A friend gave a sister 3 different doll beds including cradle and Barbie bedroom unit. At our Thanksgiving visit, she passed them to me for my granddaughters. I took some measurements and quickly covered 2 mattresses and made 2 blankets and pillows. I thought a darker color paint would show less dirt so decided to paint the Barbie unit.
After painting the Barbie bedroom furniture, I worked with fleece. I have lots of pieces. My younger granddaughter asked for a gold hat and pink mittens. The simple fleece hat was made using a free pattern from FleeceFun.com I just couldn't leave it plain so added a flower shape.
The mittens and pompom hat were made using a free pattern from DIY-crush.com. I am a little concerned about the mitten fit. The thumb and fingers look long but I will see when they get on. I’m sure I can make them smaller if needed. Another site recommended tracing the child’s hand to make a pattern.
I have started the quilting on the Blue, Yellow, and Green UFO. So far I have done a lot of stitching-in-the-ditch to stabilize the quilt. I spray basted and used safety pins, but I have still had to be careful using the walking foot working on the puffy wool batting. I want to do free-motion quilting after I make a plan for each block and am considering feathers in the green setting triangles.
