You may have been following along with my paper printables and things from Miss Alice’s delivery and announcements, so this blog post will probably come as no surprise to you! Around here, watercolor florals are not in short supply. We celebrated her first birthday with a simple family party (blog post coming soon), and surprised her when she woke up to a room filled with balloons!!! She was so excited to see her siblings’ happy faces playing in her room and couldn’t stop batting balloons around.
DIY Watercolor Floral Crib Sheet
My gift to Alice was her new crib sheet with fabric I designed for Spoonflower. They kindly sent me two yards of their Basic Cotton Ultra in the pattern Watercolor Peonies for Alice. Sooooooo in love!!!!! It’s such a great print, and it’s so crisp and pretty on their Cotton Ultra. And it’s washed up wonderfully so many times already. It matches her swaddler from the hospital, and turned out exactly how I imagined it. I looked forever for something similar in a crib sheet and couldn’t find anything I liked, so I made my own. And it took me less time to sew it than it took me to write this blog post!!!! It was SOOO much faster than I imagined! 😉 You can find links to the fabric by clicking here. And here’s a good crib sheet sewing tutorial. I’ve also got a great video tutorial over on the Spoonflower blog on how to make your own no sew blanket so be sure to check that out too.
Her new crib sheet is my favorite thing in her room, and I love the thought of her waking up on top of a pattern that I painted for her before she was even born.
DIY Watercolor Floral Garland
My other gift for alice was making her another cute banner to celebrate. I loved the cute bassinet one I made for her birth (free download for that here) so much that I wanted something with that same look and feel. I used my wonderful watercolor pattern fill for Cricut. If you haven’t used a Cricut Design Space pattern fill before, there’s a great tutorial here. You can find the same pattern fill I used here in the pattern library.
I’ve created a little screen capture video tutorial for you to see how I did the pattern fill. Click here to continue to Cricut Design Space, and try it out for yourself for free! In design space you can try out images and plan your project before purchasing any files which I LOVE.
