Nesting = Sewing
Im in full nesting mode right now, getting ready for this baby. I decided to go with a Dinosaur theme in our nursery and fell in LOVE with this fabric from Fabric.com! Thanks to my friend Margaret I was able to get it at a discount and with free shipping using a coupon. Such a blessing! This is the cutest dino fabric Ive come across so far, too, so I was really pleased at the find.
This is all cotton except for the white with colored dots that one is flannel.
I have a list of projects I want to complete before the baby comes, and had originally hoped to find a crib set with dinosaurs that I liked but so far I cant afford anything I like and I dont like anything so much I want to spend a ton of money on it. Plus, this will probably be our last baby I dont want to spend a fortune on something Im going to end up giving away after a year or two. BUT I do want something quality, so I decided to go with a plain crib set that I can add dinosaur accents to. Ill probably go with a pastel green and make blankets and dinosaur-shaped stuffies for him. I might even be able to applique dinosaur shapes on crib set, itll just depend on the material.
Here are some of the projects I intend on making with these fabrics:

I also want to make blankets, a crinkle toy/lovey, and burp cloths maybe I should have ordered more fabric! lol
