Project 7: Covered Diaper Box

Project 7: Yesterday I was thinking there was another project but I couldn't think of what it was. This morning I remembered that I covered a large diaper box with poster board so I could use it as a "drawer" to keep sleep n play one piece outfits in since the dresser has such tiny drawers.

Lily's Baby Doll Bed

My best friend's little girl had her fourth birthday a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to create something for the little girl that would last long after her Little House on the Prairie birthday party was over. I saw a great tutorial over at Almost Super Mom for a doll bed that used ribbons to tie up the corners to create the bed portion. I used a brown calico fabric for the outside and baby blue flannel for the inside. Instead of batting, I used fleece left over from another project. It turned out so cute and Lily loved it!

Princess Turret Reveal

I have been working on a princess turret for my niece Leyna for about a month now. She was born April 2, 2013 so I really needed to finish up this project so it can be used to decorate her room. I can't wait to deliver it to her on Sunday. I am going to share some photos of how I created it later.

Niece Leyna's Nursery Curtains

I just love Michael Miller's Pink Giraffe Love fabric. I lined the curtains with an orange batik fabric to make them thicker. The top of the curtain was a 6 inch wide strip that I finished at each end to put on a curtain rod.  Aren't they beautiful?
