The three fabrics used in combination to make the crib bedding and the matching fabric wall decorations are:

2. Premier Prints Traditions White/Navy Blue Fabric (Damask pattern fabric)

3. Premier Prints Zig Zag Chartreuse/White Fabric (chevron pattern fabric)

Ruffled baby crib skirt with layers and layers of ruffles made from a variety of custom fabrics

They may not be easier than using peel and stick nursery wall decals but did you read the part where I mentioned "left over" and "already on hand"? Yes, dear visitors, there's a little work involved but they are so easy to make, cheap PLUS your nursery has that custom look that all new mothers want and just like decals; they won't damage the wall's paint. Renters, rejoice!

And the fabric wall decals are much easier than painting polka dots on the wall especially since the mom that made the fabric circles that you see in the above pictures has a tutorial on her Positively Splendid blog sharing step-by-step instructions with us including patterns and tutorials for the crib skirt.

The ruffled crib skirt is so amazing that it deserved its own closeup and Amy made it herself! It has 16 sections of ruffles! She has instructions for how to make the crib skirt on her blog but she says that before you jump in that you should be ready to spend some time on it. The tutorial includes instructions for standard sewing machines and sergers.

And if all that weren't enough; I saved (in my opinion) the very, very best for last.

The pennant window valance really puts the finishing touch on the room, doesn't it? Of COURSE it does! Here's a closeup pic of it so you can see all of the details and how beautifully the fabrics complement each other!

I'm really excited about the pennant tutorial because that's a project that a beginner, (read: sewing dummy) such as myself might actually be able to complete successfully!

All in all, this baby boy's nursery IS Positively Splendid as is everything his talented mom creates.

Hold on! We haven't seen all that there is to see of the Amy's baby nursery ideas.

Amy emailed today and said we can run a feature on the entire room possibly as early as next week! I can't wait to see more of her baby boy's nursery ideas and to get more details on that sweet black and white damask print and chevron stripe baby bedding set that she made for her son, George so bookmark us, come back soon and don't forget to vote for this room to win this year's baby picture contest.

Lesley, I have looked all over for something similar (that wasn't so expensive) with no luck. I just bought my fabric for the crib skirt and am ready to give it my best shot. Wish me luck!

Everything is adorable! I think my sewing skills are adequate to handle the flag banner and I'm going to give it a shot!
