Are you a fan of mini stuff? Heck yes!!!!

For this swap, you will be making a mermaid-themed matchbox-size bed and little doll or stuffie that will fit along with it. Make the outside of the matchbox the bed with the drawer to hold the doll and any accessories you would like to include with it. The doll must be able to fit inside the drawer of the "bed". Use whatever medium you would like. Polymer clay is fine, fabric, felt, beads, etc...

Matchbox size will be a regular 32-ct. matchbox. You can use a purchased matchbox or create your own (my preferred method). THIS TEMPLATE is one I have used often. If you do make your own, just make sure they are still about a 32-ct. matchbox size!

Use your imagination, and have fun!!!

Here are a few other examples: ExpandedView MyBed PeacockHeadboard

For now, this will be a U.S.-only swap, but if someone would like to host an international version, please feel free!!

@SunTradeToo you better jump in on it!! haha

And YEAH!! I will get to the dresser next. haha. I had back-to-school teacher stuff this week, and our kiddos start the 25th. Once I feel comfy with where I'm at for my class planning so I can make sure I'll have good dedication of time toward it, I'll get that posted. haha

I type "haha" too much... I think that's going to be my new year's resolution this upcoming new year is to cut down on that.....

I'll be hosting it again soonish. Not to worry!! As I'm making the one I'm making now... I already have an idea for what I'm doing for my next one (which I might make for myself and then make copies of it for someone else). haha. I'm pretty excited!
