Cute Cute Crib!
Crib, Bedding, and Jammies
Made to match "Adorable Armoire" and "Beautiful Bed"
for Baby Ellery by CarlaC
Ellery is "tickled pink" to wake up in her new crib! It has all the elements a very girlie crib should have - gingham, eyelet, toile, and - of course - roses!
Ellery's solid wood crib was handcrafted by me using my own design. Decorative dentil molding and carved wooden appliques were incorporated into the headboard and footboard. Ball finials and feet were added to the bedposts. The crib was painted a creamy ivory, and then was accentuated with a rose pink glaze.
Little toile scenes were decoupaged onto the headboard and footboard and surrounded with a wooden frame. A bit of vintage picot trim was worked in atop the frame. Pink cottage roses were handpainted on the headboard, footboard, and on the sides of each post.
Ellery will dream in pink bundled up in this bedding! The comforter is made from super-soft minkee and is lined with pink gingham. A lovely rose and lace trim peeks out when the covers are turned down.
The pillow-top mattress is covered with a rosebud seersucker. The crib bumper is made of a pink heart calico print and is tied to the crib with mauve silk ribbons. The base of the bed is trimmed with a ruffled pink gingham bedskirt that is edged with white eyelet.
Of course, Ellery must have her tiny pillows. The ruffled rectangular pillow is made from an eyelet lined with batiste and trimmed with an eyelet ruffle, The bolster is made from a dark pink rosebud print and is trimmed with silk ribbon bows. The round "yo-yo" pillow is made from dotted swiss and has an organza rosebud in the center. Finally, the initial pillow is made from pink gingham, trimmed with pom-poms, and features a cross-stitched "E."
All the little hearts and roses are there to remind Ellery how much she is loved!
Ellery's jammies are made from a pink cotton knit. The sleeveless swing top is edged with a tiny white daisy trim and has a little daisy with green leaves at the neckline. The poofy little pants have pleats at the ankles and are embellished with the daisies. Her knit headband features a bit of eyelet and a daisy.
