little Valentine bedding

As a birthday present, I received some beautiful voile
and a very cute valentine's day print.
And I knew exactly what I was going to make:
Valentine's day bedding for Miss C.'s doll.


She has been using her bed (from Ana's tutorial) a lot,
and so have her dolls!



Here is a picture of the print:


I used the panel of the left, with the big heart.
I used some batting and quilted it to get some puffiness.


It started to get a trapunto effect,
like a super puffy comforter!


I stitched some ruffles on both long sides
and  I sewed  the back, with right side together,
leaving a small opening to turn it right side out.
I then top stitched all around.


Of course, the old pillow cases were totally wrong for the new color scheme!
So I made some new ones with hot pink (same as the comforter lining)
and green polka dot.
I based my pillow cases on this tutorial by From An Igloo.


No bed would be complete without throw pillow!
I made a quick one using felt and cutting out a few different heart.


And last but not least: Breakfast in bed!
Life as a doll has some cool perks!


Actually sharing it with your girlfriends is even better!


Happy sewing!

Oh my Valentine, that is so cute! I fear I didn't get any Valentine sewing done this year and will just let it pass. Maybe next year! I'm STILL working on my daughter's quilt which isn't zooming along, either! Thanks for sharing!
