Stefanie from The Style Safari is back for one last DIY nursery project! Whether you’re a mom or dad-to-be or are simply looking for just the right gift for an upcoming baby shower, Stefanie’s custom blanket tutorial will show you just how easy it is to personalize what’s sure to be baby’s favorite blankie.
Looking for another personal touch to add to your baby’s nursery? The Style Safari is back to share an easy DIY tutorial for handmade linens that are a completely customizable option when choosing from over 650,000 designs in the Spoonflower Marketplace. The best part about Stefanie’s project is that you’ll be able to complete your crib sheet in under and hour which means more time with baby!
Stefanie: I am loving high contrast black and white as I know it’s easier for newborns to see, so I thought I would pick a pattern that would mesmerize her! [Read more…] about How to Sew a Crib Sheet in Under an Hour
A DIY nursery doesn’t always mean you have to break out the sewing machine! Using a hack on Spoonflower’s Fill-a-Yard® feature, Stefanie of The Style Safari is showing just how easy it is to create a custom name garland – no sewing required. The hardest part? Deciding which designs to use from the Spoonflower Marketplace of more than 650,000 designs!
Stefanie: I’m thrilled to share this tutorial as the ‘secret ingredient’ to my baby’s nursery. Since no one but my husband and I know our baby’s name yet, this has been a fun project to keep quiet! I absolutely wanted to decorate my daughter’s nursery with some fun wall art, but I tend to be very picky on art, and for a baby girl nursery, I wanted everything to feel personalized and special. Enter this easy custom name garland tutorial, where you can hang the letters in any way you choose, or opt to display them more like blocks on a shelf for more versatility. This is a great way to use Spoonflower’s Fill-a-Yard® feature, so have fun mixing up some of your favorite prints from the Spoonflower community!

Oh deer! We’re not sure if it’s the recent announcement of our July design challenges with Operation Shower or all of the adorable baby bibs our community has been creating with this video tutorial, but there’s on thing that’s true: we’ve got babies on the brain! This baby fever may also be a result of a trend we’ve spotted in the Marketplace: woodland animals. Let’s take a walk into the woods to see some of our favorite woodland friends that will leave any nursery serene and inviting.
