Calling All Baby Bedding Designers

I know there are a ton of baby bedding designers who read my blog (LOL!) but seriously why do they not think to make a twin quilt in the same pattern as the baby bedding? I love Isaac’s baby bedding. I adore the colors, like the truck theme, and his room is just adorable. A bunch of friends chipped in when I was pregnant with Isaac to buy the bedding. I think it was like $250. Included in that set was a bumper, dust ruffle, crib sheet, and a baby quilt. Then another dear friend (Hey Jen!) bought me the valance and the lamp shade and diaper stacker. All together that is ALOT OF MONEY!

I never used the comforter except to hang on the wall. Then I ended up using a basket on his dresser for the diapers and ended up not using the diaper stacker. But now that we are putting him in a big boy bed (as soon I finish the bunk beds) I would love to keep the same colors and just add a quilt.


Seriously I am cheap, but I would have paid full price for two quilts in this bedding because I like it so much. (Ok maybe not full price, I would google it to no end to find the best deal, but still…)

Note: This is not Isaac’s room, I would never overdo it like that. This is the set with all the things I could have bought though.

So I think I may buy this bedding from Target. It isn’t exactly the colors but it is close. I may end up having to repaint the lower half (under the chair rail) to another color, bummer. But it is $59.99, which I know I could make it for at least half of that. We will see…

So that brings me to my main point of this post. I know… I am breaking my cardinal rule of being too wordy. I haven’t found any baby girl bedding that I love, love, love. And the cheap part of my brain is getting the best of me, which usually happens so I can’t see others spending $300 for bedding that I won’t use half of. So for $75 I bought material to make a twin size quilt (which I will hang on the wall until baby girl is in a big girl bed), re-cover Isaac’s glider, make a dust ruffle and some basket liners, and possibly a window treatment. So here is baby girl’s bedding…

It is a light blue, chocolate brown, pale pink, dusty rose, tan and yellow. I can’t wait to get started.
