Cindy has recently gotten into "pretend" play and I love it! Pretending to eat food, feed her babies, and yup putting her dolls to sleep. Sometimes, I will find her putting her doll in her trash can and saying sleep. Poor doll, I guess she has to sleep in the trash can. I finally decided to just try and make her a doll bassinet and here it is!!
It is a little wonky since it is the first pancake flop but it get's the job done. I haven't given it to her yet because I still want to make a matching doll quilt and pillow. I got this idea from Dana at Made. She is amazing. She doesn't have a tutorial for it but mentioned that she used this plastic canvas for the sides. Image borrowed from Made.
So, I got some and just gave it a whirl and tried to figure it out. It isn't as nice as Dana's but she is a pro so I don't feel bad. The doll bed is good enough for me. It has handles so she can hold and carry the baby around and pockets for the baby bottle and a hair brush.
I also added a little squishy pillow mattress not that the doll will care but I just thought it looked cute. It fits her favorite doll perfectly! I am still debating about whether to make a pattern and tutorial. What do you think?
