The Nursery…

Well some details:-) I was too lazy to change lenses/set up a tripod and I hate using a flash…so the portrait lens stayed on the camera…and well you get details:-)

When we had Holden, I considered making my own bedding/nursery decor, but then I was talked out of it due to timing etc…I was still working at the time, and I don’t think I had my sewing machine set up full time…So I settled on the requisite green adn brown, and I found some more “modern” bedding to use…

With this baby I knew I wanted to incorporate orange, so I knew I would probably have to make my own stuff…I didn’t want to just toss out the old so I was trying to figure ways to re purpose stuff…I originally was thinking orange and brown…but I looked and looked and nothing appealed to me…and then I saw the above fabric:-) It made me happy so I went with it!

As I said I wanted to re purpose or reuse anything I could…so above hamper was Holden’s BUT it was minty green…gotta love that fabric dye:-)

For the bedding I recovered the existing bumper, and used the base of the crib skirt, just added a new “skirt” part, and I bought a pack of white sheets at Target and again me and the fabric dye became friends:-) The pillow was from Holden’s as well just recovered with extra fabric…I also dyed a couple of the plain colored sheets I had with Holden and donated the print ones:-)

Any pattern ideas or “jumping off” points came from Amy Butlers “Little Stitches” I think Amy Butler is an awesome designer!

This was my first attempt, or I should say my first successful attempt at machine quilting…I LOVE my walking foot I can’t believe it took me SO long to use it! So fun!

I LOVE how it turned out it is SO cheery and happy:-) And I think it works for a boy or a girl:-)
