Baby Bedding

 My little niece Rakia is pretty cute. 
Even when she is a goofball.  (Or, especially then.)  So for Christmas I wanted to make her something super adorable.  She loves her baby dolls, so I thought I'd whip up a little bed for them to take a rest - here is my experiment!

 Sweet, huh?  I wrapped an empty clementine cake in fabric, then made a little mattress and pillow out of scraps (and filled with smaller scraps.  The project was basically free - since I already had all the materials on hand!
 To top it off and keep the little baby toasty warm, I made a reversible quilt.  I really hope Rakia likes it!  I think she will.

  1. Wow, that is so creative. I wish I could have the expertise to make my own baby bedding. I got all of mine at They still had a really good collection. I attempted to make my own baby bedding once, and the baby blanket turned out to be a disaster! You made a wonderful bedding and bed. Your little niece Rakia is adorable and oh so lucky!
