New Nursery Decor for a Special Little Boy…..


A beautiful new nursery decor for a special little boy…

Chrissie chose new beautiful ranges of fabric before Master P was born – this stunning Backyard Baby Range from Michael Miller and the pink Wee Wanderer also from Michael Miller. We didn’t know what gender their new addition was going to be – so creating could not start before Master P arrived.

The order was :  fitted sheet, flat sheet, bunting and 2 cushion covers.

So the week master P arrived I ordered this gorgeous fabric range, and when it arrived – it is even more gorgeous in person <3.  The fabric has a beautiful soft feel to it.



The first cushion cover is square, and just lent itself to some fussy cutting beside the polka dots.  Chrissie had sent me a text during the week, and used Paddy instead of Patrick – so I decided to machine embroider this gorgeous “pet” name to the cushion.  ON the second cushion I found this teal ribbon with polka dots at Spotlight while going through fabric – and thought it would be a perfect match and it was !!.

The fitted sheet and flat sheet were made from the polka dots – giving the nursery decor lots of colour for a sweet little boy.



The bunting has 15 flags and is double sided.  I used an Ash Blue for Patrick’s name and machine applique’d the name to the front flag !  It looks so good in his room all together.

With the spare fabric – I created a cot sized pillowcase for when he is older.

I feel very honoured to have been entrusted with this creation.  Bringing a newborn baby home to their new nursery that you have spent HOURS contemplating and designing  is such a special time for all parents…

Enjoy <3 <3

This is just one example of how Sewn by Leanne creates Nursery Decor to suit your needs.

Have a great day.

The Quilt Design is based on the Traditional “Bird in the Air” block.  I have Quilted in Swirls to soften all the pointy triangles !  And of Course it will be bound  with Stripes !! (My Favourite).



To match this Quilt, I have made a stunning Heart Cushion (20″ square).  The front of the Cushion has been Pieced and Quilted using gorgeous Aurifil thread (white, yellow, grey, teal and pink!).  The bunting will make make a lovely accent on a nursery wall in the same fabric, using 9 flags !
