Suite Dreams Collection: Curved Canopy Bed PVC Pattern for 18 Inch Dolls

1   |  

Sweeten up your 18-inch doll's bedroom with this traditional curved canopy bed from the AptOne8 Suite Dreams Collection.

This PDF project download includes instructions for building a curved canopy bed frame from PVC pipe. Tips for prepping your pipes are included, as well as step-by-step construction photos to help with assembly. No power tools needed!

Also included are pattern pieces and detailed instructions for creating a foam mattress with a fabric cover. The cover features a zippered opening for easy removal and laundering. Quilted fabric is recommended for a more realistic look, as well as the addition of optional piping around the edges. The bed frame is designed to accommodate two stacked mattresses, making it easy to add the included pleated bed skirt. Also included are instructions for a matching pleated canopy top.

This bed is compatible with the AptOne8 Suite Dreams Collection: Basic Bedding Set, available separately at Pixie Faire, which will help you create fitted and flat sheets, a pillowcase, a reversible comforter and an alternate bed skirt.

I had to order some

I had to order some of the special PVC parts before I can assemble it, but the parts won't be here until tomorrow. They (Matilda Jo) mailed them over the holiday weekend so that I would receive them in 2-3 days. I give them 5 out of 5 stars *****
