If you are friends with me on facebook, you have probably noticed my recent status updates:

So excited to have our fabric for Baby Astrid's bedding! So excited! Makes me want to whip out my machine an finish it all tonight. ...but I won't! Lol!

Spent the last hour+ cutting out bedding patterns... My hand hurts. :( I so deserve this Cadbury caramel egg for a midnight snack! Mmmmmmmm.

Yay! Bumpers, quilt, and bedskirt all cut and ready to be sewn! Maybe I will have more craft time tomorrow.... We shall see!!

Bumpers: check. Now onto the quilt and bedskirt... :)

21 hours ago
bumpers finished, quilt 3/4 finished... just need to do the bedskirt and maybe some decorative pillows... then the huge SEW-SPLOSION that is my main room needs to get cleaned up. Last day of sewing... I need a break.

13 hours ago
Sew-splosion just about cleaned up. Quilt almost done... Bumpers done, pillows done and bedskirt done! :) yay! I'll post pics on the blog maybe tomorrow! Now if I could just find a crib to put it all on! ;)

Well ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased to announce that the bedding is DONE! 


No more sew-splosions in my main room for a while.  I'm done with sewing for now (or at least until my next whim hits me!)

Here is the set all finished and together! (I had to set it all up on two large tupperware boxes on my dining room table!  We still have not purchased a crib for this little girl yet, and I did not want to wait until we did to show off my accomplishment!  I had to be creative to show off the bedding!)

Bedskirt! (Pardon the wrinkles... I refuse to iron this yet again when its going to go in a box until or crib is set up!)

Quilt!  One side of the quilt is this and the other side is the exposed frayed edges. (I admit, this part is NOT done yet, but it is going to get done this weekend while watching General Conference this weekend...)

Pillows!  They are reversible... You can see in the set picture the big square one is pink and striped on one side and fuzzy cream fabric on the other.  The rectangle one is this floral print on one side and cream and a big stripe in the middle on the other side.

 Bumpers! The floral fabric will face inside the crib and the striped fabric will be facing the bars of the crib. I have not added the tie-ons yet because I want to line them up exactly with our crib rails to ensure a nice, snug and safe fit.

Okay... that is what I've been doing for the past week! And it's all done! SO HAPPY! Pin It


  1. WOW. You are so amazing! It looks sooooooooooo cute!!!! I love the fabrics that you chose to put together! You little mrs sewer you! If I could sew like that, do you know how many skirts I would have made for myself already? :)

  2. Gah. I tried to comment from my phone. Didn't work. What I said was....

    LOVE IT.

  3. You are too talented. I hate you.

    Just kidding (about the hate part. Ish.)
