As you know, Robert and I have been looking for crib bedding. While we wanted something "outdoorsy" we have been unable to find exactly what we're looking for. So went a different direction. I found an airplane themed bedding that we both liked, but honestly we were still wanting that "outdoorsy" bedding. And as March quickly approaches, I'm getting more and more excited to get our bedding and get the painting done. So Sunday after small group, Robert and I went looking. Our first stop was Target. Although we didn't find anything in the baby section, we found exactly what we were looking for in the kid's bedding!! So after looking at it and dreaming about how we could decorate the room, we left empty handed and disappointed. We made our way over to Walmart because I had seen some bedding on their website that I thought looked cute and actually liked what we saw. So we purchased that bedding and took it over to my parents house because I wanted to wash it. (They have a front loader and it's so much easier on clothing than my washer.) While we were showing them the bedding, we also told them about finding exactly what we wanted in the kid's section at Target. This got my mom thinking. She suggested that we could have the bedding altered and essentially turned into crib bedding.
That was all we needed to hear! We were off to Target to purchase the twin size bedding that we love!! Yay, sounds great right?! Unfortunately, the next day I took it to a lady here in town that has done all of my alterations. She's very good at what she does and so reasonably priced. However, when I asked her to convert the bedding into crib bedding, she said no. Talk about bursting my bubble!!! So I headed to another lady in town that my mom has used before and asked her if she could help me out. Yes, she can but only creating the comforter part. Apparently the bumper is what's such a big deal. So, here I am back at square one. We DO NOT want to give up yet because this bedding is just what we were looking for. Do you know anybody or know somebody that knows somebody that might be able to help us?
Here's a link to the bedding, if you're curious. It's even more cute in person because you can see a lot more detail on the scene part that doesn't show up online.
