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.
