A Friend's Nursery - ooh la la!

Oooh - pretty baby stuff. Who can resist?! Here is my latest sewing project. I know many of the blogs I read and a lot of what I've been doing right now focuses home decor and thrifty decorating and reusing of old items. However - one of my loves is sewing! Last year I spent a lot of time sewing and selling on Etsy... but it began to feel like a chore and let's face it - the dollar per hour is not too alluring in the sewing business. So, now I have been enjoying projects that present themselves with no stress or payment involved.
The latest project is one I mentioned here. This delightful fabric choice by my friend is for her upcoming (soon!) arrival's nursery. I made the bed skirt, bumper, basket liners and valences for her. It was a lot of fun and turned out super cute! So - the finished project... ta da!

Here are the little baskets packed with her goodies for the shower.

I couldn't resist this picture - check out the homemade cupcakes...they were scrumptious if I do say so myself and coordinated with the bedding!
Chocolate with mint buttercream icing and pumpkin with cinnamon cream cheese icing were both topped with little mod-podged owls from her fabric on sticks trimmed with coordinating ribbon. Fun stuff!
This is her finished crib - lovely! I love the colors with the dark wood - I think she did an awesome job picking out the fabric!


  1. Oh I agree!! The colors are FABULOUS with the dark wood!! You did a great job!! I am so with you on sewing/$ per hour thing!! If I didn't LOVE it so much it would probably bother me more!! :D I know after the holidays, I will be looking to take a break! Maybe then my house will FINALLY be clean!! HA!

  2. You DID do a great job! Those cupcakes are making me hungry! So sorry I missed you guys, but am looking forward to Friday! xo
