Life has been really wonderful here in Vancouver. We just had a great long weekend spent with lots of amazing friends and some time to relax and get our little Mr’s room ready for his arrival in…6.5 weeks!
We decided on a black and white theme for his closet/nursery. I am working on a collage that will be above his change table, and my husband has made some furniture to hang his clothes (i’ll feature that sometime – its pretty amazing), and we have a white crib. I liked the idea of a simple theme and I am loving the bold look of black and white together. It is so easy to throw in a colour to the mix, and so we have hints of baby blue scattered throughout. I made this bunting to hang on his crib while I had access to my moms sewing machine in Kelowna, and I feel it is the perfect little boy touch to his miniature little crib. Here is how I made it:
Three easy steps seen above: CUT – SEW – IRON. If you notice that the black and white stripes go up and down in the first couple photos, then when they are on the ironing board they go side to side – good eye! I did this on purpose, so it could be reversible. The only problem is when it is held up to light, it looks plaid – not what I was going for, but in his closet there is not enough light to tell.
My final step was sewing the biased tape to the top of the flags. I don’t have it pictured, but it is as easy as pin and sew.
That is all it takes to make some bedding bunting. And if you are wondering whether his fitted crib sheet is too little, it is. Not sure why the mini crib people haven’t realized that the mini crib sheets don’t fit yet. Simple math people, simple math.
