Homemade Baby Doll Bassinet


September was pretty much busy, busy, busy around here.

However, I did manage to get one or two things accomplished outside of blogland...

I made this baby bassinet for my baby who is turning two this month.

She doesn't go anywhere without her best friends, her two stuffed Mouses, so I thought she could use something stylish and sweet to carry them in.

I used my friend Elizabeth's Baby Doll Bassinet tutorial over at Twelve Crafts Till Christmas.

Actually, when I made mine, I used pre-quilted, double-sided fabric instead, and followed her pattern just starting at the "outside".  Anyway, it was super fast and easy to sew--even quicker because I skipped making the lining.  I plan on adding a personalized tag with my daughter's name on it and the date before I give it to her.  I also plan on making another one for my other daughter using the same fabric...but I'll make it with the blue side out this time!

Anyway, if you can sew even a little bit and you have a little girl, you should totally make this for a birthday or Christmas gift.  Elizabeth actually has tutorials for making a matching diaper bag and even cute little "wipes".  It's adorable...Check it out!


And remember to enter to win this week's giveaway of the book "Jesus Calling" here.

  1. Adorable. I can't believe she's almost two! It seems like only yesterday Henry sat on her at playgroup right after she was born...

  2. Oh my goodness, that is so cute. Too bad I can't sew at all, and I have all boys. But if I had girls, I would learn to so just so I could make one!
