The Princess and the Pea

I've been feeling quite crafty lately. With so many beautiful things at the Yvestown Fair, and an upcoming one this weekend which I'm pretty excited about, all I can thinks of is crafts! For now, it is all about The Princess and the Pea, one of my favorite children stories! I have a doll which was given to me by my husband more than 9 years ago. It has started to look down and worn, I don't know why really, it's not like she had a baby! But maybe it is because she's had the same mattresses since then (probably back pain?). So I thought I cheered her up by making her new colorful ones, an extra pillow and a crocheted blanket, after all she is a princess!

So inspired by issue #15 of Mollie Makes (here I go again with this magazine). I made her 7 more mattresses. The hardest part was picking the fabrics and getting the scary sewing machine out.

My princess is now happy as a pea (jaja), loves her new trousseau, and can't wait for a new coat of paint for her bed! She looks much more relaxed, doesn't she?

The before and after mattresses

I'm sure you've seen similar princess' around, mine is from Maileg (i love every single thing they make!) Am I too old to be having dolls? Nah! I don't think so! And do you have any dolls or any special toy that has always been with you, I'd love to know?

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Que cosa "'"MAS HERMOSA"........ Siempre es buena epoca para cuidar, renovar, y por que no? volver a "jugar" con "tus" munecas. Bello, muy bello.........

  2. I love your doll and the mattresses you've made for her:)

    Now, when I think of it, I don't think I played much with dolls...

    1. Yes, me too! When I was little dolls weren't that interesting. But I don't play with this one either, just make things for her, which is something I didn't do either when I was a kid!

  3. you are too cool for this world

    1. ayyy tan ridicula!! I'm too sexy for my shirt!!
