you may recall my panic from awhile back… and all days since…

that darn, sweet, tiny nursery. how was i to outfit it?

i really love this bedding set:

but just couldn’t resign myself to make the mega down payment for the 4-piece set and all it’s coordinating cuteness… especially if i planned to ditch the bumper once The Bumpit starts to roll about…

so i searched, and i searched, and i searched… and then i searched some more… but still loved that Delilah from Cocalo Couture.

but alas… two friends sent me on search through this wonderful blog (thanks Nia & Andrea!) and then i found this post and my DIM (Do It My-own-self) instincts kicked in… and i was off….

i have always loved the Lotus collection from Amy Butler… (and in fact, have purchased a purse from etsy with some of the beautiful fabrics!) and my brain started turning and i realized, “I can do that!”

though, i will say- finding these fabrics in Lincoln was not meant to be.

but i finally found them online, and rush shipped them to myself right here in NE…. they should be here in time for a weekend of sewing fun!

all the more fun to find this post over at Young House Love…. so fun that they are expecting a babers too… ;-)

yes, i can do this. and i will post pictures upon the completion… as long as it’s presentable.

or, i’ll just run out and buy that Delilah set and post pics of that! :-)
