Yes, I am making the nursery bedding.
Yes, I can sew on fabric and not just scrap pages.
Yes, this is gymnastics season where time is not a flowin'.
Yes, I am crazy.
I looked all around for either sex bedding and it all made me want to vomit a little in my mouth. Yep, so I took matters into my own hands and am gunna make our nursery bedding. =)
And you gotcha, that's Bailey the skinny cat helping me out! He thought pulling out the pins on the fabric was really a fun game. And flossing his teeth with thread... that was a ton of fun too. Anyhow... I got the baby's comforter finished this weekend!!
Let me show ya all the fabrics. I feel like I'm on HGTV on Designers Challenge trying to sell you all my idea. Um, all the fabrics are cut and purchased so I hope you all like it cuz I can't return it. =) And PLEASE tell me that these fabrics are for either sex! I was standing in the line ready to get all my fabrics cut and the gal behind me and I were chatting. She said the only thing that may be if-y is the coral fabric with the butterflies, dragonflies and such. Um, boys like bugs, right?
Okay.. this is what everything will be...
Green: Wall color, in the comforter and the crib skirting.
Blue: Back of comforter and other touches throughout the room. There is blue ribbon to tie on the bumper as well.
Yellow stripe: The crib bumber, a strip in the skirting and strip in the curtains.
Coral ish color with bugs: Comforter and curtains.
Plaid: Touches in the pillows and other places. It was muy expensive so I didn't buy much of it.
And the walls I am super excited about too. Member that really ugly wood paneling in the dining room? We are recycling it to wainscoting! It will NOT be groody brown... it will be vibrant white topped off with a chair-rail about 2/3rds of the way up the wall. Then the green color will be in the upper 1/3rd. SO excited!! Going for the cottage-y type of look.
So... here's the baby's comforter I whipped up this weekend!!!
Hope ya all like it!! It's so soft and cuddly. =) Ready for the baby. =)
And... I apologize for the lack of blogging here lately. My new work internet HATES blogger and I am not able to blog. So, I write up my blog and my baby’s daddy.. the wonderful Darin Jay… is posting for me. (He loves it when I call him “my baby’s daddy”... so proper and not scanky sounding! Ha!) So yeah, with how busy I’ve been at work and in life general, the blog has been put on the back burner. Sorry!! I can’t promise I’ll be able to blog more, just bare with me!!
AND NEXT WEEK I WILL MEET KAYLA AIMEE! I’m so excited. Words can’t even describe it.
