For all the orders that I've done I think I've only done ONE other boy item.. and that was just a crib skirt. So this set was really neat to put together, because it let me use all the boy tones and prints that are really cute for a baby's room. This mom and I worked hard to get colors and patterns to match up. We tried several different combinations until we found 6 fabrics that worked perfectly. And after getting the set (almost) complete and seeing it in her baby's room, definitely made the time it took to decide onthe fabrics. :)
We chose these fabrics:
Urban Circus by Laurie Wisbrun / Robert Kaufman - Pachyderm Parade in Earth (lt. blue elephant)
Urban Circus by Laurie Wisbrun / Robert Kaufman - Pachyderm Dot in Earth (green elephant)
Moda Wee Woodland Stripe Orange by Keiki
Khristian Howell - Theory / Rainforest Leaves in Seaside
Robert Kaufman - Groove Abstract Earth
Khristian A Howell - Lattice in Sierra (brown lattice)
I started with the bumper:
Cut the pieces and laid them in the pattern..
Sewn them together..
Covered the cording and made the bumper pad ties..
Sewn the two sides together with the piping and ties, leaving an opening in the bottom to put the Nufoam bumper pad into..
Inserted the foam and closed off the opening in the bottom...
Did the same for the other pieces, and now the bumper pad is done!
Then while at a friend house for a craft day/night, I was able to do the crib skirt and the crib sheet...
Next I worked on the two curtain panels, piecing them together..
Lined the back of them with a muslin fabric, and put tab tops on the top of them. Her window is a shorter window than mine here, shorter and wider. So there are two curtain panels made identical to this one shown.
Lastly, I made the changing pad cover, which fits contoured or flat changing pads. They have full elastic all the way around.
I still have to make the Crib Hanging Toy Bag, and the Crib Quilt. But I wanted to send these items to her as soon as they were done because little H was coming soon! I'll finish up these other two items and will blog them next week. :)
She got her package today in the mail and set things up and was nice enough to send me pics by text! Her Mother-In-Law was still ironing out the folds in the curtain panels, so we didn't get any pics of those yet. But Im looking forward to seeing them and then adding the other items to the baby room next week!
Thank You Sarah!
