What materials did you use? 23" x 17" plastic tote w/snap on lid, various coordinating cotton prints, Warm & Natural batting, lace

What are you most proud of? The overall design. It is just the cutest way to organize a little girl's dolls and doll clothes in one place, but adds a place to put 'dolly' at night or during nap time.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a very simple project, but does require fairly accurate measurements. I 'channel quilted' the little mattress, and machine quilted the little quilt. The little pillow is 'stuffed' with fiberfil, The bottom sheet is 'fitted' at all four corners, and the top sheet is 'fitted' at the bottom two corners with the top edged decorated with coordinating fabric and lace that matches the pillow case.

I did not use a pattern, but just looked at the one at the quilt show and pretty much 'figured' it out. The following link is for a similar pattern. I have not tried it, and so do not know what size tote they are using or how accurate the pattern is. Good luck, hope it works out for you.

I glued velcro on the front, back, and each side on the plastic tote and then matched it with velcro sewed on to the skirt that corresponded to the ones on the tote.

Do you know much fabric I should buy, or did you use what you already had? This one is much cuter than the one I saw for sale. Very nice. Hope,I can do as well for my granddaughter!

I used what I had in my 'stash'. Mattress probably 1/2 yard for front and back and a piece of batting to match. The 'bedskirt' is 1-1/2 strip of fabric across the 45" width of fabric (approx 64"). Probably another yard for sheets and pillow case and about 3/4 yard of several prints for quilt. Just estimating

Thank you. Not a quilter, my stash is all clothing fabrics like silk tweeds and woolens. Going to do this in flannels because of the cuter prints available where I am. Was guessing just about what you indicate for yardage. We'll see how it works!
