Ready for baby!

I finished the baby bumper and mobile with little time to spare! I love how it turned out, especially since it was so easy. I made 6 different bumper sections each with a different print from the Robots line by David Walker. I LOVE this fabric. Its so fun and bright. I do have a pattern for a crib bumper by Simplicity, but I didn't like a lot of things about it so I took the general measurements from it and figured the rest out myself.


I also "made over" our old mobile. It used to be a safari theme mobile. I made some felt shapes that match the fabric and sewed up a quick little cover for the arm of the mobile using my favorite Walmart polka dot fabric. It really was super easy. Im not a huge fan of the robot head shape on the mobile, but Avery said its his favorite so it stayed.

The shapes are two rockets, a robot face, and a planet. Its really hard to get decent pictures of a mobile, so sorry this is the best I could do.

There are more plans for this room in the near future, but since this baby is being born on Friday (yay!!) they will have to wait a little longer.

For a closer look at the fabrics see this post.

I talked to Amy and Leslie. They spilled the beans about Baker, and I can't wait to see pictures of the Brad haired Avery.
