Crafts: doll bed set for Kaylee

I finished up the doll bed set I have been working on for Kaylee.  The bed is from Ikea which I sealed with beeswax and plan on covering the screw heads as soon as I get a counter-sink bit. The bunny is a Miyim organic toy we received as a gift (which I highly recommend. very cute, well made, great company, and organic).

The quilt matches the one I made for her for Christmas (which disappointintly, is not holding up very well and already needs a few repairs)

I made a mattress (which is really just a pillow), a mattress cover, two pillows and cases out of matching fabric – more of the stash from Paris.

Here you can see what everything looks like apart

Kaylee looks so tiny next to it. She seems so big lately, it is nice to see her in perspective once in a while so we remember that she really is still just an itty bitty thing.

  2. I am not sure why her quilt is coming apart or what to do about it. It seems to be happening with one fabric in particular, the elephant print which is an import from Japan and thicker than most cottons – maybe the thickness required a larger seam allowance? I have not attempted to repair it yet. I have no clue how, but my guess is a blind stich which I am horrible at and dread doing. I plan on making a second color brick made entirely out of linen. I think I will made accomodations to the pattern for a 1/2 in seam allowance rather than 1/4 inch just to be on the safe side. Best of luck with yours!
