A couple of months before our beautiful bub arrived, we moved the Little Man into a big boy bed (actually, at the moment, it's just a mattress on the floor as I was worried he'd fall out and I like that he can get in and out of bed by himself). Looking in the shops, I really struggled to find any boy designs for a quilt cover (doona/duvet cover) that weren't skull and crossbones (not our kind of thing) or character merchandise (how long do they stay popular for?).
So of course, the answer was to make something myself. The most common words out of the Little Man's mouth are "dah dah dah" (car) and "choo choo choo", so a transport theme was the way to go. I found these stencils at a local craft store, which were perfect since drawing is not my strong point (and I'm sure we'll get lots of use out of them down the track).
Perfection-Induced Craft Paralysis, I finally got into the sewing and here's how it turned out:
P.S. Thanks for all the congratulations. I'm enjoying getting to know my sweet baby girl (whilst keeping a toddler at bay). A few people asked for her stats: she was born 3.508kg (7lb 12oz) and 52cm long (20.5inches).
