I posted the winners for the crayon roll-ups! Check the giveaway post to see! Is it you? If winners do not claim their prizes within 48 hours I will pick new ones. Really wanted that crayon roll-up? Don't worry I will be adding the tutorial tomorrow. Also you know how I was painting that crib? Turns out painting a spindle crib is a HUGE pain. And I am out of paint. Gotta get to Lowe's..... does it feel like this room is ever going to be finished? Ya I feel that too.

Re-made Bassinet

Ok, I don't have a tutorial for this. However, this is a great way to turn your drab yucky bassinet into a bunch of fun. 

To recover something it's easiest if you get your seam ripper out and take the original apart at every seam. This will give you your pattern, I always add 1/2 an inch to all edges to allow for extra seam allowance. Take pictures of the seam ripping process and mark your new pieces accordingly so you can remember how it needs to be stitched back together.

I really do love this bassinet........... if only my munchkin would stay asleep in it.
