I made a toddler bed!! \o/
I did this all by myself! heh
This heavy, sturdy (I’ve laid on it!) toddler daybed started as a little pile of lumber, and some fabric and batting. I used plans from http://ana-white.com.
You may recognize the patchwork fabric from this dress. I had just enough to upholster the bed. Although I didn’t really keep track, I don’t think I spent more than $40 on this project. Even if I would have needed to purchase the fabric, it probably wouldn’t have gone over $50.
When I get some coordinating bedding worked up I’ll post a photo or two of the really finished version. I may also tighten up some of the upholstery on that front board, now that I see it in the photos it is bugging me. Update: Finished! See the new post here.
Overall, I’m so happy with how this turned out! The plans were perfect, and now I’m even more excited about the other pieces I want to build. THANK YOU ANA!!
Isn’t this fun? I *loved* duck, duck, goose! I used another great David & Goliath print (and I’m already feeling the need to hunt down more of their awesome knits).
I have enough of this fabric for one or two more, so it’s in the shop.
I created a Facebook page for Pecan Sandies.
I could use some fans. Like me!
I’ve been excited about this dress for weeks, but I couldn’t find the time to sew it until today’s nap.
The “Pink Lemonade” fabric is a David & Goliath print. Isn’t it fun?
This dress is for Lyra, but I have enough fabric for a couple more, so it’s in the shop.
After seeing praises for freezer paper stenciling everywhere, I had to give it a shot.
There are plenty of tutorials available, and the process is very simple, so I won’t get into the details here.
I was very pleased with how well the freezer paper works as a stencil, I didn’t have any issues atall. Cutting the pieces is a little tedious, but not hard.
Freezer paper–it lives up to the hype!
