the various kinds of bedding sets available for a tiny baby that doesn't even see colors? Did you ever think about how fun it would be to set up the crib, paint a wall or two and get ready for a baby to arrive?! And did you actually go out and buy a bedding set and use it for one child and maybe the second? And did you ever see something this cute!?
OR maybe something like this:
Cute right! Did you ever think that either of these would be priced at OVER $1000?
That's 3 zeros. One Thousand dollars. Ridiculous right?
So it got me thinking; why on earth would someone pay so much for an infant/baby/toddler to sleep in something that they 1) can't even enjoy the color scheme, b) care what they are sleeping in, and lastly likely destroy the 5000 thread count sheets with their bodily fluids.
Then my brain naturally thought, well why should I even bother looking at a bedroom set for this new little girl. The one I used for Blake was a gender neutral theme and I loved it. Sadly it got water damage and grew some black mold so that Reese missed out on any "cute" bedding. Anyhow, there is a cute bedding set that I saw. But again, why spend $180 on a bedding set.
Yes I know it's cute. But really I'm thinking it's ridiculous. So I've been thinking I'd like to make the bedding and learn something new while picking the colors that I would love to see in our baby's bed. Here's a swatch of the idea I have:
Very similar bet you get the colors I'm thinking about!
But then while I was looking for those swatches I found these!
And with coupons and spending some time learning a new sewing skill, well that's the best price out there!
So give me your input on color. The light blue ones, the bright blue and reds, or the yellow-y floral one.
