Try-It Tuesday: Doll Bedding

If you ask my mom pretty please, maybe she'll share a tutorial on how to make the bunk beds that she (with some help from my dad) made for my daughter for her 6th birthday. My mom said she would make the bunk beds for a birthday present if I made the bedding.

Cutting and sewing this is simple and only basic sewing skills are needed. I had found coordinating flannel fabrics in the remnants section (they sell remnant at 50% the current sale price) at JoAnn Fabrics. I will give you the measurements you need to make it to fit the bunk beds, but I didn't quite have the width, with it being a remnant, but it was close enough so I was ok with it.

Padded Mattress
20"x11" 2 pieces of fabric
19 1/2 x 10 1/2 1 piece of batting

5"x10" 2 pieces of fabric
4 1/2 x 9 1/2 1 piece of batting

15"x10 2 pieces if fabric

To make the padded mattress or pillow: Place right sides of fabric together and place batting on top of the top wrong side. Pin Together. Stitch around 3 sides. Turn right sides out with batting in the center. Fold over raw edges to the inside. Pin down. Stitch fourth side.

To make blanket: Place right sides of fabric together and pin together. Stitch around 4 sides, leaving an unstitched gap of 1-2". Pull the right sides through this gap. Fold in the gap so the raw edges are in the inside and stitch closed.
