Decisions, Decisions

September 9th, 2010

So I think I mentioned in this previous post that I have been searching for the perfect fabric for van’s crib skirt and bumper.

I’ve had trouble finding what I’m been envisioning in my head, so I’m wondering if I just need to switch gears and do something different.  {Not that van is going to notice if his crib doesn’t have a skirt on it come November, but his momma will.}

Here are 2 options that I’m currently debating.

I’m worried that the yellow ticking is “too stripy” and Mr. vB called the yellow print “too grandma”.

I really liked this fabric from SpoonFlower

but once I got the actual sample {thanks to free sample day}, it proved to be way too marigold yellow instead of the soft yellow that I need. DARN!

I also liked this one and this one

But I’m just not sure.

I HAVE made my mind up though that the decorative bumper will be out of this white diamond matelasse fabric.

And then the piping and ties will be made out of whatever fabric the skirt is made out of.

So I’m halfway there…

If you’re interested in making your own crib skirt and bumpers too, check out these links.

For bed skirts go here and for crib bumpers go here!

Happy Sewing!

    I like the “grandma” fabric. :)

    This is hilarious. I have like the exact same photo on my blog of the fabric swatches sandwiched under the mattress trying to decide on a crib skirt. I love the one you picked!
