Hey folks! Last Friday on Instagram, I shared a sneak peek of a leather ottoman I was making for BG-dub’s nursery. I’ve received lots of emails and messages inquiring about the pattern and the material. I sewed more projects last week than I have in my entire adult existence. Truly. We made some crib bumper magic happen. We made some nursing covers. We got some pillows up in here. A car seat cover. A cape for Logan. Oops. Wasn’t supposed to share that last item.
Baby Girl’s nursery is pretty small. I’ve been on the hunt for a super duper comfy rocker/glider and I found one! Keeping it a secret until it arrives. Just you wait for the unveiling.
Because her nursery is so tiny, I knew I couldn’t bring in a giant ottoman. I decided to create an ottoman using some amazeballs vinyl leather I happened upon in Idaho. I used Amy Butler’s Gumdrop Pillow pattern to create the ottoman. I should tell you that I’m not a fan of following patterns. I can’t. I’m impatient. I can’t read. I get really flustered and start to sweat when I have to cut out and pin the pattern pieces. Luckily, this was not the case with Amy’s (I’m on a first name basis) pattern. It took about five hours from start to finish. It would take Y-O-U less time I’m sure. I was really slow moving around the floor cutting things out. And then I took a break to eat some chicken wings.
Because I love the ottoman, and because I love chicken wings, I’ve decided to give away a few of these patterns to y’all! Three lucky winners will be randomly selected and gifted the pattern for gumdrop pillow heaven! Details below!
