Of course, its near on impossible to leave those stores without purchases in hand... and of course we ended up buying everything we need to make the bedding; despite the fact that none of it is what I had originally had in mind!
You might remember, I was going to go with a yellow geometric theme. The wall behind the cot is stripey, and I really wanted the colour in front to 'pop'! But I couldn't find any yellow fabrics like that and my persuasive MIL convinced me to go completely different, and a whole lot more colourful than I had otherwise intended!!
So, here's a sneaky at what will become the cot-skirt for my new baby:
The large, bold piece of fabric will make up the bulk of the 'skirt', with the green polka dot fabric and yellow rickrack forming a feature across the bottom.
