I receive many Custom requests for making Barbie, Monster High and Blythe doll bedding. It just seemed common sense to make a basic pattern that includes a mattress, ruffled comforter, large pillow sham and accent pillows. The fabric chosen is Shabby style. But it can be made with all white for a Shabby look, darker colors for monster high dolls, or even sparkly fabric for Barbie. The pattern itself is extremely easy. If you are able to sew a straight line, you will be able to make this simple pattern. In the picture the doll bedding is folded in half at the bottom of the bed, but it can be unfolded and used as a bedspread for the entire bed. I like the layered look, and like the look of several pillows. This bedding set could be made using all white fabric, and then pick a pretty coordinating fabric just for an extra comforter folded at the base of the bed for a popular layered look.
I collect doll furniture, paint it white and use it for the base of my doll bedding patterns. Doll beds can be found, painted
color of choice and used by themselves or in a doll diorama or dollhouse.
This is a Ginny Doll bed that is vintage. It is about 10 1/2" long. But the directions in this pattern are made for the mattress to be 11"-11 1/2" long for use on a Barbie or Blythe doll bed. I just squished the mattress into this bed frame for the photo!
The comforter ends up being 12" long by about 8"-10" wide depending on the width of ruffles. Two comforters can be made, one used as a bedspread to cover the bed, and a second one folded at the base of the bed like I have shown here.
I have made this pattern to be simple with photos and directions. Even a beginner sewer, or young child with parental assistance can sew this. I began sewing as a young 9 year old girl and have always loved sewing. I believe sewing and patterns should be a wonderful skill to enjoy.
Step by step guidelines, with pictures make this a very simple pattern.

I am able to refund as long as there is a valid reason for refunding. I am not however able to refund the cost of a digital download that you have access too. Nor am I able to refund the cost of my work when I have done a custom order with your measurements. I can give you store credit to purchase something else.
I had someone order 400.00 worth of products, and then cancel a few days later as I was mailing out their package. That is rough....especially if you just made your house payment!
