Bedding

Surprisingly, I've had quite an easy time finding bedding that I absolutely love. The only problem... it is $618 from Posh Tots. Yeah right!

I found the zoo print fabric online, and the other fabrics I'm pretty sure I can get something similar from JoAnn's. I'm going to make this sucker! That, or maybe hire it out to have someone else do it? How would I go about finding someone to make it?



I also want to get this Jellycat Truffles blue elephant for him. In the picture it looks like a stuffed animal, but it actually is like a big, fat, round, squishy pillow when its laid out flat. And its sooooo soft.
(here's an example of how it looks all laid out)

LOVE this bedding. I also liked that elephant you picked out. It could be a good Christmas gift to him.

That is soooo cute. We are doing a jungle themed room too. My mother in law has made both the girls' bedding, so she will be making Bennett's too. It saves a lot of money. Bianca's bedding set would have cost upwards of $700 and we didn't even spend $100. It was great. I splurged a little on some of her fabric (silk), but it's gorgeous.

My mom has made crib bedding and she says it's relatively easy, especially if you use a pattern from Simplicity or something like that. Great choice!

hi there, i found your blog through ivillage and just wanted to pass along this site for a lady that makes custom bedding with your fabric! i think i'm going to go this route with my baby. http://ohpetitbebe.freehostia.com/index.html

No problem! I thought it sounded reasonable, as well... especially because I think I'd go crazy trying to make it myself! :)
