Ok. So Here is step by step of how I put this together and just because I was asked she got a new one tonight. lol. Now the tools you will need are:

1. Glue (I use tacky glue and hot glue. You can use both or either alone both work but you gotta hold things longer and wait for them to dry with the tacky but it is cheaper.... lol. )

2. shoe box. (any size will work. any style. The first one i used in a previous post was a puma shoe box and those are shaped funny.

3. old clothes from your kids ( i like to use old sleepers and anything that has a lot of space with no seems or designs but you are your own crafter)

4. scissors (cloth cutting)

Step one. Box...

Step 2

Sleeper, I cut the back out and make sure it will fit the top of the box.

Step 3

Trim up the sides so that you don't have as much fabric to deal with.

Step 4

Line the sides of the box with glue

Step 5

Start holding the sides up to the glue the best you can. Use clips or anything you have to help.

Step 6

Trim up to the edge of the box lid so ensure you can still close the box at the end.

Step 7

Glue up all the corners and edges that are lose and clamp them the best that you can to hold them. I used some hair clips.

Step 8

Take the bottom of the box and the fabric you want to cover it. I found a skirt that I liked that fit around it so less cutting and gluing. lol. then I glued the inside edges to the box on the inside and hold them there till they start to dry.

Step 9

Glue the bottom in the same fashion trying to make it as flat as possible.

Step 10

We wanna make the blanket for the bed.

I cut the back off this shirt.

Step 11

Hot glue to the inside of the top of the lid.

Step 12

I cut the ends of the sleeves off and turned them into two open holes. I then glued one side so that it would seal and then stuffed it with leftover sleeper parts. glued the second side in and voila a pillow. trim the edges of the blanket and you have a bed.

Now you can even keep barbie stuff in it.

Hope you all enjoy. Sorry about all the pics. It is easier to explain this way.

It looks very good. I love when people make Barbie-stuff instead of buying those expensive things which is often in a bad quality. I am sure your Barbie-bed is sturdy enough to be played with a lot.
