa’s bringing a set of Boy/Girls twins to our house on Christmas Eve!  We love girl/boy twins at our house.  My 2 and 5 year old little girls will be so excited to see these beds and new babies under our tree this year.

I wanted to get bigger doll beds (the ones that fit most sized babies/doll).  They fit American Girl dolls too!  When I called the Wood Connection, I was thrilled to find out they had unfinished wooden doll beds.  I immediately had to grab two (for the twins).  The Wood Connection is located in Salt Lake City, UT.

I love the Scalloped headboards!

I spray painted mine white (using a paint and primer-satin finish).  I wanted to keep it simple so I could have fun with the bedding.  It was so easy to finish!I found some adorable polka-dot, butterfly/flower and bird fabrics to mix.  I wanted them to coordinate but one be for a boy and one for a girl.  Having boy/girl twins that share a room, I have had to make both boy and girl decor work together.

The pillows are my favorite.  I made simple pillowcases, but added cute ribbon and ric-rac.

The mini throw pillows were so fun to make…I used Nikkala’s Felt Flower Tutorial to make the flower on my girl pillow.  I made a felt bird for the boys to match his fabric.  I {heart} felt!The blankets were simple to make.  I just made a double sided duvet…I used thick fleece inside.  That way it looks cute folded down.

For the mattress, I found 1 inch foam at the craft store and cut it approx. 10 x 20 inches.  I then made a slipcover for the foam mattress using the gingham material.

And to top it off, I added that really soft minky material…for a little throw at the bottom of each bed.

This was one of my favorite projects to make….I cannot wait for my little girls to see these!

Now for the best part…The Wood Connection is giving away a $25 dollar gift certificate to one of our readers.  You will need to be able to go to the store which is located in Salt Lake City (since they are not shipping right now). They also have a large variety of clever wood projects…you have to just go look and see for yourself!  I can’t wait to go back.

Leave a comment to enter the giveaway.  This giveaway will close Sunday night, December 18th 2011 at midnight MST.  We will announce the winner on our Facebook page on Monday morning , December 19th.

    How absolutely darling! Your project brings back a lot of good memories of when my daughters were the same age as yours, which about 30 some years ago.

    Oh Jamie, you’ve done it again! I’ve had my eye on this bed (and the cute high chair they sell as well) since August. Your post gave me the push to run and grab them! I’m glad you made yours first so I don’t have to think too hard on the bedding ;) I love it all! You did an amazing job! Can’t wait to get started on mine!

    These doll beds are adorable. I was wondering if you’d be willing to share the tutotirals on how to make the bedding? I am new to sewing and have no idea the best way to go about making them. Thanks so much and thanks for sharing your super cute stuff!

    Do you sell this bedding? My almost five-year old is getting the Bitty Twins next week. Wish I could buy this exact bedding! It’s adorable!!

  16. Kathy Julian says

    Thanks so much for this post – I was looking for an unfinished bed – I’m going to try to make a Princess and the Pea bed and bedding.
    Thanks!

    I know this was a couple years ago but I would love to know where you got this fabric, I would love to see if it is still available. These are the exact colors I’ve been wanting to do my girl/boy room in and this fabric couldn’t be more perfect!

      The beds are for sale. There are a couple different companies that make them. These beds are from Wood Connection here in Utah. And I have posted another set that is from Poppy Seed Projects. You can find a link in the post to both retailers I believe.
      The bedding is what we have made and we don’t sale it. Sorry.

      Thanks!
