I have been looking for a cradle for Aria...Nathania's daughter...for a long, long, long, time. The Dutch in me doesn't want to pay too much for it so I have been patiently watching craigslist and the thrift stores. Well yesterday I went to Value Village and found a cradle!!! It was however, not as big as I wanted, but then I realized that it would be perfect for this bear she carries around EVERYWHERE! Nathania actually has three of them so that she can wash a dirty one and Aria can always have one:)
So, the cradle is not done...it needs some cleaning up yet, but I thought I would show the bedding that I made. First I made a little mattress out of some muslin and scraps of batting that I had on hand.
I then proceeded to make a little quilt.
I did some funky stitching to actually quilt it but I think it turned out pretty cute...still have to stitch the binding on the back:)
It's a little big for the cradle, but it will be perfect for the bear and when it's folded in half it fits just right:)
Not, wanting Aria to have only one blanket I made a little crochet blanket!
Not sure if I'm gonna keep the cradle a wood color or paint it....what do you think I should do?
