I have never been a sewing lady.
My mom sews (and fixes all my clothes that break), my sister sews (and makes the cutest bibs, printed shirts, and other fabric toys), my sister-in-law sews (and makes dinner napkins, monogrammed overalls, and other kids apparel) so I have never even wanted to sew. Lately some of my blogger pals have gotten into sewing more and made cute dresses (BabyMakingMachine), and church bags (UpWithEllingsons).
It still has not inspired me to sew. On the other hand, the fabric swatches I found online are sooo adorable. I have so many great ideas for the nursery, and most of them start with fabric. I found the fabric I want on fabric.com
Now I need to decide what to do with the fabric I want to order. I don't do crib bumpers (because I am paranoid and they recommend not having them now to help prevent SIDS), so that is not an option. That also means that although baby blankets would be cute for the crib, I wouldn't actually put a blanket in or on the side of a crib (because I am paranoid). I have a big area for curtains, but I can't decide if the guitar pattern by itself is to busy for big curtains (top of window to floor). I could do a solid (or semi-solid) color for curtains and put a strip of guitar pattern on the bottom, but then no one would likely see the guitar pattern because there would be stuff in front of it.
Should I do the full length curtains? Do you have other ideas of what to do with the guitar fabric to help it be the centerpiece of baby's room?
As I was pondering this and hanging out with Jay tonight...I realized that the only pair of PJ's I have ever bought him from a store (thanks to hand-me downs and grandmas) are these monster PJ's in the exact colors I am loving for the nursery.
