Okay, so on to the BIG project that has consumed my sewing/crafting life over the past two months.
I am pretty sure the Nursery is almost finished, but it seems like just when I think I am finished, I come up with something else to make or do.
We are waiting for the changing table/dresser combo to arrive, and once that arrives all of the furniture will be in place, and I can make sure that I like how the room is arranged.
In my last post I mentioned I was starting to work on some art for the walls. I am happy with the way it turned out, and at this point it is on the wall above where I plan to put the changing table.
Next I began decorating letters with his name for the opposite wall. They are not hung yet, apparently my hubby thinks it is going to be a big project to get them centered and level, so he has not wanted to put them up.
I was randomly given a white shelf a couple of weeks ago, and thought I might be able to use it in the nursery. It turned out to be a perfect fit by the glider, to use as a side table. There are three shelves; on the bottom I put blankets, on the middle shelf I made another fabric basket and put burp rags in it, and then on the top I put a lamp.
I bought a plain lampshade and covered it with some of the elephant fabric. My elephants are "dancing" around the lampshade as I struggled to get the elephants perfectly straight so I just let them go at an angle.
I realized last week that I didn't have any burp cloths for the baby and I didn't want to go buy cloth diapers to turn into burp cloths... So I went through my scrap stash of flannel, minky, and fleece and came up with some fabric that I could turn into burp cloths. I made five this week and would like to make a few more. They are nothing fancy, and they only took about 10 minutes each to make, but they are so soft and turned out pretty cute.
I hope that the next time I post about the nursery it will complete! I can't wait to post pics of how it all came together.
