One day, Dustyfeet decided that it was time for her dollies to have a nap:
And her frogs:
It turned out there was a reason for this sleepy theme:
And it also gave me an idea:
After Dustyfeet’s nap, I got out the scissors and cut up this box. I made the box a bit smaller and I cut end pieces with one curved edge (these were actually a bit TOO curvaceaous – I would recommend a more subtle curve if you try this):
I stuck it all together with the glue gun (my most recent crafting acquisition, and I can’t believe it took me so many years to get one – if you like crafting at all, get one – they’re brilliant):
Now Baby Doll can sleep in comfort in a rocking cradle:
I did intend to get out some paints and so we could decorate this, or maybe even cover it in a few layers of papier mache, but sadly our next door neighbour sat in it and it didn’t survive. I’ll probably make another one sometime though; there are always dollies around here just desperate for a nap, it seems!
