Baby's Nursery

I've always loved to do arts and crafts.
I think it's my mom's influence. When I was little she was always working on some DIY project.

When I started decorating my baby's nursery I couldn't find any crib bedding set I fell in love with, so I decided to decorate with things I liked, whether there'd be a theme or not in the end.

So these are the little projects that gave the nursery the "feel" I was looking for:

Rag Flowers

I like how playful it looks and I love the colors!

I used a silky and very thin fabric.

Pillow + Flowers

For the flowers I used the cheapest and thinest kind of cotton fabric as opposed to the regular 100% cotton because I didn't want the edges to be very sharp. I had an oversized organic t-shirt I used on the back of the pillow, so it feels VERY soft, and I made the pillow form with another oversized t-shirt I had. On the sides I opted to leave it seamless so I tied 2 bows on each side to make it cuter and it's easy to take it off to wash it.

Felt Birds

I'm making more of these birds! Maybe a crib mobile?
They're just so cute and there're lots of cute patterns online!

Felt Frame

Very simple. That's the look I was looking for.
Same fabric as the pillow flowers.
