I scored this cute little baby cradle at a garage sale for $1. My dad painted it white (it was a shabby chic sort of look before, and we all know that isn't my style!) and reinforced the legs with some L brackets, and voila, a nice baby cradle!!
The cradle also came with a mattress and pillow. Both were made with ticking, stuffed with stuffing, and covered. Whoever made this was into details- look at the decorative stitching on the pillowcase!
After making this quilt, I had a few small 1 1/2" strips of fabric left over. Since the cradle was all spiffy, I needed to make a little quilt that matched. I just gathered some scraps and whipped this guy up. It is a perfect fit and the little girls love playing with their dolls at grandma's house now!
