This full-color PDF download includes instructions for building a CPVC bed frame with attached headboard and footboard. Tips for prepping your pipe is included, as well as step-by-step construction photos to help with assembly. This project is easy enough for most beginners … 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.
Looking for an easier option with no zipper? Check out our alternative “Easy No-Zipper Doll Mattress” tutorial designed especially for use with this pattern!
