Vegetable Hating Doll with Vintage Mattress Stack

I know I'm late to this party... I know there has been a trend for vegie hating fairytale dolls with mattress stacks since Mollie Makes published this article in June:

Very much inspired, I had intended to make a little set for Greta for Christmas. But time got away from me, as happens around here sometimes. Anyway, while i had Bluey home on holidays this week, I got to work on her


Vintage Sheet Mattresses, with a couple of other upcycled fabrics mixed


The little princess, with dirty face, already loved. I used vintage lace, hankerchiefs and linen for my princess and her clothing, pillow and quilt. A tiny salt dough "pea" and excitingly I bought a little wooden ladder, from this lovely lady http://www.etsy.com/transaction/107044599


Vintage lace crown


My Muse, Greta


Mini Me?





I'm really happy with the way she turned out, Greta's enjoying her too.

Check out Manda's Etsy shop here http://www.etsy.com/shop/TreefallDesign?ref=em

I do plan on sewing a carry / storage bag for her, like Manda did, and I will give that princess a wash soon too.
