My son Hudson is pretty excited because, in his own words, “I need another boy to talk to in this house.” Ha! I guess Abby and I don’t provide enough boyish entertainment during the day.
So, I’m sure you can guess the first thing I did when I got home from the ultrasound? Jumped online to pick out some inspiration prints for all the baby items I’m going to make! Baby blanket, burp cloths, some little clothes, balls, playmat. Oh my, the list could go on and on.
Anywhoo. I thought I’d share with you some of my inspirations for our new little guy’s decor. In his honor I’d like to start stocking some of these prints in my shop by the end of the summer. It’s a great excuse to branch out into organic cottons. 🙂
First up, my central inspiration is this Avalon print called “His Cruisers,” by Jay-Cyn for Birch Fabrics. Unbelievable cuteness without being “cutsie.”:
And lastly, since I have this fantastic print in my shop, I can’t forget to add Alexander Henry’s 2D Zoo in Pool:
Clearly, you can see my colors are blue and green. But don’t you think they are a special blue and green? 🙂
I also think this is a really cute idea for a blanket or play mat (see pic below). There’s a great tutorial here on how to make your own customized baby mat with fabric from Spoonflower. In case you haven’t heard of it yet, Spoonflower is a site where you can upload your own designs and print them onto fabric. Yeah. Amazing, huh?! I’d like to try it out and maybe this is my chance. Baby Boy Murphy might need one of these:
