I dusted off my 40 year old sewing machine this morning and made a little comforter. As you can see it is much too stiff. I could just tuck it in under the mattress but I'd like to be able to have it folded nicely on top of the bed.
I used a soft,thin piece of flannel for the inside. I also have some quilt batting, mattress padding and some white t-shirt material. What do you think would make a nice lofty comforter? Like this.
Thanks to the Calvin Klein shirt, I discovered that a collar stay is perfect for making square corners. I've tried a needle, crochet hook, toothpicks and pointy scissors but this worked SO much better! I started to throw them away but now I'm glad I kept them. Maybe I'll be able to make some pillows now? :D
If you have any suggestions I would really appreciate them. I haven't made dollhouse bedding before so I need all the help I can get!
Thanks so much for all of your wonderful comments about the new bed! Hope you have a lovely day!
