Your 18-inch doll is sure to have sweet dreams when you custom design a bed just for her with our Suite Dreams Collection!

This PDF project download is the first release in the collection and includes instructions for building a PVC bed frame with attached headboard and footboard. Options include two bed sizes - twin and full - as well as three headboard and footboard combinations, including simple, curved and ladder styles. Tips for prepping your pipes are 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. The bed frame is designed to accommodate two stacked mattresses, making it easy to add a bed skirt using other patterns in the Suite Dreams Collection.
