Work in Progress!

I love the design process, it is so much fun :)

A while back, a lovely lady contacted me about designing a bedroom set for her expected bundle of joy. She sent me these letters, the basis of the whole design.

My customer had a whole bunch of ideas of her own, so I really can't take credit for how it all worked out, but this is what we came up with!
First we thought that maybe we'd do something like this:

but then, she saw this set:

And so, we used her colors to come up with this:

My customer liked this, so I ordered swatches, and sent them down to her. Having the actual fabrics on hand, and having ordered her crib, we made a few changes, and now we're good to go, with this design!

Next step, order the rest of the fabric, and get started with the sewing. I'll post my progress pictures as I go :)
