Happy Monday, friends.
I can't believe I am already back to sitting at this desk again. Bummer.
I'm sleepy, I'm mourning the loss of the weekend, I want to go back to bed.
What's that? You do too?
Well, maybe I can help to take the edge of that Monday sting with another DIY nursery post
. Because these things make me happy. However, if they don't do the same for you, the only other thing I can do for you is to tell you to go get yourself a big Diet Coke. With a fresh lemon. And crushed ice. Oh yum...
What were we talking about again?
Ah yes, the nursery.
Next up in the DIY nursery series: Baby bedding.
I got all of the fabric for the crib skirt, comforter, pillow, stuffed owl and penant for under $40. How? S and I spent a good solid half hour scouring the remnants pile at our local craft store. And it paid off BIG time.
At one time I had taken step-by-step pictures of each project, but now I can't find any of them on any of my memory cards or computers. Pregnancy brain at work again
? Perhaps. But I found the tutorials for each project on Pinterest, and I will link them here so you can go look if you want. Their directions are waaaay better than mine would have been anyways.
Up first: A little baby comforter:
I found the tutorial for this little number here
It was soooo simple to make, I finished it in just a few hours.
Next: A zig-zag pillow to match
I found the tutorial for this darling pillow here
, and I simplified it just a little. I didn't fold
and individually sew the zig-zags first, I just cut them out and sewed them straight on. Yep. Short cut.
(Side note: I 10000% plan to remove EVERYTHING completely from the crib when baby comes. Please don't email me and tell me I am going to suffocate the babe. You can, however email me and tell me other things, if you want, like what you did this weekend, etc. I like to chat. The end.)
They look cute together, huh?
And then, I had loooots of extra fabric so I made a crib skirt (tutorial coming soon),
(who you've already met, and this simple penant:
Next up: All the things I thrifted and spray painted (including that
presh orange crib), a crib skirt, and whatever else I feel like.
Happy Monday? Let's hope!
Meet me at 7-11 and we'll get that Coke?
