So, the poppies and cornflowers decal gave me an idea. This would be 'Poppy's Bed' - Poppy being an as yet unmade rag doll.
The bed's ready for her though!
A quilt from small scraps, in blues and reds, a pretty pillowcase and a lace-trimmed, snowy white sheet (made from an old heavy cotton pilllowcase).
A made-to-measure mattress - old tablecloth on one side...
... and vintage ticking on the other...
...with buttoning to keep all the stuffing in the right place! It is quite worrying how much I enjoyed this! 'Get a life!' some might say!
But if it's okay for Guy Martin...
(after all, he made a mattress and waxed lyrical about it)
...it must be okay for me too, Boss!
Hmmm...Looks so snuggly that one of Miss U-t-B's old rag dolls has climbed in!
Don't get too comfy Christina - Poppy's on her way!
