A (small) Project


Another great thing that happened this past weekend was the completion of a (very small) project! As a mom I really treasure my 'me time' for creative outlets like painting and sewing. I knew having a new baby meant projects would be on hold for a while, but this past weekend I got a little project finished that's been on my to do list for a while. I don't know if you remember this doll bed I got at a garage sale, but I've been wanting to make a mattress for it ever since I bought it. It didn't take very long at all but I was so happy to finally have it done. It's funny how the completion of a little project feels so good. So here it is.


For the inside padding I used two different layers. One of extra thick batting and the other being some foam the hubs brought back from work. Then I just made an envelope style pillow case enclosure out of the blue ticking fabric and ta-da! I think the blue ticking fabric looks vintage-y and cute....my husband thinks it looks prison-y. To each his own.


And look who stopped by to give the new mattress a little test run.
Silly Lamp.


Look at that sweet face....I think this might be my favorite Lamp picture yet.

  5. Oh my gosh...she is such a cutie pie. So tiny. The mattress is a little prisonny, but way cute. What can I say, we have the same genes. BTW I very much enjoyed the yogurt body wash while I was at your house. I think i just my pick myself up some.
