DIY baby bedding.

Just a quick post to share the baby bedding I just finished for a good friend of mine that just had a baby. She has very classic simple style. She mentioned that she wanted something along the lines of this bedding shown below. This gorgeous linen bedding set is from Layla Grace. Isn't it lovely? The price tag, however is not so lovely. $205 just for the bumper!! What????

Anyway, I volunteered to try my hand at making the bedding for her with my favorite go to fabric.... no, not burlap.... the other one. It is called Osnaburg. It is also found in the utility fabric section and is only about 3.99/yd at any fabric store. It has a lovely natural linen look to it.

I gave her the  bumper a few weeks ago and she sent me some of the pictures she took of it.

I used a ruffler foot to do the ruffles on each side. And I included nice wide ties. 

Today I finished the comforter to go with it. It is also done with the osnaburg and has ruffles all around. For a little personalization I freezer paper stenciled baby girl's name on it as well. 
The font is Jane Austen from I love it!

 And since I had leftover ruffles I didn't want to waste, (It just seemed wrong to throw them away) I made a matching pillow and stenciled Aniston's birthdate on it.

I hope you and Aniston like it Julie! I can't wait to see the finished Nursery!

Update: Julie took this great picture of the comforter in the room.

A side note: My sewing machine died right at the end of making the comforter. Like, the needle will NOT move. So this pillow is all made with stitch witch and liqui-stitch. Isn't that ruffled flower precious?? I love it!
