My friend cleaned out her storage this summer and gave away all her baby things...then found out she was blessed with baby number 3, SURPRISE.  Thankfully many other friends passed on their things and the new little one has everything he could want/need.  She received this gently used baby swing that was clean, in great shape, but had a teddy bear on it.  Of the few things she did buy herself, she went with a nature theme.  I had bought this bird print flannel on sale the day after Thanksgiving with no clue what to do with it...now the opportunity presented itself to put that fabric to good use.

The original fabric was the same colors as my bird fabric, so I made a slip cover (wash-ability...oh yeah).  I made a large button hole to thread the buckle through and used dark blue trim around the cover to pull everything together.  She was quite pleased with the results (me too, to be honest).



I used green thread and a zig-zag stitch on the binding trim for added interest.


Oh and here's the before...not bad, but not great either.
