Name: Melanie

Project: Coop's Crib

Anyone who has sewn for a son knows the fabric industry is skewed toward the feminine, but Melanie's choice of Wallflower in Mustard suits both her growing son and his modern room. Jump below for details.

Explain how Amy Butler inspired this entry.:
I LOVE Amy Butler fabric! When I saw this particular print I thought it would be perfect for my son's room. I knew I wanted to make his crib skirt and blanket since I wasn't going to use bumpers, I didn't want to buy a set. The color goes perfectly with the other textiles in the room, and the print feels geometric to go with the lines of the furniture. And it is definitely growing with him, it doesn't look 'babyish'.

How did you make your project and what items did you use?:
The crib skirt is made of a rectangle of cotton, with 4 panels of the Amy Butler fabric sewn 1 on each side. And the blanket is a larger rectangle with 1 side cotton chenille type fabric (very soft) and the reverse side the Amy Butler fabric. I ordered the Amy Butler fabric online at Fabric.com and bought the other fabrics at Yardage Town.
