Tot got a new 18″ doll from American Girl but we had only one doll bed. So Ned made another doll bed and I set about making a mattress for it. This is the new bed with the doll and the old mattress.
|I found a piece of 1″ foam but wanted to make a 2″ deep mattress. Luckily I had some batting lying around (okay, I have a whole roll of it) and adhered this to the foam.|
|I used a spray adhesive and a drop cloth to prevent the overspray from getting on the floor.|
|Then I stuffed the batting covered foam into the mattress covering. It fought me, but foam is no match for me.|
|I made a mattress covering out of some curtain interlining because it’s soft and cheap.|
|And ta da – mattress created. Now just some handsewing and the doll can sleep on a brand new mattress.|
