Trent's Bedding

My husband and I went out to Ikea yesterday to see if we could find some fabric to make our baby boy's bedding out of. Low and behold, they had some GREAT choices.
We picked these three:
I am going to make his bumper out of it and probably some curtains. The leaf/orange fabric will be one side of the bumper, the b/w stripe will be the other, and the green will be the trim. He is going to be the coolest baby in town!
I was reading in my "American Baby" magazine last night that black and white is a good choice for babies because it is stimulating. They are drawn to the contrast. Looks like we made a great choice! Oh and his walls will be light grey. I can't wait to get it all finished.

I have been working on a very fun project, but I can't post pictures for a few weeks because it is a gift. It is CUTE!

I hope you like my new header made of felt. I Love it! I needed to spice things up a little and I wanted people to see what I do right when they come to my blog. =)

Thanks all! I can't wait to get started making his bumper.

DF: I'm keeping the anthro bedding for the future. That bed will be lent to our bffs Michelle and Klint. =) Must make room for baby!
