Benjamin’s Nursery - Sneak Peek

My Dears, 

I haven’t forgotten that I promised you a look at Ben’s completed nursery. The only problem is that it is not yet finished. Yes, the kid is a month old, I’m aware of this. 

But frankly, he doesn’t really care. As long as there is lots of milk, a dry diaper, and a warm crib, he seems to be fairly happy. 

I care. And I want to finish it. It’s just going a heck of a lot slower than I imagined. 

Here is a quick sneak peek though. I just finished a whole host of sewing projects including three pillows, a bench pad (with a significant portion completed by my mom), an ottoman cover, and curtains. 

I have learned a lot about sewing this week, to say the least. And the seam ripper? It’s my best friend. 

Anyway, without further ado:
We need a new model. This one stinks. 


  1. Nicely done. :) So how is your confidence level in sewing now? Feeling better about it? Your projects look great. Did you applique the pillow? Applique is one of my next big things to use in my quilts. Hoping I have time for it once we get settled.

  2. Confidence level extends to straight lines and that's about it. :) the big pillow was made from one panel of printed fabric...definitely not talented enough for anything fancier than that at this point!

  3. So cute. And even crying that model doesn't stink. Of course that's through the computer. Maybe in person he's a bit odiferous at times. That's babies for you.

    Where did you find that panel? I am on such an owl kick lately and that is ADORABLE!

  4. Thanks! The owl panel is from Pacific Fabrics (the north gate one). I think I actually have the name of the company that made it... I'll look for it when I am not tethered to chair with the bambino.

  5. It's Folic by sandy gervais for moda - pattern #17510. hope that helps!

  6. Everything looks wonderful! You turned out to be quite the seamstress didn't you? I love the pillows! And don't you just love Moda prints? Have you visited the Moda bakeshop yet? ♥
