I quickly found the dust ruffle and sheets for Reese’s nursery, but the perfectly suited bumper just didn’t seem to be out there. (Side note about DIY vs. store bought for me: I think it’s great to make custom items for just about anything as long as they either save me money, time, or there just isn’t anything available in stores that suits what I want. In the case of the dust ruffle, I found the perfect ruffle in store, so it saved time. In the case of the sheets, the store bought ones were cheaper than what it would have cost to make them. So store bought was a win!)
I knew that my favorite fabrics in the Vintage Modern Line by Moda (I buy mine at Poppy Seed Fabrics) would make the perfect bumper. (The blanket hanging from the crib was crocheted for Reese by Nolan’s mom. I love the way it turned out!)
I ordered 1.5 yards each of Floral Vintage Cream and Floral Wish Melon, as well as some white piping from Joann’s and made a slip cover for the bumper I used in Jace’s nursery.
Ribbons were sewn on at the same spacing as the ties on the original bumper. I love how cute the bows look!
As with other projects where I’ve using piping, I think it’s my favorite element. Although I do LOVE the way these fabrics look—by themselves and with all the bedding. My mom bought me the sheets and dust ruffle as a gift of love, and I did the work as a labor of love. Hopefully Reese will sleep peacefully here.
I love the way the fabric brings all the elements of the room together! Next up I’ll be showing you some of the finishing touches and decorative details in the room, and then the final reveal!
Thanks for stopping by!
