Crib, Bedding, and Jammies
Made for Baby Ellery by CarlaC
This little guy and his froggie friend are having a fantastic time in their "pad." Frogs and toddlers have a lot in common, you know. They love to hop all around, adore splashing in mud puddles, and are known to vocalize their happiness with very funny noises.
This solid wood crib was handcrafted by me using my own design. Lengths of basswood were meticulously cut to size and pieced together for a size that is big enough for Ellery, but takes up a minimum of display space. The crib is stained a rich golden oak and is protected with a light coat of varnish.
The headboard and footboard are flanked with decorative dentil molding and an arched wooden applique. The bedposts have ball finials and feet. Swampy scenes are handpainted on both the headboard and footboard and are surrounded by tiny hand-cut frames.
In keeping with the fun froggie theme, the crib bedding is made of a mix of gingham, checks, and nature-inspired quilt fabrics in shades of green, yellow, and blue.
The coverlet features a happy frog pieced together from mottled and spottled fabrics. He has white button eyes, and he sits on a green lily pad floating on cool blue water fabric. The coverlet is backed with super soft light green minkee.
The pillow-top mattress is covered with a fun tiny frog print fabric. The crib bumper is made of blue and green gingham and is trimmed with yellow gingham piping. It is backed with a spotty light green fabric that shows through the crib slats.
The sides of the crib bumper have insets of frog fabric squares. The one-piece design allows for easy removal when it comes time to make the bed.
Green ribbon "ties" are attached to the bed posts.
The bedskirt is made of green and yellow plaid and blue water fabric trimmed with with frog green rick-rack. It has rounded edges, and is backed with yellow gingham.
Cute and comfy pillows include a spotty light green pillow with a flat sham, a tiny frog fabric pillow with lily pad green sides, a water, check, and rickrack pillow, and a round gingham "yo-yo" cushion with a light blue pom-pom center.
Also included is a soft pair of footie jammies for lounging about the pad. These one-piece jammies have blue bottoms and a white long-sleeved top with a handsome handpainted frog face.
These two could jump and chirp all night long, but it is time to close those peepers!
