WELCOME BABY

I did these rocking chair cushions a couple of years ago for a client in Point Loma.  It was her first baby and she chose a pink toile.  Instead of a self-welting, she wanted to have a purchased rope cording.  If you click on the picture, you can see the detail better.
She wasn't a really frilly person, but thought long ties with big bows would look good.  Since I do like bows and ruffles, I was more than happy to do it.
Years and years ago, in another lifetime, I sewed for the baby store Bellini.  This was for one of their clients.  I always loved this angel fabric and it came in about 8 different colors.


The client had this vintage wicker baby bed that got the same fabric.
I even made a little 'mattress' for the bottom.  The thing I remember most about this job was trying to decide which direction the angels should face on the hood.  I finally chose to put them so that the baby would be looking at them in the correct position and not upside down.  Not that a baby that small would even be able to distinguish the angels, let alone understand they were upside down, but just in case, I did it anyway.
