My niece's birthday is coming up - so I thought I rip a page from my friend Angela's book and SouleMama's and make a Prince and the Pea doll set.
Actually, it seems quite a lot of crafty people have been doing this. A blog search can yield a bounty of results. And although my buddy made a paper doll princess to go with the mattresses, a did see someone make a cloth doll and that reminded me of an awesome doll pattern I had seen on the Purl Bee site.
There are times when it's awesome to be me. And this was one of them because, I had the felt, I had the embroidery thread, I had the stuffing, and I had all the fabric swatches I needed to make the little mattresses. I even had a small green pom-pom which I sewed on the bottom mattress to be the pea!
All I had to do was buy the book - and I opted for The Princess and the Pea by Lauren Child because she's just so much fun. And I had to put it all together - which, wasn't the smallest of tasks - but it was fun too.
Now, my niece is only turning two and I have NO IDEA what two-year-old girls are into. So I hope she likes it.
