I found a doll bed at a local church's yard sale a few months ago. I bought it because I remember my niece's doll slept in a cardboard box. I promised her that if I found a bed at a yard sale, then I would send it to her. I could afford this little gift and I knew that I had enough material at home to make a mattress, pillow, and blanket to go with the bed.
The bed needed a few repairs, tightening the ropes, re-staining the scratches, and gluing some of the joints. It still looks used, but I think my niece will like it anyway.
Here it is all done and ready to ship. I just need to find a box that it will fit in.
I used Red Heart Light and Lofty for the doll afghan. I don't like this yarn as well as I like the Lion Brand Homespun. The Lion Brand has fewer fluffies sticking out and is easier to knit.
