Hello there lovelies! First… HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING!
I’m excited to share my Scribble Shop Challenge project with you all today!
Remember this video where I vlogged about the challenge and the supplies I received?
Here’s a refresher in case you missed it…
I was sent a box of crafting supplies from the Scribble Shop online craft store. The challenge was to make something using as many of the supplies as possible. Winner of the challenge gets a prize!
The supplies I received included:
And of course, some yummy chocolates! I also made good use of the cardboard box the supplies came in AND the packing peanuts that were inside the box!
After weeks of debating the best project to try I decided on a doll bed. I’m an auntie with no kiddos of my own yet and a limited toy selection at my house… So when the nieces and nephews come to visit I need more kid friendly entertainment!
To get started I cut the flaps off the cardboard box and made a doll headboard pattern on one flap piece by penciling on the design I wanted, then cutting it out with scissors. I traced the pattern onto one end of the box as the headboard, then on the other end (a little lower) for the foot board and carefully cut them out with an Xacto Knife.
The freshly cut out box then received a coat of the chalkboard paint.
While my box was drying I sewed together the square pieces of fabric into a small baby bed blanket and ‘mattress’ cover. Because every princess needs a feather pillow, I stuffed two of the squares with feathers, then sewed them together as well.
A plastic bag stuffed with the packing peanuts, then tied closed makes a ’mattress’ fit for a princess.
The princess bed received some pretty embellishments in the form of the Martha Stewart Glitter, the glitter brads, and some carefully placed feathers in blue and yellow (to match the bedding of course). Finished, all our princess bed needed was a princess girl and her princess dolly to test it out!
So, there you go! My Scribble Challenge Princess Bed! The only thing I didn’t use was the wool roving… SO my question to you is, HOW would you incorporate that into this project??
I did use the packaging though… So that should count for something… hahaha!
Oh, and of course, once our princess tried out the princess doll bed, we all shared the yummy chocolates!
Happy crafting lovelies!!!
