Finally. The crib set for my niece (due to arrive in January) is DONE. I spent two weeks working on this set. I am sure if I could just sit down and sew for hours that it wouldn't take quite as much time. But I have children to chase so my sewing sessions are short and usually interrupted quite frequently. All that aside though, I am so glad to have this finished. I never understood why people would charge $300 for a handmade crib set. Well, NOW I know why. It is tedious, time consuming work with lots of yardage, lots of gathering and lots of backaches. My sewing room was starting to feel like a sweatshop. I don't have pictures of the dust ruffle yet, it got too dark before it was finished. It's my favorite part though. Here's the rest of the set, for your viewing pleasure. :o)
the hardest part...the bumpers
two crib sheets (so easy)
the cute bunny pattern my sister picked out, it's cream and light green
Hope you enjoyed a fun filled Friday the 13th.
Happy Saturday (in 5 minutes)
PS I am painting a pig tomorrow, I'll post pics tomorrow night.
