Crossing stuff off the list!

The baby is on it’s way any time now and it won’t be more than 4 weeks. So I tackled some baby items on my list first.

First up was a new flannel rick rack blanket.

Have you ever looked at the price of bedding for a crib? If you want cute you are going to pay like $50 for one sheet! $50! That is insane! So I made my own. We do have other sheets from my daughter but I thought this baby deserved something new. I love this Wrenly Fabric from Free Spirit.

It’s bright, fun, non gender specific and I love it. Crib sheets are super easy to make and only took me maybe 30 mins and was only a fraction of the cost of expensive sheets.

We now have 2 diaper change areas. I tried to convince my husband that we could put one in the hallway and share with the 2 kids but he was a little resistant to that. So we bought a new change pad and re-purposed another piece of furniture. The change pad needed a cover and I ran into the same issue as with the crib sheet. I am not paying $40-$50 for a cover that I will most likely get poop and pee on! Not happening. So I made one from some chevrons and the Wrenly fabric from the crib. One thing I learned is that you really shouldn’t trust the measurements on internet tutorials…. just take a minute and measure what you are covering and then you won’t be making it twice.
