I see I'm jumping on this way late. I hope you've found your niche in B-ham. I currently live in Tuscaloosa, but I am from Birmingham, and I can tell you there is a very creative and crafty scene there. If you haven't yet, you should check out Bottletree Cafe. It's a great restaurant, bar, venue for bands and different things. They also hold a few craft bazaars throughout the year, and I think they do a craft/vintage/yardsale swap thing once a month. I think your robots would go over great there! www.thebottletree.com

I'll probably be totally stealing some of your ideas.  I have this fabric for OUR bedding, and the yellow sparrows for the baby bedding!!  I'm making a quilt out of it, and using the striped fabric that coordinates for the dust ruffle!   

Congrats on your upcoming baby!!! I'm not due until May.

Thanks! I really do love the birds...I couldn't decide on a theme or anything that I really liked until I found that fabric.  I almost went for the yellow sparrows instead of these, but decided this popped more with the orange walls.  I really wanted to use his green wood grain fabric for all of the green, but I couldn't justify spending quite that much on all of the fabric.  I am pretty happy with how it all looks!

I am still planning on making the mobile and some wall artwork.  Also, we have to find a cheap side table and bookcase for the room, so I am sure there is more crafting to come. 

Congratulations to you, too!  Please let me know when you finish your bedding and stuff so that I can see!!!!

That's really cute, and I definitely would have thought it took you longer than one night to do!  Great job!

I wasn't sure if this should be posted here or in the sewing section or what.  I just figured this was as good a place as any!

I am expecting my little girl in February, 2009.  I'm so excited to welcome her, and I've been having fun with crafting while pregnant (because there really isn't much else that a pregnant girl can do).  It really started when my husband and I were looking at bedding.  In case you are not aware, baby bedding is very expensive and most of it only comes in pastel blues, pinks, yellows (especially for girls).  I hated almost everything I saw, and I couldn't imagine paying $200 or more for something so hideous (IMHO).  So, I decided to pick out some fabric and sew my own.  I'm thrilled with how it turned out!!!!!

Without further ado:


Please excuse all of my knitting and crafting mess all over the floor around the crib and in the closet.  I am still working on finding a new home (this used to be my office and craft room...)


close up of the baby bedding.  You can see the green a little better here.


This is the inside of the bumper.  The bird fabric is by Joel Dewberry, and I am in love with his designs now.  I wish I could afford tons of his fabric!


This is the diaper Organizer.  I love the tiny pocket, although I have no idea what useful thing could possibly fit in there.


This is the pocket Organizer.  It looks fine, although there are tons of little mistakes that I wish weren't there.  I used a vogue pattern which was nearly impossible to understand, and this was the piece that suffered the most.  Hopefully you can't really tell.


My husband and I also painted this old dresser to become August Isabella's changing table.  I'm super excited about how it turned out (it used to be an ugly dark color).


The right side of the changing table has a pretty little swallow that I taped off.


And a Peace Dove on the Left...

So, we are still working on little things all through the room, but I think that we have a very good start (especially since we still have 3 months before she gets here).  Thanks so much for looking!

Your apartment is great, and I love the table with the fleur de lis!  My husband and I used to live in Old Louisville, and I LOVED our apartment!  (I also loved that we lived a block from Mag Bar, which was our favorite bar in the area). 

Now we live in Mississippi.  We see fleur de lis everywhere because of the Saints.  We aren't big sports people, so it always just means Louisville to us.  Smiley

I am having a baby in a little less than 6 months, and it is my first.  I won't know if it's a boy or a girl for 5 more weeks.  I am wanting to do a bright colored nursery (I am not a pastel kind of girl), with some sort of shel silverstein theme.  I love his books!  His books are definitely not the most colorful out there, though.  It could be quite a challenge.

The walls are already a yellowish-orange color with white trim.  I'm not planning on painting any murals, because I'm not a great painter.  Anyway, I'm looking for ideas that any of you might have of crafty things that I could do to make the room perfect.  Any ideas are welcome.  I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed and lost.

I realize this is a bit late.  Smiley  I live in Jackson, too, and I had no idea about the volcano.  That's pretty rad!

Hi, Contrivant.  I'm in Northeast Jackson.  It's nice to know that there are a few craftsters in the area.

I realize you posted this over a month ago, but I wanted to say that it is such a great idea!  It looks so good!  (I am going through a bit of a mummy stage this halloween)
