Doll Bunk Beds and Bedding

For Christmas this past year, we weren't 100% sure what to get Soprano for her 'gold' gift. Then we found this super cute, bunk bed set at Goodwill. It's made to fit 18" dolls and was only $6.97!
We knew it would be the perfect gift for her and her special doll.

It did need a little bit of dressing up though. The wood was in good shape except for some crayon marks on it. So Bass gave it a good sanding and replaced a few of the wood screw cap pieces. I gave it a couple of coats of white paint (that matches the trim paint in our house as well as Soprano's bedroom furniture.)
After the painting was done, it was time to tackle the bedding. I got some 1" foam to make mattresses for each bed. I used a soft, lilac gingham flannel to make envelope cases to cover the mattresses.

The pillow were left-over foam cut down and then covered with some clearance fabric. I sewed three little buttons on each pillow to keep them closed.
Then I made a top sheet from the same fabric as the pillows and stitched a strip of ribbon about 2.5" from the top for interest. The blankets are made of flannel too. I channel stitched it to create a quilted look and then finished the top edge with satin blanket seam binding.
A little more left-over foam and embossed fleece worked for the shams.
Two bedding sets perfect for a pink and purple doll-loving little girl! She loved it!
