How to make a doll mattress

Easy mattress for doll furniture

Need to know size of mattress needed:
Height =
Width =
Thickness =
Seam Allowance =

Layout above with your dimensions.
Sew (wrong sides together) the corners together (Red double corner arrows), should look like you are sewing a 45 degree angle from the top.
Now the mattress will look like a box with a lid.
With wrong sides together sew the bottom to the sides, leave a hole for stuffing.
Turn right side out.
Stuff mattress.
Sew hole shut.
Put sewn hole in back or on bottom of project.
Optional: can add yarn ties to mattress if too fluffy or if you like the old fashion look, trim yarn tails.

Other mattress ideas:
Sponges if you can find them big enough (Do not get the wet ones)

Towels/wash cloths (Folded up)

Foam from the craft store cut to fit (do not have a picture of this) Use a electric knife to cut it easy.

Warhammer Paint Boxes!

NOTE: Re-posting this from http://www.kabcnccreationsllc.com/

These are currently sold in Portage, MI at Family Hobby Shops (aka L & J Hobbies). We can also post these on Ebay, Etsy or Zibbet let us know and we will post one for you!

I made an organizer box for Warhammer paints:
It is a great box to travel with for your paints.  It also makes storing them easy, great if you do not have many paints yet.  Can organize paints based on which army they were bought for. Easy to add on to as you get more paints.  Can change the size of the holes to fit your size of paints.

$16.99 + shipping your choice of box (paint or extra box).  Paint box comes with your choice of sized holes.
Note: older paint bottles for Warhammer will not fit these holes, you will need the larger holes.  Please send us your desired hole size to cut, will fit up to 1.5" diameter bottles and height of bottles of about 1.6".

Prototype filled with brushes, water and glue. (Top box shown is the Paint Box 10" x 5" x 3" with optional brush box.)

Prototype filled with paints. (Paint Box 10" x 5" x 2" tray shows in front, square holes)

Kevin made organizer drawers for Warhammer paints: 
This set of drawers will fit one of every color paint Warhammer currently sells.  The holes also fit other brands of paint jars. $179.99 to $199.99 + shipping for the set, depending on drawer front design.
