Adventure Pillow

If you have been a LONG time reader of IC I have blogged before about my frustration with the whole “baby bedding in a bag”.  I absolutely loved my son’s Osh Kosh baby bedding.  The bright colors, the patterns, the had it all.

However, when I upgraded his room to a big boy room I was disappointed there was not a twin size comforter I could purchase to go with the bedding I received as a gift.  Those bedding sets are pricey.  I believe mine was $250.  I had a bunch of friends “go in” on it to purchase it for me.  So I have vowed to reuse all the fabric from the bedding.

I reupholstered a chair with some of the bumper fabric….

I also redid a child’s size glider for the reading nook in my son’s room with the quilt….

I also used scraps for some initial bookends

I reused the baby pillows and threw them on his big boy bed.
