Every doll's pet needs a bed and it's even better if it's stylish! I loved making some beds for Licorice and Meatloaf. Here's a simple way to make a bed for your doll's dog or cat too!
First you'll need some supplies:
- Craft Foam
- Glue & Glue Gun
- Measuring Tape/Ruler
This is a great craft to re-use leftover foam or fabric scraps!
1. Since each doll pet is different, you can put the pet on the craft foam to see how big you should make the bed. But I made one rectangle 6 inches long and 5 and half inches wide. One strip of foam 6 inches long and an inch wide. And, two strips 5 and a half inches long and an inch wide. You can also cut out another rectangle and stack them to make a thicker bed base. 2 & 3. Put glue on the edges of the rectangle. Place the smaller foam strips on the sides and the longer strip at the back. 3. Now you've made the bed! 4. To make the fluffy bed cushion, cut out two rectangles of fabric, each 6 inches long and 5 and half inches wide. 6. Flip the fabric over and put some polyfill or cotton in the middle. 7. Put the other piece of fabric on top and begin gluing the edges together 8. Just put the cushion on the bed and you're done!
You can either glue the cushion onto the bed and fold the fabric over the opening, or leave it unattached so you can switch out cushions. I love how you can make these beds with so many different colors and fabrics!
Licorice is ready to take a cat nap in her colorful new bed!
