Dollhouse Series
Bedroom: Blanket (and Towel)


Welcome to my dollhouse series tutorials! This is the bedroom section of tutorials.

This tutorial is for a blanket (it can also be used as a towel for your bathroom). I put mine on top of my tall chest in the bedroom.

All of the other items in the bedroom can be found on the main dollhouse tutorial page, which you will find here. If you haven't already done so, please go there and orient yourself to the dollhouse tutorials, and for important information you'll need to complete the series.

Once you complete the bedroom, and all the other rooms, you'll assemble them all into the completed dollhouse.

Please read my Terms of Use before completing these tutorials.

This tutorial was written for Paint Shop Pro versions 9 and 7.04

For this tutorial, you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro. I used version 9, and have made comments as appropriate for PSP 7 users. I didn't test it in PSP8, but you shoud be able to complete the tutorial in that version as well. You may download the latest PSP version demo here.

My seamless fill. You may download it here.

You're going to draw your blanket with vectors, and then save it as a preset shape. This shape can then be used later to make blankets or towels.

Step 1. Open a new image 150 x 150.

Step 2. Set your foreground color to black, and background to white. Choose your preset shapes tool>rectangle, using the settings in the screenshot.


Draw a shape approximately 100 x 25 (watch the numbers at the bottom of your screen).


Right click on the layer and name it whatever you want your preset shape to be named. Then go to File>export>shape. Type in the shape name again and save.

Step 3. Set your foreground color to black, and background to a color/texture/pattern of your choice. I'm including the texture I used, and if you want to use that one, open it up ("dhtowelfill_pracken"). Set the angle to 0, scale to about 70.

Click on your preset shapes tool, then navigate to the shape you just saved. Draw a shape 100 x 25. [Note: if you're drawing towels, just draw the shape smaller].

Delete the background layer and save as a psp file. Now wasn't that easy? *grin*

What to do next

Now continue on through the bedroom tutorials, in order (go here to find the tutorials index, and scroll down to the bedroom section to find the others). Once you have all of the items in the bedroom section complete, then go here to assemble it.

Have fun!
