DIY Sewing for the Nursery - 12 Tutorials

I have great plans for my nursery now that I’m teaching myself to sew.  It’s exciting!  I mean, have you seen all of the adorable fabric out there?  I know that I could make exactly what I want for much cheaper than it would cost to buy a lower quality nursery set.  Getting all the matching odds and ends is pricey.  Here are some tutorials I intend to follow to make our nursery beautiful … enjoy!  And let me know in a comment if any of them inspire you!

We can’t forget swaddlers!  Swaddlers were lifesavers with my first baby and I have no doubt I’ll want them with my second, too.  These are two types of swaddlers.  The snuggler (left) includes a printable pattern at Craft and the DIY Swaddle Blanket (right) tutorial can be found at Pretty Prudent.
