Tutorial: How to make a bed using polymer clay

Dear Readers,

I recently tried something new. Mrs. Edith Snow-Warren proudly presents her new bed:

I think it looks quiete nice and it was really easy to make.

If you want to make your own polymer clay bed, you need:

- FIMO or another polymer clay
- cardboard
- pasta machine or rolling pin
- a Sylvanian families bed (or use my pattern)

Step 1: 

Take your bed, lay it on a piece of paper and trace the shape onto the paper.

Trace the head piece and stilt (I used the stilt two times, because I needed a lower bed) and the side parts. 

If you don't have a bed yet, just write me an e-mail, and I send you a pdf :). Write at:

Step 2:

Now roll out a sheet of clay. Now you just have to lay your patterns on the clay and use a sharp knife to cut out the shape.

Step 3:

Bake the parts and glue them together. You'll have the basic frame.

Step 4:

Cut out a fitting rectangle of carboard and glue it into the frame. 
Add a mattress and some bedding and your done :).

Alice also likes the new bed of her grandparents, but she prefers her rocking horse. 

I hope you enjoyed that little tutorial. I did also another bed for my Ai Doll Rhodanthe and I would be happy if you would take a look ^.^. This is a wrought-iron looking bed and if you're interested in reworking it, here's the link. You can also adapt the bed into Sylvanian size of course.

Many greetings,

yours Kyra

  3. Great tutorial! It looks perfect! I wouldn't even know you made it yourself. :) Could you send me the PDF? I have no adult bed yet :o ;)

    1. Thank you so much! :) I did send you the PDF :). Good luck with reworking!

  4. What a unique and original idea! Your are so clever like that. I would never have thought of a FIMO bed, but hey, that is the beauty of following this brilliant blog :D
