Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice...

That's what little girls are made of...And, of course, the nursery should reflect such sweet thoughts!
As I have stated in other posts, nurseries rank among my favorites in sewing projects-this one included! A cute array of mix and match fabrics, some ready made accessories, and cute trims all blended beautifully to make a darling custom nursery for the precious baby-to-be.
The photos I am showcasing include: a cozy platform swivel rocker slipcovered in mixed fabrics with pink cording, of course; a ruffled lumbar pillow to coordinate with the rocker; ready-made curtain panels of white with pink dots detailed with an added band of green and pink toile and cute ribbon pom pom tassel trim with green scalloped edging sewn onto a smaller pink fabric band; a roman shade of the toile fabric with a band of solid pink at the hem, interlined for body and lined with blackout for naps during the daytime; a crib skirt of gathered green cord cotton chenille with a band of solid pink at the hem; and, my favorite-the crib quilt/coverlet...a patchwork of the assorted fabrics, corded with the solid pink and edged with a ruffle of the toile-and backed with the softest pink minky dot fabric.
I was thrilled to be called for this project-I actually slipcovered this chair when "mom-to-be" was just a little girl...for her room. Wow-where does the time go? But that is the beauty of slipcovers for special pieces of furniture- it gives the piece a makeover. And with pre-washed and dried fabrics and a zipper closure on the seat cushion, this slipcover will launder easily.
Just a note...these pictures were taken while the items were being, if possible, I will take more at installation!
