If you have been a LONG time reader of IC I have blogged before about my frustration with the whole “baby bedding in a bag”. I absolutely loved my son’s Osh Kosh baby bedding. The bright colors, the patterns, the texture..it had it all.
However, when I upgraded his room to a big boy room I was disappointed there was not a twin size comforter I could purchase to go with the bedding I received as a gift. Those bedding sets are pricey. I believe mine was $250. I had a bunch of friends “go in” on it to purchase it for me. So I have vowed to reuse all the fabric from the bedding.
I also redid a child’s size glider for the reading nook in my son’s room with the quilt….
I also used scraps for some initial bookends…
I reused the baby pillows and threw them on his big boy bed.
Well Isaac is almost 4. I think it is time to upgrade the pillows as well. I reused some of the fabric for the cording on his new “adventure pillow.” I mean look at this kid, he is the epitome of adventure… So I embroidered a pillow with the definition of adventure on it (designed by my friend Amy) and added some colorful cording to coordinate (say that 5 times fast!).
