Here they are: http://www.achildsdream.com/handwork...g_supplies.htm
Scroll down, you'll see them....Took me FOREVER to find them. They are a bit taller than the Plan Toys doll house dolls so if you have that furniture set (or Ryan's Room), then they likely won't be able to fit in their beds.

How did you make the little foodies? The salad and the hamburgers? And what did you use to color the bowls/plates (they look like ones I've seen unfinished)?
Thank you.

The foods are just felt. It was an easy solution.

And yes, the plates and bowls were bought. I dropped them in boiling water (just for a tiny bit so as not to warp them) to open their pores and then dyed them in a rubbing alcohol-food coloring bath, then sealed them.

shllywlly OK...WOW mama!!! You are awesome. No chance of giving the rest of us hints on the baby furniture huh? I bought my Plan Toys dolls house with all the furniture and accessories from consignment for $60. There is over $300 worth of stuff in there. The only thing missing is the nursery and high chair. I would love to make one for her.

jocelyndale So awesome!

Keep an eye at crafty shops (often in touristy areas or nice artsy towns) for small woven/loomed fabric samples, often sold as coasters. They make perfect throw rugs. Sometimes they're even made by the artisan's kids! (I bought rugs for my dollhouse this way when I was a kid.)

The cushions are just fabric folded over cotton batting - that's the stuff you put in quilts, right? I think that's what it's called (batting). And it's definitely NOT the icky batting (polyester?) but the real cotton stuff.

I used three "sheets" of batting for the cushions, four for the pillows on the backs of the chairs/sofas, and four for the mattresses. I folded the fabric over the batting, glued it with some Liquid Stitch , then lightly glued (with the same stuff) to the furniture.

Grayson's Mom O - M - G

I want to live in this house.

You have totally inspired me. I have the same Plan Toys dollhouse, which I love. I have the furniture too, but I hate the cushions that came with my furniture. Now I am going to make some that I like. One question... What did you use for the filling in your pillows and such?
