You know those moments that make you realize how old you are? I've had one of those recently.
Waaaaay back when I was 19yrs old, I met a life long friend. When we met, she had a little baby.. named Kayla. I watched Kayla grow up over the years... she got married.. and now she is expecting her first little baby.
Here is her belly... I love this picture.
So when she found out she was expecting - before she even knew if it was a boy or a girl.. she wanted the Sock Monkey theme.
I offered to make the nursery items for her and her sweet hubby.
As soon as she found out she was having a girl.. I was secretly hoping she would change her mind and go with something pink and super girly. Since I only have boys.. I was dying to do something pink.
But we moved ahead with the sock monkey and honestly, it turned out so cute!!
Here is a snapshot..
And a close up of the bumper pads.
And the curtains..
And a pillow..
This is the back of the pillow..
But, when I drove the 4 1/2 hours to deliver it all, we discovered that the crib skirt was too long. So I had to bring it back home with me and shorten it a bit. So here it is hanging over my kitchen island since I don't have a crib in my house to display it.
I used this pattern to make the skirt - but shortened to only 14 inches long.
Her is the insides of the pleats.
I have a few more blankets that I'm working on for her. She is just days away from delivering. I can't wait!!!
