A little sewing

So this little girl should be here any day.  I’m trying to make all of my last minute preparations before her arrival.  I’ve yet to put a single thing on the walls, but I have finished a few other things for the room.

The crib skirt is made with Joel Dewberry’s Rose Bouquet in Sky, from his Heirloom collection.  I just made up my own pattern for the crib skirt.  The crib sheet is a flannel that I picked up at Joann. I made two of these flannel sheets, the other is a more of the magenta color that matches the flowers in the crib skirt fabric.  I used coordinating prints from the same collection throughout the room.

This is one of three changing pad covers that I finished.  Again, same fabric collection as above, the flannel was from Joann.  (Same flannel as the other crib sheet.)

The curtain was kind of a last minute decision.  I had originally planned to make long panels that had a variety of fabric strips along the bottom.  In the end this was the product of my imagination.  I totally winged this and just made it up as I went along!  I do like the way it looks. it adds a lightness to the room, which I think would not have happened with the panels.

Not pictured is a small quilt/blanket, two additional changing pad covers, an extra crib sheet and two pack ‘n play sheets.  Lots of sewing happening around here!  I’m trying to work up a tutorial for the pack ‘n play sheets.  They were really simple  to make, and didn’t use tons of fabric.  Hopefully we’ll see that in the next few days!!

Sorry for the inconsistency of colors in the pictures, they were taken at different times of the day.  I’ve found that the paint color tends to change depending on the hour.  It’s a Benjamin Moore color, Faded Lilac (I think…).  I really truly had decided to use a color with more gray in it, but I came home from the store with this paint color.  I really do like it, it’s just not what I had envisioned, but still quite lovely.
