Big Girl Room – Freshcut by Heather Bailey

I realized that I never really posted much about the little girls room that I designed for my daughter, Savannah Rose.  When we found out we were having another girl (sweet Matilda Jane), we decided that Matilda would get the nursery and Savannah would get a new “big girl room” (though she wasn’t too much of a big girl only being 16-months at the time).  So I thought I would share some more pictures with you of the things that I made for her room.

All of the fabric used (besides the polka-dot quilt backing) is Heather Bailey’s Freshcut.  These are all my own original designs (though I did use some clip-art templates for my fabric artwork), so if there is anything you would like a tutorial on, I would be happy to share my “how-to” with you as well – just leave me a comment!

Cottage Mama’s Note: I used clip-art templates from Martha Stewart’s website.  I enlarged them to my desired sized and broke them down into separate pieces to create my fabric artwork.  Click here to find the templates.  Again, if you would like any instruction or tips on how to make these items, please don’t hesitate to leave me a comment!

  17. OMG. I have three boys but you’re making me want a girl! That fabric is absolutely STUNNING. What a gift you have! I love everything you’ve done!

  18. I love your fabrics…I find out in 3 weeks what I am having and I too will need to decide what do to with the nursery (my Savannah will be 21 months when the new one arrives) Thanks for sharing with Made it Monday! Jules

  19. Congratulations Jules – I bet you are so excited to find out what you are having. My Savannah was 16-months old when Matilda came along – it’s fun having them so close together!

  20. I saw your link on the make it mondays party and of course, Heather Bailey popped out. I had to see! It’s beautiful! You obviously spent a lot of time and energy making this. I love Heather Bailey’s fabric. It turns out amazing everytime.

  21. For the Fabric artwork (LOVE!!!), did you do anything to finish the edges of the fabric so that they won’t fray?

  22. I actually put interfacing on the back of each piece of fabric to prevent fraying and to give it a little stronger look. Since it isn’t really being touched at all in the frames, I didn’t use any fray-check.

  23. Okay, I want this room for myself!! Love Heather Bailey! Everything about this room is delightful!! Thanks for linking up at Baby Week at Oopsey Daisy!!

  24. So cute! You should be so proud!

  25. Now this is fabulous~ Well done!

  26. How beautiful! You did a great job on all of these items.
