We bought Miss E a lovely bed from IKEA last year, which she is quite fond of.  It's low to the ground and beautiful.  However, IKEA beds require special bedding due to their unique size and set up.

So, I went online to The Company Store and found two full size sheets that I loved---both on sale and in addition, I used a coupon (of course!).  One is of multiracial fairies, the other flowers.    My mother-in-law made this custom, reversible quilt for my daughter's bed, and is making an identical one for Baby E when she's old enough to be in a "big girl" bed.    Benefit:   sheets are far less costly than pre-made comforters!    (Note:  For a standard size twin bed, you will need a larger sheet than a full to make two comforters). 

So, if you are frustrated, like me, with the lack of brown girls being represented, take matters into your own hands, pick your fabric, find a willing friend or family member (or pay someone if necessary), and create a one-of-a-kind creation that will comfort him or her night after night.
