Bedding and Valances for Ashford

One of the cool parts about moving back to my hometown has been reconnecting with old friends. Like Melissa - she and I have known each other since we were really little. We went to the same church and lived only a few blocks away. As kids, people always thought we were sisters or twins since we looked a lot alike. Although we haven't stayed in touch, we have a ton in common and it's been wonderful to have her back in my life.

When Melissa told me last year that she was expecting, I knew I wanted to sew something for her little guy. We decided to do valances and crib sheets. She and I picked out fabric together for her vision of a navy, lime & gray nursery. Super cute, right??

The valances were an easy project, just sewing hems on all four sides. I did a wide hem on the bottom and added a little white oversized rick-rack I had laying around to make it look a little more polished.

For the crib sheets, I used a super easy tutorial that only required 2 yards of fabric and some 1/2" elastic. I think it only took about 20 minutes to do each sheet.

  1. The sheet is sooooo cute!!!! Crib sheets are something I've been wanting to try since I had my first son. Now my second son is nearly 4 and done with his crib mattress. Whoops! Clearly, that plan fell by the wayside. :P
