Baby Boom

It's official. Just about every female I know is pregnant. Ok, not quite - but pretty darn close. Baby bellies are popping out everywhere and it's not just baby on my brain. Believe me, I've been there and done that 4 times!

Though, it is fun for me to have the chance to make fresh baby things! A friend of mine will be having a baby any day now - here is her bedding that I just finished.

The baby boy's room is a vintage modern style with clean lines and prints paired with bold vintage inspired artwork on the walls. So fresh and fun!

I used just one panel of these Curtains from IKEA for the bumper pad and ties.

Instead of one long bumper, there are 4 pieces (2 long sides, 2 short) to make washing easier. You only have to wash the side that gets dirty - what mom wouldn't love less newborn baby laundry?!

and fabric by Etsuko Furuya: Echino Chelsea in GREY Deer Forest for the blanket.

She wanted just a blanket made instead of a quilt - but I did some different quilting to add interest to the fabric as well as hold the layers together. I used a large and small circles as templates and stitched them in a random pattern across the entire blanket. It's kind of hard to see in the picture, but it turned out pretty nice.

And here's my baby posing for a picture.

Congrats to all of the soon to be mommies! Babies are so much....fun!
