Michael Miller Fabrics' Citron-Gray Nursery: Fabric Storage Basket

Wednesday, 17 August 2011 9:00

Click to Enlarge

No nursery series would be complete without some type of storage solution tutorial. I remember back when I had my first baby; it was a shock to realize how much stuff this one tiny person needed. A nursery is often filled to the brim with little things that have to be organized: creams, diapers, diaper wraps, wash cloths, toys, pacifiers, and more! Our Storage Shelf Basket tutorial is fast, easy and fun to make. So much so, you can make lots. Line the shelves with color-coordinated sets so there's a place for everything (we cannot guarantee 'everything in its place'!). With the side handle facing out, it's easy to grab a basket and find exactly what you want. This terrifically-tidy project is just one of eight pieces in our new nursery series sponsored by our good friends at Michael Miller Fabrics. We created the entire Series using their Color Story concept. Our choice: the Citron-Gray Color Story with its cool colors and bold designs.

Michael Miller Fabrics' Citron-Gray Nursery: Patchwork Baby Quilt with Monogram

The gateway drug of quilting is the baby quilt tutorial. Once you try one of these easy, itty-bitty marvels, you'll be hooked, and small pieces of fabric will begin stacking up all over your house. This handsome quilt is just one of eight tutorials in our modern, baby boy nursery series, sponsored by our good friends at Michael Miller Fabrics and created using their new Color Story concept. Designer Alicia Thommas picked out the best and the brightest of the bold geometrics in our chosen Citron-Gray Color Story. With names like, Feeling Groovy, Play Stripe and Disco Dot... you know it's going to be a fun tutorial. We added a custom monogram to the bottom right corner square, which personalizes the project and will make it a cherished keepsake. However, first it has to be dragged around the house for a few years, cried into, and cuddled with; only then can it be a real keepsake.

Our pretty piped pillow tutorial offers free downloadable patterns for a friendly elephant and a graceful giraffe. If you are clever with paper and pen, you can draw additional shapes and expand your zoo. For easiest appliquéing, keep curves large and smooth and avoid tiny points. These animal appliqué pillows are just one of eight projects in our new nursery series sponsored by our good friends at Michael Miller Fabrics, and are created using their new Color Story concept. We love the Citron and Gray 'Huevos' fabric we chose for the pillow backs and the elephant appliqué. Repeating circles that are chubby and sweet, like little soap bubbles.

One of the top tutorials here on Sew4Home has alway been our crib bumpers. It seems there are a lot of people our there looking for bumper patterns and instructions, and ours just happen to be the easiest... and the cutest. We started with our original winning design, then up-cycled it with all-around, jumbo piping and added a stylish monogram. This back-by-demand tutorial is just one of eight pieces in our new nursery series sponsored by our good friends at Michael Miller Fabrics, and is created using their new Color Story concept. We chose the Citron-Gray Color Story for its warmth and it design 'wow' – beautiful and bold geometrics that are endlessly interesting. Think gray doesn't belong in nursery? Give it another look; it is one of the loveliest neutrals available. In fact, Feng Shui experts say, "Warm, silvery gray can bring a beautiful, clear and centering energy into a room."

Michael Miller Fabrics' Citron-Gray Nursery: Pleated Crib Skirt

A crib skirt has two main functions: 1) it looks cute as can be, and 2) when it hangs all the way to the floor, it creates a secret, under-bed storage space. For our sleek and modern baby boy nursery, we choose a crisp pleated skirt rather than ruffles. This helps with arguments down the road, such as when my son claims deep emotional scars from wearing his older sister's ruffled overalls (it was one small ruffle on the pocket and he was two... come on!). This crib skirt tutorial is just one of eight pieces in our new nursery series sponsored by our good friends at Michael Miller Fabrics, and is created using their new Color Story concept.

You can never have too many baby bed linens. Changing the crib several times in one day is not unheard of... let's just say babies are kind of "leaky." This super simple crib sheet takes just a couple yards of fabric, a length of elastic and about an hour of your time. Why settle for boring old white sheets when it's so easy to add color and design? Today's project is just one of eight pieces in our new nursery series sponsored by our good friends at Michael Miller Fabrics, and is created using their new Color Story concept. Unlike most fabric collections that are filled with coordinated prints in multiple colorways, color is what this story is all about, like our selection: Citron-Gray. This baby nursery has a sleek, modern style yet is still wrap-your-arms-around-it warm and cozy.

We created the collection using their new Color Story concept, selecting the Citron-Gray Color Story for a modern baby boy nursery: happy yet soothing with bright, bold geometric shapes reminiscent of groovy sixties fashion.

Because, let's face it, who's really lookin' at all those pretty pieces at 2:00 in the morning! We will showcase eight projects over the next several weeks, starting with today's full-length panel curtains, which feature our favorite plastic grommets for easy hanging.
