Build your 18-inch doll her own set of bunk beds from PVC pipe!

This PDF project pattern includes instructions to build a bunk bed just like you remember from summer camp featuring two stacked beds, each with its own fabric-covered foam mattress.

A bit narrower than the traditional twin bed and simple in design, this bed is perfect for a camp cabin or a smaller living space, especially since you can sleep two dolls at once! Removable center poles also allow this bed to be taken apart and used as two single beds.

The mattresses are made of upholstery foam with a zippered sewn cover to allow for easy laundering. Simply unzip the cover, remove the foam and toss the cover in the wash! Neat boxed corners on the cover add a realistic touch, with plenty of full color photo instructions to guide you through the construction process.
