Barbie and Taylor Swift Guitar

I was going through some clearance items at Walmart and came across a guitar ornament.  I picked up the box and it was a guitar by Talyor Swift.  My head began to spin of thinking of how this is just the right size for a Barbie doll.  The sticker on the box had $17.50 but I only paid $3.50 for it. Sometimes we have to use our

I removed the tiny ornament holder hook from the head othe neck of the guitar.  There is a tiny button on the back that plays one of her famous songs (sorry do not know name of song).  I purchased it for my oldest granddaughter for Valentines and today she accidently opened a bag and seen it.  So needless to say I gave it to her. She was so excited. We got a Barbie doll and the strap on the guitar comes off and we put it on the doll.
Then we had to have a "concert" with the other dolls.  Both granddaughters had a lot of fun playing with it.

I also appliqued some of the designs onto the flarred denim jeans.  I made two outfits.  I used  Simplicity 4786 for the flarred denim jeans and flarred hot pink pants.

Barbie Doll - Leopard print - Bed in a Box (handmade)

I had seen several post using a photo box as a base for a bed for dolls such as Barbie, Liv, Monster High.  I used a black photo box as the base for the bed, then I used the lid for headboard.  I fastened the headboard with velcro.  You can remove lid and store bedding inside box and put away for storage if needed. Leopard print duck tape used to decorate the headboard.

Handmade matteress sits on top of bed

 A handmade tan flannel bedspread, handmade brown top sheet with leopard ribbon, two handmade pillows, two handmade brown pillow cases, two handmade pale yellow decor/throw pillows.

Show here is the pillow inside of pillow case.

Complete bedding set - "bed in a box"

I am thinking about listing this on Etsy to sell.  My granddaughters love it.  The box is sturdy and I believe it will hold up well.  The good thing is you can put all bedding inside box, put lid on box and store if needed.
