While searching for what I wanted to do (um, I mean WE wanted to do) for the nursery, I came across the Skip Hop Treetop Friends decor and knew that was what I wanted. But, they didn't really have the things I wanted, and, really, I knew I would do it myself anyway. I found fabric on sale at JoAnn's and waited for blackout fabric to go on sale (I got it for $1.50 a yard!). Then, I had to find some pictures online to use as patterns. I'm not artistic what-so-ever, so I needed a little help there. I made pattern pieces for everything, cut them out of the fabric I wanted and then laid it out on the fabric. Then came the REALLY tedious part. I decided to hand stitch all the pieces onto the fabric. My grandma helped me complete this project, which I think is so fun! Here she is sewing away.
