Finishing Up the Nursery

September 2, 2010

Chris and I have both switched into “get it done” gear in regard to Mackenzie’s nursery and finishing up our preparations for her. I have a few nursery projects that have just been dragging on, and I finally finished two of them Monday.

I am really pleased with the chair. There are so many little areas that are very imperfect, but for my first upholstery project, I think it turned out great. I {loosely} followed this tutorial. If you decide to take on a similar project, these instructions will help you out immensely.

I also wanted to use some of the fabric from the crib bedding on the wall, so I made a simple wall hanging. For a “simple” project, the embroidery took much longer than I expected – a solid six hours. Still, totally worth it. 🙂

Next up – sewing a big wet bag, a diaper pail liner, a nursing cover, and a nursing pillow. Thank goodness for a long weekend!
