Well ... we found this pattern as two play kitchen set were being constructed. Irresistible design! And the bed came together very quickly. Two changes: per other comments, removed one vertical slat from the headboard/footboard (wanted the narrower width), and put an extra brace in the middle of the bed (just in case it gets stepped on or sat on).
Also used the pattern for the 18” Doll Mattress Tutorial. Skipped the buttons for tufting and simply sewed in 8 little Xs with embroidery floss.
This bed is for a granddaughter with a birthday in a few days .... and I’ve already started cutting out a second set for a granddaughter with a birthday in a couple of months. Happy to say that all of the bedding/linens are handmade; the pillows include lace and ribbons from two family weddings. You just can’t help but smile when you look at one of these finished farmhouse beds!
