I made my toddler friend Snow a baby doll basket last year! I was inspired by Dana at Dana Made It. She posted a picture of a baby doll basket, and I was so inspired by that picture that I figured out how to make one. She then came out with a pattern for it! Dana is an incredibly talented blogger and sewer, and you should check out her site for lots of amazing tutorials, videos, and photos.
I originally was going to post a lot of photos of how I made this. Now that Dana has a pattern for it, I’m only going to post the funny cat photos of the progress (there are a lot of those!). Dana deserves to retain the credit for this cute design.
Both of my cats (but especially Gnome) thought that I was making them a great new cat bed. These photos still make me giggle – Gnome kept getting in the way during every single step of this project.
Oh look, Mom’s stepped away for a moment again…
This is for me, yes?
Hey, hey! I contrast so beautifully with the felt lining this. I think it’s for me, not my sister.
All done! And cat-free (for a moment).
Aha! Wrapping paper! It is truly mine now – both a comfy box and paper that crinkles when I touch it – it is clearly made for cats!
Sadly, Gnome was wrong. She got booted out before the wrapping finished. 🙂 ~Kell
