BUT. The baby of someone who sews, and therefore has become very picky about fabrics, has to have a hand-made nursery, right?? I searched and searched but couldn't really find any ready-made items that went with my nursery vision. We're not going to find out if Bean is a boy or a girl, so I needed someone gender neutral. But I didn't want tans, light greens and yellows - I wanted brightly colored and fun. So here's what I've come up with!
|Robert Kaufman Jungle Creatures Bubbles Red and Quilter's Linen in Aqua|
|Urban Zoologie Elephants in primary, Remix Polka Dots in primary and Super Kids in primary|
|Urban Flotologie Bright Kites, buttons from JoAnn's and Urban Flotologie Animals in Trees in Rainbow|
I also have a wooden rocking chair that I'm going to paint white and that I'd like to make new cushions for. I bought some Metro Living Box Stripe in Marigold, but I think it's a little too orange-y instead of more yellow-y. So back to the drawing board on that one.
The fabrics came from Fabric.com, StitchStashDiva's Etsy shop, JoAnn's and The Cozy Quilter (one of my local shops).
Bean is due in mid-May, so hopefully I can get at least this much done!
Linking up with Molli Sparkles!
