Homemade Baby Doll Bassinet

September was pretty much busy, busy, busy around here.

However, I did manage to get one or two things accomplished outside of blogland...

I made this baby bassinet for my baby who is turning two this month.

She doesn't go anywhere without her best friends, her two stuffed Mouses, so I thought she could use something stylish and sweet to carry them in.

I used my friend Elizabeth's Baby Doll Bassinet tutorial over at Twelve Crafts Till Christmas.

Actually, when I made mine, I used pre-quilted, double-sided fabric instead, and followed her pattern just starting at the "outside".  Anyway, it was super fast and easy to sew--even quicker because I skipped making the lining.  I plan on adding a personalized tag with my daughter's name on it and the date before I give it to her.  I also plan on making another one for my other daughter using the same fabric...but I'll make it with the blue side out this time!

Anyway, if you can sew even a little bit and you have a little girl, you should totally make this for a birthday or Christmas gift.  Elizabeth actually has tutorials for making a matching diaper bag and even cute little "wipes".  It's adorable...Check it out!

And remember to enter to win this week's giveaway of the book "Jesus Calling" here.


  1. Adorable. I can't believe she's almost two! It seems like only yesterday Henry sat on her at playgroup right after she was born...

  2. Oh my goodness, that is so cute. Too bad I can't sew at all, and I have all boys. But if I had girls, I would learn to so just so I could make one!

  3. I can't sew a stitch, but that is the cutest thing ever.


  4. how fun, too bad my grand daughters are past the age of dolls-in Jr. High now! Time moves quickly.

  5. Very cute! I like the choice of fun colors.

  6. I've been thinking and thinking about those tutorials of hers. I think I may try to do one of those as well.

  7. How cute!! I bet your daughter is going to LOVE it!

  8. That is just the thing I need! Thanks for posting. We are going with homemade gifts for Christmas this year and this will be for my 16 month sweetie who loves babies.

  9. ooh..she's a lucky one to have that to tuck her babies in!!
