Sewing a crib skirt

After sewing her crib blanket and bumper she needed a matching crib skirt. I took Chaser's Pottery Barn crib skirt and made it new. I cheated a little on this and only did three sides since you don't see the back anyways. It was fairly easy.

Bailey's BFF is born

What a wonderful day for the Salas family. If you have been following my blog while we have been in Okinawa then you have read about them. I was honored when they asked me to photograph the birth of the their third child Aaliyah in March of 2010 and equally honored to be there when Alannah was born.
I was also there when the kids came to meet their new sister. It really was a special moment, and I was able to capture it all on film for them.

Making a crib bumper for Bailey

After making Bailey's blanket for her bedding I needed a matching crib bumper. I couldn't find one that I loved and thought maybe I could make one on my own. I took Chaser's old Pottery Barn crib bumper and took it a part. (Ouch, that kinda hurt) I didn't take a lot of pictures because I forgot but here are a few.
I cut off the old fabric off the bumper and then made a new cover.
Sewing the pipping wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be.
Stuffing it back into the tube of fabric I made.......really hard.

Sewing Bailey's crib blanket

I went to a local fabric store and just fell in love with this fabric and decided it would be her crib bedding blanket. I couldn't find a bedding set that I loved for a price I was willing to pay. It turned out beautiful. Here it is waiting for me to quilt it together.

Typhoon Mufia

This typhoon wasn't as strong as the last one but came with much more rain.
