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!
Best of July + August
