Where have all the beds and blankies gone?

Once upon a time, I had a job I didn't like. I decided to see if I could make my way in the world by selling the doll beds, quilts and linens that I created in my spare time. I started a website and named it Beds-n-Blankies.

Since I had never sewn doll clothes, I asked my sister if she would make some pajamas and robes for my dolls to wear while they modeled my bedding. Eventually, I got tired of always seeing my dolls dressed in nighties so I asked if she would make a couple dresses... And some tops and bottoms... And a few costumes... I began to feel like a mooch, always asking her for more clothes. I decided I needed to be self sufficient and learn how to sew my own and with a lot of guidance and tips from my sister, my doll clothes sewing skills gradually improved.

It didn't take long before I figured out how to modify sewing patterns, which led to drawing and drafting my own designs. Combining these new skills with my quilting background and passion for coordinating fabrics and textures, my dolls' wardrobes expanded to more than I could ever use. I listed a few things for sale and was soon selling more clothes than quilts.

I still love quilting and when I finish creating all the doll clothes designs that are begging to be made, I will return to my roots; Beds-n-Blankies. (Est. 2005)

Frequently asked questions
What size doll does this fit?

Do all 5'5" people wear the same size? No! The size of 18" dolls can vary just as much as the size of people. Some brands are quite thin while others are very plump. Even dolls within the same brand line may vary in size based on when they were manufactured.

My doll clothes are specifically designed to fit 18" American Girl & Boy Dolls but it is very snug on my older, chubby/husky dolls.

It will also fit most 18" Our Generation, My Life As, My Sibling/My Pal, Gotz, Madame Alexander, My Imagination, Springfield and similar sized dolls. Some things will be large on Journey Girls.

It will not fit Boy Story, Carpatina, Magic Attic, Kidz-N-Cats, BFC Inc. unless otherwise stated.

Please contact me if you have questions or need measurements.

Is this safe for children?

Listing descriptions will state the recommended ages. Many items are safe for children, however, some things are made specifically for adult collectors and older, responsible children (13+) for display purposes and gentle play only. Please purchase and play responsibly.

Can you make more?

Sometimes... Contact me if you want to order multiples or a color or item that is sold out and I'll do my best to help you.

How is it made?

All items are individually hand crafted by me, in my smoke and pet free home. I take pride in creating well fitting, durable clothes that are professionally finished and beautiful -inside and out. Clothing, jewelry and accessories are made with high quality materials, well practiced techniques and meticulous attention to detail.

Please note that period items are not historically accurate.

I test materials for bleeding and crocking. However, due to the nature of vinyl, dyes and fabrics, staining may occur and it is highly recommend that you check and change your dolls frequently, no matter who makes your doll clothes.

When will it ship?

The listing descriptions state my current processing time. Most orders ship in 1-3 business days.

Some items and are made AFTER they are purchased and paid for. This allows me to offer a greater variety of products, colors and styles. These orders usually ship within 1 week but during busy periods, it may take 6 weeks or more. Orders are queued as they are received. If you need your order in a hurry, please contact me before you purchase to see if I am able to meet your deadline. Your patience is greatly appreciated and I'm sure you will find my products are worth the wait.

Upgrading to Priority Mail only involves the USPS and does not make me sew/craft faster!

How will it ship?

I ship via USPS First Class Mail. Large orders ship Priority and very expensive orders may require a signature. Most orders arrive 3-5 business days after you receive the shipping notification but it may take 10+ business days for delivery. Please contact me if your package does not arrive after 7 days and I will start a Missing Mail Report with the USPS.

Packages marked "Delivered" are no longer insured.
If stolen mail is a problem in your area, please ask about upgrading your order to include a Signature Confirmation (an additional $2.65) which may help reduce the risk of theft.

My order arrived damaged. What do I do?

All orders are carefully inspected prior to being wrapped and packed for safe shipping. If something is damaged in transit, please keep all items INCLUDING the packaging it arrived in and contact me immediately. My insurance requires your cooperation, including a written statement and photos of the packaging it arrived in and the damaged item, before I can send a replacement or issue a refund.

Returns and Cancellations

Care instructions

Most clothing items are hand washable unless otherwise stated in the listing description.

For best results: Hand wash in cool water with mild detergent. Hang to dry. Press with a warm iron and a pressing cloth if needed.

Use caution when ironing. Some embellishments, threads and fabrics (especially faux leather) will melt.
