Here we go again with more tiny things...  Miniatures seem to be a popular theme here at DSC lately -- and I am just eating it up!  Today's project is no exception; I just adore how it turned out!! My daughter's Barbie is going to be sleeping comfortably and in style in her gorgeous new bed.  The scale of the striped fabric is perfection -- and the bed frame is just so cute.  Can you guess the source for my materials?  [Get instructions]

Project Estimate:

  • Two Zen Garden trays, $1
  • Pillow cover, $1
  • Eyelet trim scrap, on hand
  • White fabric scraps, on hand
  • Polyester batting scraps, on hand
  • Wood glue, on hand
  • Finish nails, on hand

Total:  $3 and up!
