I don't know if any of you remember (as this was nearly a year ago), but Momma B's parents got us a crib and a changing table for Christmas last year. I actually never thought much of the style or use of it until now because, well, we weren't pregnant. And it's been sitting in the closet of the guest room ever since. However, we're now at a point where we have to think about a nursery and I realized that the crib, though really nice, is definitely not our style. Our space is on the smaller side and we're unsure of whether we can fit two full-sized cribs in there or if we need to go with mini-cribs. In addition, we definitely are going to need at least one dresser with twins and the space we have does not allow for a dresser, two cribs, a glider, and a changing table. We need to get furniture that's a little more multi-functional. We're now thinking they need to be returned for something that is more "us" and more in-line with what limited visual we have of what we want the nursery to be.
This is the crib, changing table/dresser, and glider we want:
Now, I know I've just gotten back into sewing - and perhaps I'm being overly ambitious - but I really want to make the crib sets for PB&J. I want to make as much as I can for the nursery, actually. I have a fabulous book by Amy Butler called Little Stitches for Little Ones that has many different things that come so close to what I've had pictured in my head, so it's been a wonderful inspiration. And just yesterday I found the fabric collection that I want to make the nursery set; thankfully, Momma B loves it just as much! So I present to you the Alphabet Soup collections:
|Alphabet Soup - Boy (Riley Blake Designs)|
|Alphabet Soup - Girl (Riley Blake Designs)|
After the FET, Momma B and I couldn't get twins off the brain and, well, ta-da! Now, honestly, I can't shake the feeling that we have one of each gender in there. I won't be disappointed if my instincts are not correct, but that is really what my heart is telling me. SO I have a question for you, my dear readers and blog-friends, if there is one of each - how would you coordinate the nursery? Personally, I'm leaning toward having one crib set in the boy collection and one in the girl, since the color pallet is exactly the same and the coordinating fabrics are also the same. I think it would be so cute to have it look similar, yet different. Yet the boy collection is quite neutral so really would work for both genders. So would you make each crib set the same or coordinate between the two? Please help! (Poll is to the right and will be open all week!)
