A Lalaloopsy bed!

I missed getting a chance to post right before Christmas, things were busy busy around here! I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! Did you get the goodies you asked for?

Here at our house, we had a wonderful holiday. Everyone, especially my daughter Rylie, was very happy with Santa. She wanted a Lalaloopsy doll, SO BAD, and she hit the jackpot by getting two of them on Christmas morning! We happily welcomed Pillow Featherbed and Mittens Fluff N' Stuff into our home. That first night, as Rylie went to bed, she faced quite the dilemma. She had to choose one doll to sleep with, and place the other on the headboard with a piece of my fabric draped over it as a makeshift blanket. That made her sad, and I set out to fix that problem.

I decided the adorable little Lallallopsy dolls really did deserve their own bed. Rylie liked that idea very much, she didn't want them to be cold or scared on their own. So, I set to work. I used an empty boot box (one of my gifts this year!), my fabric stash, a few flowers and trims, an assortment of buttons, and my go-to adhesive Fabri-Tac. It took a few days, but I was able to make a sweet little bed, complete with a mattress, two sleeping bags, and two pillows.

The result of all that hard work? My baby girl is VERY happy. She loves the bed and I am told that Mittens Fluff N' Stuff and Pillow Featherbed absolutely adore it. That is why I do what I do!
