"Bebe" Bed

Kate loves her new “bebe”. She has started giving it nice wet kisses too! For her birthday we gave her a new doll bed for her bebe from ikea. I painted it white and thought it would be fun to make a quilt to go along with it. Although this project may have been more for me than kate—she doesn’t quite get that the “bebe” goes in the bed—hopefully in a few more months she will like playing with the doll bed. For now it looks pretty cute in her room. Paul’s mom, Leslie, helped me pick out the fabric while we were visiting in Denver and I’m happy to have some left over for future projects. {maybe doll clothes?}

The quilt was very simple and came together quickly. For the mattress and pillow I used a piece of fabric and batting. Having kids makes for a lot of fun sewing projects, but having a little girl makes them even more fun!

Awesome quilt Jill. It looks simple but it's still pretty precision sewing to get everything to fit together perfectly--sooo cute. Can't wait to see your next project.

So cute Jill! Ok, when do you find the time to do all this stuff? Another question...why do I have to do a word verification to leave a comment? Did you set it up that way?

Kate has been going to bed early lately (around 6) because she's still getting used to taking 1 nap so I do it then while Paul studies. Not having 3 kids helps too! I didn't set up the word verification... not sure why it does that. I'll look into it.
