We were acquiring some of the Madeline dolls through ebay purchase for our daughters birthday when we reached our budget quickly. I so wanted to add the doll case to the gift. I finally decided that it looked like something I could make my-self- since they were getting SO pricey at auction. So after much hiding in a very small closet, working in the wee hours of the night/morning, burning myself with the hot glue and tasting modge- podge on my fingers constantly-here is what we have. Two shoe boxes attached to one another with a duct-tape hinge (did i just make that up?) decoupaged all over and edges sealed off with hot glue and grosgrain. Our other daughters knitted blankets for the dolls and made a stuffed Genevieve with accessories. After all Madeline is nothing without her Canine !

The above is Ms. Clavel in her bedroom Wink

Made ties so that the dolls don't shift on the way to gra'mas house and a little draw-string bag for all of the accessories that need to taken along. The girl's use the inside as Madeline and her friends bedroom, and the back is set up as Ms. Clavel's room.
SO TAKE THAT EBAY ! I did it my own @%$# SELF  Grin
