Nursery Update

So I thought i would share a few updates that has been going on in the Nursery, (i must do a proper post)

So weeks and weeks ago we got a huge wall sticker for babys room.

I think we got it from here

So we got cutting (a rare day to see rob is a 'sports top') and yes he is left handed he does not cut well lol 

So i did the cutting and he did the sticking while i sat in my rocky chair lol 

This thing is pretty big, there are tons of Etsy but mainly from the US and therefore naturally postage is a million pounds lol so finding them on a UK site is great. 

We got to pick the colours for the tree (its a tree if you hadnt guessed) 

And this is it all done. Its awesome! We love it so much. 

What I did a while ago was start to make some arm rests using the left overs from the quilt i made 

They were pretty much done but they needed something to keep them on the chair, i tried sticky velcro but it wasnt strong enough so i gave in and ordered some sew on velcro.

So i used some of the sticky velcro to the chair and stitched the other on the cushion.

Im not sure if i have said how i made this, i basically did it like a pillow and used really thick wadding it was a bit of a struggle through my machine but got there eventually.

As I was in the sewing mood i thought i would finally get around to covering the foot stool. 

I again used fabric that matched the quilt and now the arm rests. 

I kinda just measured the footstool and copied. 

Its not perfect but its done and I am really pleased with how it looks.

Lots of lovely ticks off my to do list.
