Crib Skirt and Ellie Pillow

Friday, September 2, 2011

It's time to start checking a few more things off the nursery to-do list. Can you believe we're roughly 7 weeks from the arrival of the new little munchkin? I chose a little peek-a-boo pleated design for the crib skirt. I can lead anyone to various tutorials or ideas if need, but I did things a bit differently for mine. Since my crib has a bottom drawer and is backed against the wall, the crib skirt only needs to hang down in front. Instead of a standard skirt with a piece that goes under the mattress, I elected to attach velcro to the mattress base and the backside of the skirt. I should be able to adjust the velcro when we need to move the mattress height. That's the idea anyway; we'll see if it works in practice.

Here is a detail shot of the skirt with ribbons where I tacked back the pleats.

We'll have a full size bed in the room as well, so I thought this fun elephant pillow would tie it all together. I found a free pattern on the Farbenmix site here. I adjusted the trunk, eye, and tail just because I can't seem to leave anything as is lately.

We should be done painting some furniture soon, so things are finally coming together! Inspiration for the pillow and crib skirt can be found on my pinterest board.
