Customer Baby Bed Bumper Pad

Customer Baby Bed Bumper Pad

This custom bumper pad was made using the stripe from a previous window drape. The red ties and piping were made from the drapery valance fabric and new gray minkee fabric was used for the inside of the bumper pad. The padding is 1″ polyester quilt batting. This pad will match the roman shade shown in a previous post. These two bumper pads took about 9 hours to make, due to the time involved in repurposing used fabric.
NOTE: It is important not to use bumper pads until the baby is old enough to turn over or move away from the pad!

Duvet Cover and Bed Skirt

Duvet Cover and Bed Skirt

My beautiful customer gave me permission to share this photo of her bedroom. She is legally blind and she can see the bold, vibrant colors used in decorating her bedroom by her sister. I was commissioned to create the duvet cover and bed skirt for this queen size bed. The work included making 14.5 yards of piping which is used around the color block and completely around the duvet cover. The color block will eventually be decorated with applique art by the customer. I used velcro as the closure at the bottom of the cover. It does not interfere with the decorative effect of the piping.Time to make these two items was about 14 hours. (The duvet was not yet in the cover at the time of this picture.)

Patio Umbrella Fitting

Patio Umbrella Fitting

Last fitting of the umbrella to the mast. This has been an interesting experiment and I like it! This umbrella is 8 sections that are 55″ wide at the bottom edge – miles and miles of sewing. There are three sections that overlap to let the air flow. I really liked the old one and this one looks like it will fit just fine!!
