nursery update! 

tonight we’ll be putting a black floating shelf over the changing table/dresser and one over the glider as well. 

we ordered this decal to place over the changing table (and underneath the shelf) and i’ll be putting the little animal hoops on/around the shelf.

the scallop garland i’m making will go over the bed, with multiple strands criss-crossing and i’ll be hanging a small piece of art or two on the walls underneath.

the two embroidered hoops will go in the little section of wall next to the window, behind the glider. matthew had the idea to hang them from a piece of ribbon from a screw with a button glued onto the front of it, which i think is adorable. 

everything’s coming together - hopefully this week we’ll be almost completely done with the nursery and then i’ll do post with pictures of all the little details.

note: please excuse the tin foil. we’re trying to make our cats understand that this room is not their play palace.

all of the scallops are sewn - FUCKING FINALLY.
i especially love the grey and red scallops. their textures are so nice.
now onto the next steps:
- iron each scallop to round them out
- iron the ribbon in half to make it easier to pin to the scallops
this project is pretty boring and repetitive, but i’m hoping the payoff will be worth it.

all my fabric squares are cut and ready to be patterned up! currently doing the red, ruffly fabric, as i think that’s going to be the most challenging/angry-making.
i’m using this tutorial and altering a couple of things:
- cut 6.5 x 7.5 squares instead of 6 x 8 (mostly due to the fact of how much fabric i had/how wide the fabric was).
- using grey 1.5 inch satin ribbon instead of bias tape. it might be a little more difficult since there’s not a pre-made fold, but i couldn’t find any bias tape at the craft store (UGH!) and i thought that grey would look better with the room than white.
- using mostly textured fabrics to give some depth instead of all patterned fabrics… we’ll see how they turn out.
so, this could be a total win or a total failure. i’ll let you guys know how it goes.
