Doll Bassinet

I did a lot of sewing this past Christmas. I bought a baby doll for three of our grandaughters, and made a bassinet, pillow and quilt to match their doll's outfits.  
This is one of the quilts I made.  Nine 5" squares sewn together, machine quilted and bound.

Doll quilts are so can use them for table toppers, placemats, mug rugs, centerpieces, or even as doll quilts :)

I love this little bassinet.  I made two this color.  

When I was sewing these bassinets with their little pillows and quilts, I wanted to buy a doll of my own so badly just so I could see how sweet it looked lying in its own little snuggly bed.

I made one like this.

I was fortunate enough to see one of my grandaughters open her gift.  Charlotte was pretty happy!

Charlotte takes her baby with her when she goes grocery shopping.

Charlotte loves feeding her baby, she is such a good Mommy :)

Reagan likes her doll too!

Reagan carries her bassinet like a purse!  Ha ha!!

Reagan is so precious with her little doll, she is a good Mommy too.  Grandchildren are a blessing

  1. oh cute! the girls look so happy with their goodies!

  2. I remember I made several of those for my girls when they were little. The pattern looks exactly the same. What a fun grandmother you are to spoil them so.

  3. Charlotte really does love hers! Kennedy loves to play with it too! Thanks for making such beautiful gifts!!!

  4. Reagan loves to play with her doll set. She puts the pillow on the bassinet, lays her doll down, and then covers the doll with the quilt. Then repeat...over and over. She will be that for 30 minutes... Thanks Grammie!

  5. Oh so excited to sew a doll set like this to go with the baby doll clothes I'm making ! Please explain "bound" edges on the quilts? Did you use blanket binding ? Debra

  6. It's very straightforward to find out any matter on net as compared to books, as I found this piece of
    writing at this website.
