I use "real" blush and apply it with a Q-tip and rub it in. We're talking "tiny" amounts of a product that gets in babies mouths all the time from Moms "loving" all over them.  I think it's harmless and I'm a pediatric nurse and very safety conscious.

I have a video tute on how to dress a plushie without a pattern and a doll would work just as well. Two simple measurements and a one piece dress. It's a glue gun project. Then make the child any outfit you choose in matching fabric

Here's the video link  Part One  http://youtube.com/watch?v=4taaPAjWVsA

Part Two  http://youtube.com/watch?v=a-bZDVDgtkk

Be sure to not to put any easily removable trim on the doll since the child is so young

My brother makes wooden puzzles for kids and he uses mineral oil - very safe.
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pretty Sassy Straw Purses on: July 29, 2008 10:47:07 PM
This is a really fun craft project for tweens and Moms. I bought these purses at a dollar store. They are very sturdy,with handles and lined in summer fabrics. They had some very "tacky" and cheap trim on them which I removed. I attached some appliques and used some thin ribbon to weave shells and wood beads around the top. I love the flip-flops!

This one is a simple summer theme.  Remember to really supervise tweens with the glue guns! They can also be used as decor. I put the beachy purse in my Tropical Florida bathroom and filled it with fancy disposable hand towels for guests!

I also made a video of this project   http://youtube.com/watch?v=3Pk4R5Y4zKc   and posted it on you tube

with my other crafty videos. (Crafster OK'd me to put my video links in my topics.)

I was asked to make a giant pair of witch legs for a prop in my daughters marching band half time show "Follow the Yellow Brick Road" I used chicken wire to shape the legs.  Theres a laundry basket in the heels and the feet are swim noodles tied together and trimmed to make the pointed toes. Batting here and there to get a smooth look and covered with vinyl, fabric and tons of duct tape for the stripes and overall strength. They had to be weather proof and tolerate being drug around for 3 months of shows. They became such an icon of the season that when the season ended -  they were snuck from house to house at night and dumped in peoples yards and on roofs  for 2 more months to tease and surprise all the band families. They were pretty shoddy by the end of their travels but we got a lot of laughs out of them.

Your bed is amazing  Kiss and adorable !! It reminds me of my favorite book " The Bed Book" by Sylvia Plath.  The only kids book she wrote I think. it's full of crazy wild beds that fly and shrink and you name it, but they are " not just your white little, tucked in tight little, nighty night little beds, instead......"  I recently started re-reading this book with my grandson and it's my obsession -- any way your bed could be one or the illustrations in the book !

Love the fabric!!!  When she is older you could use it to make her a princess costume or a Genie in a Lamp costume My Mom made my daughter  a Genie out fit and she played in it for several years Cheesy
