I use baby showers as excuses to come up with new items for the shop. I love that part of it all, the creating, the pattern and pallet mixing but with everything else that goes with running the shop and filling orders I rarely find time for it.
So the night before the shower (as is always the case with gifts and personal sewing projects) I made these. I started with the little swing top and wrap around bottoms set but I just was so in love with the fabric that I kept going. The patterns screamed for something happy like balloons so next came the onesie and I figure a girl can never have too many clothes so I made a pair of red bloomers too for good measure.
The fabrics just grabbed me and I started imagining a vintage circus or carnival and then I started thinking that I do really adore these colors (especially the turquoise and red) and I really do love the fabrics (and what do you know I have a whole bolt of the colorful print and the turquoise) and then it hit me, this is what I’ll use for my bedroom.
I have plans I tell you. The old plans I wasn’t so excited about so nothing ever happened. But this, I feel inspired. My bedroom will no longer be a old white down blanket (meant to go in a duvet) and empty white walls. I think I can do it now. Yeah I’ve said it before. I totally admit to decorators anxiety I feel like I’m the only one in all of blog land with this problem, everyone elses houses are so gorgeous and beautified, my walls are so empty really I need help! I get so so insecure about any idea and for goodness sakes is just decor I could change it any time but I still over think it insanely. But I’m hoping this one will stick because I’m excited.
Any ways I adored how these baby sets came out. They are in the shop if you like them too. And now you have a sort of sneak peak to my bedroom project. And as an extra bonus I recently learned how to balance on all fours on an exercise ball. Believe it or not but that tidbit is a hint to something that will be in the room. Wish me luck. And yes my friend did seem to like the gifts for her little girl.

Those are adorable! I love turquoise and red together.
The reason blogland is filled with beautifully decorated rooms is b/c you don’t take a picture and share until it’s done! Ha! I moved into a new house in May and people keep asking for pictures. But the rooms are just a mess of old furniture thrown places, so no pictures…
Good luck with the bedroom! We never do ours, we do the kids’ rooms first, then the living spaces, and then we never seem to get around to our room. Blah. Maybe you’ll inspire me!

thanks guys, amber you are so right! I’m going to force myself this time. Even if my excitement dies down a decorated non-perfect room will be better than what it is now!
Those balloons are so adorable! What perfect little outfits!
You are crazy talented! I LOVE that material. Wish I would have known about your shop when my girls were little!

I have decorators’ anxiety too! There should be a support group for people like us. The bedroom and living room are on my to-do list this year (if I can just commit…).
I wish you luck!
We can be decorating accountability buddies!
