feathering our nest...

I'm still practicing with my new camera, so here's a little sneak peek at the baby's room.

I made the crib sheet, crib skirt, and you can also see a bit of my very first attempt at making a quilt. I made all of the bedding using tutorials I found online, which I've linked to at the bottom of the post. We'll be adding a few more touches after the baby is born, and then I'll post a full "nursery tour". I have to say we've had more fun putting together this room than any other in our house.

All of the fabric is from the Denyse Schmidt Hope Valley line, which I picked up at City Craft, a fantastic fabric boutique and sewing lounge here in Dallas.

Tutorials I used:
Crib Skirt Tutorial (I made a few modifications to make a false pleat with contrasting fabric in the center. Hard to see in this pic though.)

Where did you get that crib?! I've been trying to find one just like it!

Hey Missy,
I actually found the crib on the Walmart website, of all places.

Here's the link:

It received great reviews and seems to be really sturdy. It's also a great price!

What a pretty paint color. Can I ask what it is?

Sure, the paint is Sherwin-Williams Harmony Paint (low VOC) in "Essential Gray".
