more sewing for the baby…

We’ve been slowly getting the baby’s room put together – it’s freshly painted, and we just got the crib set up. Which of course prompted a bit more sewing.

We went with gray for the room color, which I love. (Though it did take several test pots to find the one we liked best – gray’s a hard color to select!)

I knew I wanted to add in a little yellow, so when I saw Laura Gunn’s new fabric line, Magnolia Lane, I thought that the yellow tulip print would be perfect for a crib skirt. (I know it’s not very boyish, but I figure I’ll be the one looking at it!)

I also ordered a bit of the plaid print from the same line with the intention of making a crib sheet. As it turns out, it’s not exactly right for the room, but I went with it anyway. I’m quite certain that I’ll be happy to have more than one crib sheet!

And now that I know how easy it is to make your own crib sheets, I think there may be several more in our future!

Oh — unrelated, but sadly I got news from Bea of Aunt Bea’s Fabrics that her shop is closing. She’s having a sale to clear out inventory, and all fabrics are 30-50% off. She has some great fabrics, so if you’re looking to add to your stash, you might want to go take a peek! (I may or may not have felt the need to add to my Nani Iro stash!)
