While the boys are out in the sunshine, I’m keeping myself busy at home. We’ve been talking about moving Lucas to his bedroom. Until now, we have been happily cosleeping. But he’s getting bigger and we feel it’s about time for him to have his own space at night (and for us to get our space back too!).
We have tried a couple of times in the past to move him to his bedroom without success. I am terrible with the getting up in the middle of the night, especially if I’ve been asleep for less than 1 hour. It didn’t work out, but we are going to try again. So what’s a mum gonna do? Well, she’s going to make the little big boy’s space nice for him to feel comfy!
Today, I’ve added the owls bed sheet. My sister-in-law had bought this fabric for us in Japan and there was a lot of it. I didn’t know what to do with it. It’s such a cute print! It had been sitting out of my stash box for a few weeks, in an attempt to find some inspiration. As I was getting the bed ready, it struck me that this piece of fabric would make the perfect bed sheet for a little boy. I hemmed the sides, left the selvedge and there you go, instant cute bed sheet!
My second make of the day was the pillowcase to match the quilt. I had quite a bit of leftovers squares, so it was perfect. (I know I’m using the word perfect a lot today!) A length of white fabric, the squares soon together then appliquéd, french seams all around, and tada! A pillowcase. I didn’t do an envelope to keep the pillow in, but I’m thinking adding buttons/buttonholes. Or not. We’ll see.
I’m quite pleased with the results. Now, let’s hope that the little one will like his new stuff!
