Barbie Comforter Set

When I was working as a para at my former high school, one of the other paras found out that I could knit and crochet and asked me if I would make her some Barbie doll clothes and accessories for her and her grandchildren. Since I'm always up for a challenge, I accepted and the next day the para came to school with a huge folder full of patterns and a garbage bag filled with yarn. So, I've been doing a LOT of Barbie knitting and crocheting lately.

For my first Barbie project, I made a Barbie Bed Spread and Pillows. My co-worker had already created the pillow shapes and mattress out of some craft form, so all I had to do was crochet. I used Sugar n' Cream Ombres and Prints yarn in Spring Fling and Lavender, an H hook, and the Fashion Doll Bed Spread & Pillows pattern (available for free online). Here's how it turned out:




Since I can't model and pose with the bed myself, here's "Sarah Barbie" testing it out.



I think it turned out beautifully.
