I needed to take a break from all the cutting so thought I would share my progress here. I'm working on a baby bedding set for a girl I've known since we were 5 and 8 years old. We grew up performing together and her brother was my dance partner for many years. She's been dancing and performing on broadway and touring in shows the last several years but is now having her first baby, a girl named Scarlette Rose. Anyway, she picked out fabrics and I offered to make her custom bedding as my gift to her.
Here are the fabrics she picked:
Here is what she wanted her bedding to be loosely designed to look like:
I just finished the bedskirt. Took me forever to cut the scalloped edging all the way around the skirt trim. I am pleased with the look so far, but after staring at those stripes for so long, I'd love some opinions on whether or not it is too busy. I've never sewn with the minky before so I'm not exactly looking forward to that part but otherwise should be a pretty simple assembly of everything else. What do y'all think?
