panoramic view of the nursery. it’s done (well, except for the basic things like sheets, diapers, etc)!7
the diaper changing area is coming along. now all we need are some actual diapering supplies.11
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.2
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.5
they’re finally finished!34
EVERY SINGLE CD IN THE HOUSE HAS NOW BEEN IMPORTED!!!
just to give you some context, the import added 12 days of music to our digital library.
now it’s time to move the cd case out of the nursery and get to decorating! only 12 weeks left until the Tamale is scheduled to be here!6
