I decided on an additional project that should help keep our nursery makeover on the thrifty side. With some motivation from online tutorials, and the help of my sewing machine, I am going to make the bedding for Sarah’s crib. I don’t yet have the crib/mattress, so I can’t start yet, but I have been browsing a few craft stores for the fabric I’d like to use.
Here are my top contenders:
I like the playfulness of the leaves & polkadot
How cute is this swirly print?
While I like it I don’t know if it’ll go well with the purple walls…
I think I may have a thing for leaves…
This one is my absolute FAVORITE
I especially like the blue & green hues that are mixed in
These were all the ones I liked best
When I google “baby bedding” there are an endless amount of pages to view, it’s strangely overwhelming. Heck, I don’t even know how many different pieces are required for bedding… are bumpers good or bad? Is a crib skirt necessary? Are there 2 mattresses, a boxspring and mattress, or is it just one?! I think I have more researching to do…
On the bright side, I found myself a lovely 40% off coupon to use at Jo-Anns, so that should help keep the cost down even more! What do you think? I love hearing other peoples thoughts & opinions.
