Baby Girl Pillows

I'm still trying to tackle the list of things to do for Baby Girl's room. Yep, my almost 8 month old Baby Girl's room!! It's a process for me, ok?

I just recently whipped up a bunch of pillows from scraps I had from other stuff for her room.


The 2 Michael Miller prints are her main ones, used in her bedding, changing table pad, curtains, diaper bag, and rocking chair. (None made by me!!)

The other two, she has blankets made out of- the animal print blanket made by me!

Sewing pillows, blankets, and burp cloths is all I've mastered so far! Oh and her changing table cover, which I hope to feature soon!


I've got plans to paint, replace the lid and cover the lid of this hope chest here, that matches the furniture I had as a kid. I got rid of the rest of the set before I knew I was pregnant! Had I been reading blogs at the time, I may have kept it. However it had over 20 years worth of layers of glossy paint, so I'm not sure I could've handled the experience!

This bench will get a coat of white, and possibly black painted scrolls.

I'm hoping this will be a lovely little spot for her to curl up and read some books as she grows older!

Just needs a few more bigger pillows that I may have to actually buy fabric for instead of resorting to scraps that only yeild small pillows! :)

  1. I love all of these colors together!!

    I wanted to answer your question on NJAH about gathering and dust ruffles...this would work for dust ruffles, but it is a looonnngg gathering section and the threads are prone to breaking. An easier method is to loosely zig zag stitch over string (I've heard of using dental floss as well) and pull that as it is less likely to break. Happy sewing!!


Let me know what you think!!! I'd really love your comments!! Thanks for visiting me!!
