As children grow, their rooms should grow with them. It’s not always easy in terms of budget and emotional issues. Children want to upgrade, but often have difficulty releasing familiar objects. One way of furnishing, a sense of familiarity is to restore and restyle baby boy woodland bedding using old bedding. Baby boy woodland bedding fabrics from things that the child has almost-but not really-grown-up.
Restyle an old blanket with trendy applications. Cut geometric shapes from colorful fabrics backed up by fusible shims and follow the instructions for securing materials together. Finish the application edges with zigzag stitches or use fabric glue to add narrow trim for a cheap and simple restyle. For a more ambitious project, make a baby boy bedding or throw by covering the entire blanket with overlapping shapes for a crazy quilt look with the same technology. Finish by gluing or sewing a large trim or fun pompom trim around the edges.
Recover small cushions with fabric pieces or patched from grown-up tee shirts for a stylish and personal touch. Cut patchwork squares from grown-up tee shirts, either from the child’s own team or favorite professional staff, and sew them together to make pillowcases or a duvet cover for a quilt. Measure the size of the woodland bedding you want to cover. Old sheets make great backing fabric. Sew three sides and leave the fourth open insert cover or pillow, add ribbons to close the lid, and stuff with a quilt or pillow for a brand new look made of recycled material that even your baby thinks is cool.
