Finally! Some pictures of baby bedding!

Do you remember when I told you that I was going to make my friend, Shea's baby bedding (if not, you can read about it here)?  Well, after I had told you about this adventure, I quickly got to work ordering fabrics from Fabric.com.  After getting them in the mail and seeing that the colors looked completely different in real life than on my computer screen (go figure) I sent them back (they have an AMAZING return policy) and ordered new Amy Butler patterns.  I loved the advice that my friend Cory gave me regarding doing Minky Dot on the inside of the bumpers, so that's exactly what we did!
Here's sweet Shea and beautiful Naomi, or Omi as they call her...this was a few short days after she arrived!
And now, she's anxiously awaiting (or napping through her anxiety) the call from IU that she's been accepted as an early applicant (Moms and Pops are both IU grads) :)


Anyways...I got busy working on the crib skirt, the bumpers and the blanket and I finally have pictures to show you!  Unfortunately, the blanket didn't make its debut in any of these pictures, but you can enjoy the rest :) (With the extra fabric I made a pillow with an "N" on it for Naomi).







And there it is!  The blanket was the floral fabric on one side and then a deeper pink on the back with the green as the binding....maybe Shea will remember to take a picture and send it so I can share it with you - although she is a bit busy now that Omi is around :).  I was super pleased with the outcome, so much that I decided to torture get myself into it once again for my sister!
