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.

..yes, it IS like that! U should see my Craftingroom. Chaos, just chaos and Im the only one who can master that room.

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! ^_^
