I Am Seriously Thinking About Starting a Doll Line

Doll Quilt, mattress, pillow and rug.

I got so much satisfaction making this little set, that I am seriously thinking about starting my own line of doll products.

The tops of the quilt, pillow and rug were made all from my black and white scraps.

I used my stash fabric for the sashing, backing and the decorative bubbles. Mattress was made from one Fat Quarter and filled with batting scraps.

Guess what I used as the doll bed? I think this is/was a wine rack. Found it at the Salvation Army Thrift Store for 2.99. Love it!!

I so wanted to start on a second set like this in a different color but resisted. I need to work on some of my already thought about projects. But I will swing back to this set later and make more.

I could call this set Bubbles. I thought about Target but that is already taken. The circles with double layers look like daisies.

What do you think? Are you good at naming stuff? :D

  1. You certainly have a knack for matching fabrics in your projects. You have made so many doll bed sets already. If they are selling…well I guess that’s your answer as to …starting…a doll product line. I’d say you have a great start already.

    Nope, I’m not too good at names.

      Hi Carol and thanks so much.

      Nope, I haven’t sold any yet. But I haven’t offered any of them for sale yet. LOL!! Can’t sell them unless I list them, right!! Hopefully I will get a feel for what sells and what doesn’t at my craft show. :D

    I think this is my favorite doll set that you’ve made! I absolutely love the color combination and the circles! This is beautiful Donna!!! I think you absolutely should start a doll line! All of the doll sets that you’ve made have been absolutely adorable!!!

      Thank you, Lennette. I think of you every time I quilt something. You are all over my craft room. Your magazines. Your fabric. I have you to help guide me along. :D

  3. These are adorable! I think Bubbles is an excellent choice in names. I love to make small things so this gives me ideas for myself and my little shop. Keep creating!

      Hi Dorothy. I think Bubbles is a good fit too. I had a lot of fun making that set. I have been thinking of other designs and will get started after my craft show is over. Next week.

      Thanks for commenting on my blog. Appreciate it.

    I think you should start selling your doll sets. They are beautiful and any little girl would be happy to have one. Plus they are unique!!
