New Projects for a New Year

So it's back to work here...we had a super Christmas and New Year with our family-you know, it is great to have all of your grown children at home again :) And, Brantley-such a smart young man...spent Christmas Eve at home with me and Bobby....and, he knows that if you believe (and play the part)-Santa always pays a visit :) As long as you believe, Santa is real!!!
OK-with the decorations finally put away-I have finished a couple of projects that I thought I would share.
One- an Etsy custom order- nursery know, the ruffled edge bumpers and crib skirt. This client requested natural handkerchief linen -- here is the listing:
Classic nursery bedding in natural handkerchief linen, all prewashed and dried before construction. These softened linen nursery bedding pieces are finished with a 1" gathered ruffle edge. The four bumper pieces are made as separates...each with a zipper closure encasing the covered padded inserts. The bumpers are sewn with wide self-fabric ties that are made long enough for large bows. The crib skirt has a drop length of 17.5" including the ruffled edge.
I so enjoy making these sweet nursery pieces...and the softened linen is any color choice.
My other finished project is an ottoman and slipcover using medium weight chocolate brown linen. I made this slipcover in a simple structured style with a 1" gathered ruffle hem. This ottoman and slipcover will be sold together...but I would be happy to make a slipcover for your existing ottoman-for a great update! I have this ottoman and slip ready to deliver to our booth at Old South Antique Mall in Dothan...tomorrow :)
