The boy's children bed

Added Jul 16, 2010

Berlin, Germany






After having finished the Princesscastle for my young girl client, i had to do the same bed for her 2 years older brother. He told me, that he likes green, the forest, dinosaurs and jungle……..

so this is my attempte to get everything into this bed he wanted. I used a big package of green leaves (from an internetshop ( the same like the ivy girlanda)) these leaves look very real and are made out of textil material with a litttle thread in the middel so you can give them a bit of a shape, after sewing them onto something.

the dinos are from a little left behind material, i used earlier for a childrens chair. all the side pannels are filled with the same polyester fibre i normaly use for the quilts so they have a little more “body”

i really hope, you all are going to like this project as much as my little client and i do

Material Notes

different prints in cotton and linnen, polyester fibre, embroidery thread, leaves and ivy girlanda from an internetshop in fabric




Garment Type
Cotton, Linen

    Good job! Looks great, just like the Princess one. Is that an Ikea bed? My youngest has the Ikea one that looks like it, so I’m just curious. You did a fabulous job!

    Thank you all for your lovely comment. comparing the two beds, i have to say, that i love the material of the first one more, but the second one just looks better in its finished way. – All of you giving me such lovely comments……. i thank you all and wish you all the very best!
