Patchwork Toddler Bed

Patchwork Toddler Bed

I made a toddler bed!! \o/

Patchwork Toddler Bed

I did this all by myself! heh 😀

Patchwork Toddler Bed

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!! 😀

Extra Guy Stenciled Onesie

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! 🙂
