Free Doll Accessory Pattern (May 18th, 2018) Help Us Spread The Word

Hi everyone, 

On Friday (May 18th) we are highlighting the work of Elizabeth Williams, creator of the Ladybug Doll Quilts pattern collection, by offering her brand new Buttons In Boxes scalable quilt pattern for free on the first day of its release. This adorable quilt pattern compliments her new scalable mattress and pillow pattern nicely and would be a delightful addition to your doll's bedroom set!  This new pattern will be free one-day-only and then it will return to the regular price.

More About Elizabeth and Ladybug Doll Quilt Patterns, (in her own words):  "My love of dolls began in 1978 when I received my first My Friend Mandy® doll, who soon became my closest friend and confidant. I spent many wonderful, magical childhood years with Mandy, and have no doubt that she enriched my life, helped build my imagination, and provided emotional comfort to me through the transitions of childhood. When I adopted my daughter in 1999 I began to quilt, and developed a love for fabric, thread, and the beauty of handmade quilts. I began to develop my own patterns, selling them to quilt lovers for over 10 years in my quilt pattern company. As my children grew and moved away from their childhood playthings, I moved closer to mine, falling back in love with dolls and their magic. My quilts grew smaller, and my quilt room became populated with the new recipients of those tiny quilts. Now I focus primarily on making doll quilts and doll quilt patterns, and am thrilled to make them available through Pixie Faire. And Mandy? Well, she still has the top shelf in my quilt room, but is thrilled to have so many new friends to model our doll quilts with!"

More About The Buttons In Boxes Quilt Pattern: Grab your button jar and fun fabrics - this is a quick and easy pattern that you can make in about an hour! Make this charming patchwork quilt for 18" dolls such as American Girl®, 11-1/2" fashion dolls such as Barbie® or even 6-1/2" mini doll. Embellish with buttons for a charming, playful look, or make as-is for younger children.
While the instructions in this pattern fit standard doll beds for 18", 11-1/2", and 6-1/2" dolls, you can vary the number and size of blocks and borders to fit virtually ANY doll bed.
Make in any fabric color or theme to create unique looks for your doll homes. And whip up the accompanying throw pillows for a dressy, finished look to your beds!
Have an hour? Make a quilt! Happy Quilting!

This is an adorable doll bed quilt.. Not to put a damper on it but if you have little ones (under 3 yrs) be cautious of using real buttons as they could pose a choking hazard. At some of the large craft/fabric stores you can purchase felt “buttons”.

Thank you for the cute pattern this week. It is so adorable with cute spring prints. You could make these to fit each season using seasonal fabrics. one to look like Spring, one with Summer prints, one with Fall prints and finally Winter or Christmas prints. Then your doll can change her bedding with the seasons. Thank you so much. Love Buttons on it too. Awesome
