Doll Easter Baskets



 Gather some ribbon, lace & any bric-a-brac you like.

A glue-gun, and the bottom of a plastic Easter Egg.


Cut ribbon to 6 inches.

Hot glue the ribbon first on one side...


Then the other.

 OH!  almost forgot! I glued a plastic ring on the bottom to help the basket stay up.
I large button would also work!


 Decorate the top of the egg/basket with more ribbon and lace
or whatever you like!

 I also added some small bows and ribbon roses.

And here they are.

I found small glitter eggs and tiny peeps at the craft store.
(although the peeps did not stand up very well : )
(And looked a little loopy)
anyway...

HAPPY EASTER!!

Baby doll cradle from a cardboard box


I got this 6" babydoll for 99 cents on ebay.
She came wearing this little lavender stripe dress and tites.
She was a bit musty smelling and sticky, so she got
a baking soda/water bath and I put her in a baggie with baking soda powder over night.

I made this little christening gown for her next day.

 For a little doll bed I started with a box slightly bigger than my 6" doll.
I cut off the lid and used it for a curved headboard and bonnet.

 Here is the headboard
 And here is the bonnet which is just bent around the curved top.

 Next I covered everything with fabric attaching with my glue gun.

 This next picture is the bonnet and headboard.
 I covered each piece separately, then glued them together.

 And here is the headboard added.
Now my bed is all covered in fabric.

I used lace and bric-a-brac and hot-glued them to my bed
over the canopy first, then around the bed.

Here is a detail of the back.
Not perfect, but fine for a toy doll!

 At this point I realized my lace was too long,
SO, I had this oatmeal box that I had saved and
decided to use it to make a rocker/stand.

 Cut in half and covered in leftover fabric scraps,
I glued it to the underside of my doll cradle.

Small pillows for bedding AND...
VOILA!
A doll and cradle for Skyler.

I made this cradle for a tiny doll, but this idea could work for any size doll!


 Back in the dollhouse...
 Look Julie!  Mom got me my own doll!!

She is SO cute!

 I think so too.

Skyler's Room

Hello everyone, I'm Skyler and I wanted to show you my new room, but first I have to tell you about my new family.  There are 8 girls BESIDES ME and 1 boy!  
We are all adopted and they have all made me feel so loved and welcome!  My new brother Martin just got his room done too, I found that out.  My new mom likes to find things and make them new and pretty.  Just look at my room!!

See?  what did I tell you?  Pretty huh?

Here is the right side of my room...

And here is the left side.
Mom made this pouf chair.

My new bed mom found at a thrift store for $4!!

Then she hand quilted this bedspread just for me!
I am so amazed too because I love butterflies and my quilt has butterflies...

AND this mobile has butterflies!

 Jose said I could keep her Cherry Jam doll until I get a doll of my own.
(Mom hinted that there might be a doll coming in the mail just for me!)

Here are my pretty sheets and pillows.

So, I just want everyone to know how happy I am and
how I love my new family AND my new room!
