American Girl Doll Bed and Linens!

Okay.  SO, how overdue is this post?  This was a joint effort that my Dad and I made for his granddaughter/my niece, Miss Kate, for Christmas.  Kate had a AG doll named “Lexi”, but we knew she was receiving another AG doll.  My Dad made a trundle bed so the new doll had a nice bed to sleep on, too!   Too cute!   My Dad constructed the bed and even came up with his own design-he made the pattern for it!   I love the trundle bed because he used basketweave molding and it looks like rattan/wicker and SO girly!! 
I made ALL the linens. Whew…. But I honestly had SO SO much fun sewing this all up.  The theme was brown and pink to match Kate’s room.  Once my Dad had most of the bed constructed, I took measurements from top to bottom and began my own pattern making!  I think I may have gone slightly overboard, but my niece is such a girly-girl(and so am I) so it had-to-be!  This was my first quilt and I am pleased with the way it came out.

All the bedding-I want my bed to look like this!  Love those little throw pillows!

Next life I want to come back as an American Girl Doll!  I really had a lot of fun making this and it was really cool creating it with my Dad!  It was a team effort of 2 very intense hobbyists! 
Night, Night Lexi!
