Owl Themed Crib Bedding Set - Exclusive Custom Design!

I grew up making homework in the same room where my mom used to sew all kinds of stuff. Cute stuff.
I watched her sew from evening gowns to bedding to custom Barbie doll clothes. Yes, my Barbies had a big closet! They even had beach towels that matched their bathing suits!

I truly believe that I got the "need" to save all those leftover pieces of scrap paper from her. She would save every tiny piece of fabric around because she knew that one day, it would serve a purpose again...Like for making my barbies bathing suits. :)

Long story short, shortly after my father passed away last year, I thought that all this talent and knowledge my mom has for sewing, needed to be passed on to me somehow. After all, I am the crafty one in the family. I could - literally - spend hours trying to figure out how to craft something until I get it right. And today I know more about sewing than I did 6 months ago.

So, we sat down and decided to take One Cute Nursery {OCN} to the next level and jumped into the adventure of designing and sewing custom crib bedding.

Here is what I call OCN's "first baby". ****Update: this item sold on 02-07-13****

Owl Themed Crib Bedding Set
OCN has been a mix of all things baby, not only handcrafted decor, but we went from blogging about nautical nurseries, to gender neutral nurseries, to kids' parties decorations ideas. The party decor "niche" started growing so rapidly, I had the need to open an Etsy shop strictly for that, and I have named it Posh Paper Parties, the main reason I did this was because I knew that {as a shop} I wanted to separate the two markets.

We {mom and I} are looking forward to see what happens next! So, I wanted to share with all of you these beautiful pictures of this custom made crib bedding set. I have personally picked the fabric and put together a contrasting design.

Owl Themed Crib Bedding Set
The owls panel was the starting point. I fell in love with it!. Love the patchwork and the color palette. We decided to stick to the pale yellow {or cream if you'd like} and green.

The minky fabric is a must in a nursery. Is soft and cozy, so we used it on the crib bumper and on the reverse side of the owl blanket. We found the perfect fabric to make a matching fitted sheet for the mattress and you can see how seamless it all looks. Peaceful! I LOVE IT!

The accent pillow is also included in the set!

Owl Themed Crib Bedding Set
The bumper is one solid piece {6 batting pieces inside}, made out of non flammable, hypoallergenic, polyester fiberfill batting. We added a generous amount of fabric ties in order for the end user to be able to make bows {or knots} depending on their taste.

Love the ruffled skirt, but we are also looking forward to make a solid flat skirt in the future for a more modern look. I will come back to this post with an update whenever we make a new set!

Thank you so much for looking! Have a wonderful day!


  1. Oh wow...this is just amazing...absolutely amazing! I am sure you have made your dad very, very proud (and your mom too, of course!) What an inspirational story!

    My grandmother was apparently an amazing seamstress in her day, but my mom unfortunately picked up none of the ambition or talent for it, and since my grandmother has passed on, I am now struggling by myself with my clunky old sewing machine to learn to make the simplest things (I can, however, now boast that I've sewn two pairs of pajama pants for my husband, and they both fit! YAY!) But I hope to move on to more important endeavors, and to one day be able to pass my knowledge down to my own daughter and have a legacy to leave her.

    You should be very proud of this absolutely GORGEOUS custom crib set you have created! I am sure there moms will be lining up to buy them! I wish you the best of luck!

    Blessings, Jenn

    1. Hi Jenn!

      Thank you so much for your kind words. Yes, I truly believe on passing on traditions and knowledge. It's one of those things that live forever and they only bring happy memories!

      Go ahead and do your best with that "clunky old sewing machine" of yours...the littlest thing you do, your daughter will be watching and she will always remember the "old good times" like I do! :)

      Blessings to you too!


  2. This is a nice bedding set. It is amazing. Love it.

  3. I love what you had to say and I love the bedding.. I am looking for something just like this for my baby girl who has been thru so much and owls are what I want for her. do you have any more?

    1. Hi, I am sorry but we only made one and this design has been discontinued. However, we can search for a new girly owl pattern for you and take it from there. Email me your details to onecutenursery at gmail dot com. Thanks for stopping by!
