little.projects

so i am finally getting some little projects done that have been on the back burner for awhile. with the help of my wonderful mom and porter, we made bumper pads for porters crib. porter has been rolling in his crib and hitting his little head on the bars, so i figured it was time to finish this project. i am so happy with the way they turned out. i used a beautiful cream cotton fabric and some warm gray thread to go with the crib and then i quilted them.

i also realized that i haven't really showcased porter's room; and it is my favorite room in the house. i love the colours in this room, and it just came together so well. the crib is the sparrow crib from oeuf and the crib sheet is from dwell studios. i made the mobile and the winnie the pooh sketches were mine that used to hang in my room {my mom got them for england}. the painting hanging on the wall was also mine, it is "little rascals" by corinne hartley. the little red chair was found at an antique shop and leaning against it is russell's play gun. the dresser in the corner was found at a garage sale for $4 and the rocking chair was found at the cardston bargain barn for $5. and pillow in the corner of porter's crib is one of my daily reminders that motherhood is so worth it.
