We I've finally finished the little crib for my friends young daughter!
I brought this 1970's crib for a car boot sale last summer, the lady who sold it to me had cleared out her Dads loft space, as he needed to go into a residential home. There were lots of 70s toys and games and we had a good old chat about how great toys used to be (gosh, better stop there, sounding just like my parents!).
She was obviously very emotional about seeing all her old toys again, and the prospect of her Dad no longer living in her childhood home. I promised to take good care of it and breathe new life into it, I hope she would approve of what I've done!
My very own Teeny Tiny Tears is modelling for me today, do you remember these dolls? I loved her so much. When I first saw the crib I was amazed at how small it was, I'm not sure today's dolls will even fit in! Luckily original 1970's dolls do!
I've made a little quilt and pillow, and recovered the base....all in original 70s fabric......now all I have to do is, part with it!
What was your favourite toy? I was definitely a doll, tea set and teddy child...oh and roller skates, the silver and red leather ones, I went EVERYWHERE on them!
Now, I promised to show you the vintage sheet I found last week...
A double quilt and two pillowcases, in great condition, I'm not even sure if the quilt has been used that much, although the pillowcases are slightly faded. Don't you just love it when you find such treasures!
I've started my suitcase makeover and hope to finish later in the week. I'm going for a fabric cover this time, a little calmer than my last one, but with a jazzy interior!
