I had one  myself, when I was a kid, twenty or hundred Tongue years ago. Of course I made one for my own daughter! Grin

I simlpy took a ordinary shoebobox, cut the mainpart in a (for fashiondollz) comfort height, turned it up-side-down and add ruffles and stuff. For the roof I used four sticks and then I add the top of the shoebox. I padded it an covered it whit fabrics as shown.

Nice. When I was little my favorite part of Barbie was making furniture and designing clothes. You can make some pretty cool chairs out of old soda cans too.

My mom made me a bunch of Barbie stuff out of plastic canvas...it rocked! She even knitted clothes for them. I think I pulled out the needle and thread a couple times to make them clothes.

I remember making something like that with my dad out of balsa wood when I was little. I dont think it was as fancy, but it was sure fun to make and fun to play with! I think I broke it eventually....lol

Good job though!

If you got a really thin piece of foam to put on top of the cardboard, you could give your doll a soft rather than a hard surface to sleep on... just a suggestion though! ^_^

when i was a kid i only had barbies and an old house my grandfather had made for my aunt. My parents drew the line at the accessories -car, bed, etc. (although somehow i ended up with a pink toilet that - i kid you not - flushed.

anyway, i remember sewing little cushions for their balsa-wood beds, and building a drive-thru (they drove in my roller skates) McDonalds out of cardboard and tinfoil. Oh and building a swingset for the barbie babies out of tinkertoys.

this bed is WAY fancier than anything i ever dreamed up - cool!

Well, the design is of my girl... She picked the fabrics out of my leftoverfabricbox. And the cowish one did she buy all by her self from her own money. Grin
