My tastes have changed a bit since then but I never stopped loving doll beds and bought quite a few for my daughter to play with when she was young. This was what got me started making doll quilts for her, all those beds needing blankets of some sort. I now have a few wooden doll beds of my own and I use them to display some of the small quilts I've made.
Doll shown is the "Disney doll" made from a Gail Wilson pattern. She's one of my prized possessions. Recognize her? She appears in my book Prairie Children & Their Quilts.
Years ago, at an antique shop somewhere in Michigan or Wisconsin, my husband found a small antique pocket dictionary (measuring 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" ) which I discovered happens to fit her perfectly.
Yes, she reads it every night before bedtime and so she's very educated . . . .
Cradles count too, don't they?
This mini-cradle is too small for a quilt so it holds my scraps or sometimes I keep it on my sewing table and fill it with fabric for a new project I'm working on.
