Description

My great niece, Holly, just turned four years old. She has American Girl Doll Emily who did not have her own bed. So for Christmas, I ordered a cute white bed with roses on the headboard and footboard, then used Camille Roskelley's mini dwell pattern to make a quilt for the bed using a charm pack and some yardage from Aneela Hoey's Hello Petal collection. I enlarged the borders just a bit so it would fit correctly on the bed. The bed came with some pillows, which I covered with more fabric from the Hello Petal collection.

This weekend Holly and her mom and dad came up for a visit and Holly got to open her gift! She loved it (as you can see from that happy smile!).

This was such a fun little project!

Oh Wendy, this is just too cute. Love the bed, quilt and little pillows. You pulled the whole thing together so nicely. In fact, I think I want one for my very own. I have never seen a doll bed like this one. Wow, just great and I know she was thrilled.
