Hope you had a lovely Easter (a week ago)! We headed up to Tennessee that weekend to visit with family and friends. Actually, the main reason for going was to throw a baby shower for my sister. She’s expecting a boy in August. (Yay!)
One of my planned gifts to Erin/Braden was to make a custom bedding set. Now, I’m not exactly the queen of sewing and I didn’t want to screw up my sister’s boppy cover so I started out on my own. I’m not thrilled with this fabric, but it was the best I could find at JoAnns that was both modern and coordinated with the color palate in the boys’ room. I like the chocolate minky on the back, though. It’s soooo nice and soft… mmmm.

Oh yeah! That’s me rockin’ my very first zipper install all by myself!
Now I don’t exactly have a tutorial to share or anything. All I did was pin my original cover to the fabric and cut around it. Once mine was sewn and adjustments were made, we did the same thing with my sister’s fabric.
Most of these pics are of Erin working on her cover. I swear I wasn’t like “Hey, here’s your gift. Make it yourself.” I kept getting called away on baby duty.
Fits like a glove! BTW, does this not totally look like an awesome afro? I kept putting it on my head and doing my most fabulous diva poses.
