Finally I managed to put together the room decor for the nursery which has been transformed to baby room since she is in the crawling stage now. It took more than 1 year to finish, sounds like forever to me specially when we had to deal with the mess of changing the flooring. Actually I don’t think it’s ever finished … before I know, she will need big girl bed and the decor will be changed.
This post summarizes the DIY projects I did before, I put the link to the previous posts so it’s easy for you to find the tutorials… Enjoy!

Hopefully it brings inspiration.
When I found the crochet pattern (link : Koala pattern) for this cute Koala, I couldn’t resist to try it right away … such a cute amigurumi. I made a pair of it then put them with M wood initial for my baby nursery. Hopefully my little M will like it as much as I do …happy with how it turns out.

My 3rd post for Baby Nursery… As mentioned in previous post (baby nursey-part 1), the color theme for this nursery is blue and orange. Although blue seems to dominate the room since it’s applied as wall paint color, orange gives a bold character to the room when used as accessories or decoration, curtain is one of them.
Got the fabric for the curtain on sale at $6.69/yard at fabric.com … I had been looking for fabric in orange color, with fun pattern, thick material, and good price. When it arrived I was so happy, it was all that I looked for.. the print quality is nice and the cotton duck fabric looks expensive. If you are looking for customized window covering, instead of DIY project, maybe this website can help PaylessDecor.

Iron the hem for upper and bottom edges in with 1/4″ allowance.
Sew the pocket strips onto upper hem.
Love the color!
My initial plan was to make a fabric basket for organizing my baby bath and care stuffs, but then my addiction to crochet began so the plan was switched to crochet basket. I had been asking mr. Google for any free basket pattern, none was as I wanted… after seeing many crochet basket images, I thought I will just make it in all single crochet, no pattern needed, keep it simple and easy.
I used Lily Sugar’n Cream 100% cotton medium#4 yarn in natural color, the hook is F.
Start with making chain as desired length then continue with single crochet as many row as wanted to get the width. Once you have the rectangle you can build up the row vertically to get the height… that’s it!
