This pattern was created out of my love for camping. During my childhood my parents and close family members would all go to a National Forest Campground in California. Every year we counted down the days till we could leave. Prior to leaving my parents would get out all the camping equipment and organize the bedding, the tent, the items for cooking in our makeshift kitchen once we arrived. It was a wonderful adventure, and my parents created a feeling of excitement in all of the preparations.
We arranged our belongings carefully in the car, till there was barely room to sit in the car! The memories are wonderful! I was allowed to bring whatever I wanted as long as it fit in an oversized tote bag. I brought dolls and their little camping supplies. I asked my mom to make fabric sleeping bags, blankets, pillows, little towels, and took fabric to make a small tent, and so many little things it would be hard to list them all. But I fit them in my tote bags.
This pattern shows very simple directions to make the items shown, And the tent! It is the easiest thing ever to make! ruffled and lined sleeping bag, no zipper needed. A matching pillow. A small tote bag that can fit dollhouse toiletries, or towels, or items that would be perfect for camping. A canvas tote made for carrying firewood.
**Also included are ideas and suggestions for creating a small campsite with everyday items for a wonderful playtime when camping or at home.
This is the first of many Glamping patterns-Camping and Glamour for dolls! How fun to go camping or just playing with a camping inspired theme at home! As a child I played FOR HOURS with my dolls, creating little campsites, driveways made with small rocks on each side. Waterfalls (shhhh don't tell my mom) from pitchers of water poured over boulders that were tediously stacked on one another. Stuffed bears acted as nice animals lurking near the campsite my dolls were sleeping in. I drew food on paper, cut it out and placed it on tables for my dolls to eat. They slept in their sleeping bags, dressed in the tents I made using sheets draped over chairs. I cut out little maps for them to find their way around the national parks. Many more ideas...but I'm saving those for the Ebook on Glamping with your Dolls available later this summer! (2016)
