Such a find! Carrie had just picked up this adorable little doll cradle and had contacted me to make a mattress/pillow set and bedding to fit it. With a minimum of discussion back and forth, she knew exactly what she wanted.
A pink/cream ticking stripe mattress and pillow.
A hand embroidered “ribbon and flower” sheet set with pink hand crocheted edging.
And a blanket made with the pink/cream ticking stripe. I thought this fabric would be too thick to be used this way and would end up more like a big pot holder. Actually though, in all the years I’ve used this fabric I had never tried it for anything but mattress and pillow sets. So I decided to give it a try and was very happy with the results. With a very thin batting and hand quilted it was softer and cuddlier than I expected. So many times customers have told me that they hate to cover up their pink ticking mattresses. And now there’s a way to have pink ticking on the top too. Thank you Carrie for the suggestion and little push.
And here’s the sweetest little doll cradle all ready to become a new family heirloom.
