I originally bought the bassinet because it was in such good condition and thought it would be a good mobile and functional baby center for this little baby on the way. Unfortunately after I washed it it seemed to be in worse condition than when I bought it. The terry cloth material that lined the inside of it got all 'pilly' and over time the whole style of it bugged me more and more. Eventually I decided to be brave and attempt to recover it. Here are the results (I can't believe I pulled it off and love it):
I got the pattern for the birds in the mobile here.
In other baby getting ready news I received this blanket in the mail this week:
I bought it here on etsy. I love it too, even more than I thought I would.
My next couple of projects in the works include:
- binkie clips
- burp rags
- quiet books
...oh and clean house, make some freezer meals, and pack my hospital bag.
We'll see what I can get to before this baby comes... maybe I better start by packing my hospital bag;)
