Another Cradle Update

Well, it's been a while since I've posted about this one.  Remember the doll cradle I found on the curb in April?  (I blogged about making the mattress and pillow here and then the quilt here.)  Now there's finally a sheet and pillowcase for it.

A Mattress and Pillow

A Sheet and Pillowcase

I did consult a tutorial for making a fitted crib sheet.  I preferred this one because of the French seams then I just scaled it down to fit 12 by 22 inches.  The pillowcase is my favorite part.  I'm beginning to think piping can make anything more adorable.  However, I have to admit, the mattress is just so cute I hated to cover it up. 

A Quilt and Blanket

Here's the complete set.  Of course, some little doll or animal needs to start sleeping in here but at least it's ready for when inspiration strikes.  Or perhaps I'm simply prepared in case a tiny refugee happens by looking for a warm, safe place to overnight...  

These have to be some of the most enjoyable sewing projects I've ever made.  I'm totally one of those people attracted to anything miniature; it just makes me smile. 

On the hoarding front: I'm really hoping to find another doll bed to rehab.
