DIY Baby Doll Crib Bedding set

Does your girl love playing with baby dolls? Mine certainly does. She loves changing clothes, feeding the baby and all. She would even use her toy containers as the baby’s crib. That gave me the idea of making her somehow a crib but my mom wanted to give her that to Em as Christmas gift last year. She end up buying the Graco set that came with crib, stroller and feeding chair LOL. I can’t explain my girl’s excitement. As that was decided and I had already started my girl’s Duvet Cover Set, I also thought it would be cute to make matching baby doll crib bedding set. And so I did.

It was a fun project to make mostly because it didn’t take as long as the duvet cover one LOL. This took me about 2 or 3 hours and a lot of love.

Since the doll doesn’t actually have mattress or duvet, I just made kind of a mattress for the crib with built in sheet LOL and a quilt with the exact same pattern as the duvet cover. Made the pillows and went ahead and wrapped it!!!! I was so excited; I knew she would love to have her baby’s crib and even more a whole bedding set.

Fold the edges of your back fabric about 2 cm and glue it to the back of the board to cover all the ugly ends from fabric E. Use a lot of hot glue here LOL.

Moving on to the quilt.

Stitch together lengthwise fabric A with B and then B with C, repeat A, B and C. In my case, I had as fabric A the flower one, as B, the dark Pink polka Dot and as C, the White one. Took the photo backwards by mistake.

The whole thing should measure 50×28, if it doesn’t, adjust by stitching a few millimeters between fabrics.

Then place together front and back right side together and stitch edges leaving one side open.

Cut a bit the corners and turn it right side out. Press.

Insert batting. It should be tight inside.

Fold edges towards inside edging the batting. Pin in pace and stitch 1/2 cm from the edge.

Finally, stitch close to each fabric seam along the quilt.

Now, onto the Pillows.

Main Pillow.

First fold fabric B in half. Fold a hem in fabric E. Place them on top of fabric C layering fabric B and C as follows. Make sure fabric E is aligned to fabric C on the edge. Pin in place.

Then, stitch together fabric B, C and E by the fabric E folded edge.

Now lay your top layer onto the bottom layer right sides together and pin all the way around on 3 sides and about 5 cm of the 4th side. This will leave a pocket to fill it up.

Next, stitch all around the edges of the pillow except for the opening leaving 1/2 cm seam allowance.

IMG_8382

Fill it up with your stuffing and stitch the pocket to close the pillow.

Finally, repeat the 3 last steps for the other 2 pillows.
