I've been MIA and hard at work sewing a gorgeous little girls crib bedding set inspired by Tiffany & Co.
No more babies for me, this was created for one of my good friends sister, who is expecting her precious little girl soon! :) Here are a few pics of the completed set.
The set included: a bumper, unique "Bella" design quilt, box pleat crib skirt, 3 throw pillows, minky travel blanket and 3 little Luvies (burp cloths)
This was our inspiration photo, she loved the Tiffany Blue color and damask pattern but wanted the black accents.
Miraculously I was able to find the exact same fabric! It is gorgeous.
Props to http://www.fabricshack.com/ -- They have an awesome selection!!
Just don't spread the word to much... I like having a secret stash! ;)
I learned how to sew my own piping and cut on the bias for this project, it was full of firsts for me! I realized how much I LOVE Google, it's my bff on the internet. You can seriously learn how to DO anything in a flash... what did people do before internet and all you other awesome DIY blogs that I rely on??? ;)
I added thick black piping on the top and bottom of the bumper with extra big bows to add to the drama. I refashioned the bumper with a brand new one I found on super sale at Target for $13, it was a horrid fabric... but I needed a pattern and bumper pads, it was perfect and more thrifty than buying it seperate from Joanns! The pads alone there were $25+ dollars.
This is my second "Bella" quilt and I love the way the black piping just finishes it perfectly! See the first set HERE.
With the crib skirt I got thrifty and found a brand new white full size bedskirt that I had never even opened the package (my son isn't one to appreciate a "skirt" on his bed... haha). So I "Sew-Over-It" and refashioned it into a crib size skirt and added the black and teal trim. Great way to save $ on fabric!
And no Tiffany & Co. Inspired bedroom could be complete without the signature box! ;)
So I created a personalized version using their daughters name Tenley.
And of course you can't forget to indulge in a few "diamonds", satin and velvet!
Don't worry, these throw pillows are decorative purpose only for the chair, not crib use.
I had fun sewing this custom bedding set, and may just have to think about adding some designs to my shop in the future!
