DIY Doll bed in a Bin

I love my granddaughter with all my heart but we only had one doll cradle stored above the garage. If you missed that post, you can read it here. Unless I wanted to make or buy more cradles I had to think of a way to get a place for the other dollies currently without a proper place to sleep. Can you imagine?

I had some paper doll fabric in my stash that I got on a fabulous sale years ago. I had been dying to use it for quite a while. And couldn't dolls find a nifty place to sleep in a bin? That way it could double as a place to store the dolls, their stuff and be handy if you wanted to bring it somewhere!

If you know some bedless dollies out there, check out this tutorial on how to turn any bin into a dolly delight.
