For the Nursery
Unlike most fabric collections that are filled with coordinated prints in multiple colorways , is what this story is all about. Michael Miller's concept combines hues that consistently work so well together, they create their own ambience, their own feeling... their own . These fabric color pairings are also currently prominent in other areas of fashion, interior style and pop culture: Citron-Gray, Aqua-Red, Cocoa-Berry, It's a Boy thing, It's a Girl Thing, Lagoon, Orchid-Gray, Retro, Rouge et Noir, Sorbet and Urban Grit. Like good friends who hang together over time, Michael Miller's eleven pals will evolve from one release to another. Their stories will update and build momentum as color trends evolve, but their compatibility will remain. You'll be able to add new fabrics within the same , knowing they'll fit in and work well together.
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?
Having a baby? Or have a friend who is? Or maybe your sister?

These clever storage baskets are not only cute and handy, they're also a secret recycling project. The sides and bottoms of each basket are stiffened with recycled cardboard! But wait ... they have another hidden talent: they collapse and fold flat to store. In the nursery, use them for creams, diapers, wash cloths and other diaper changing accessories. You could fill a whole shelf set with bright and beautiful baskets.
Crocodile tears, runny noses, spit ups and blow outs... there's almost never a time you need a tissue around the nursery. Why not let them pop out through a grommet on the top of our cute and clever tissue box cover? This fun project is one of eight pieces in our new nursery series sponsored by our good friends at Michael Miller Fabrics. We created the collection using their new concept, selecting the for a modern baby boy nursery: happy yet soothing with bright, bold geometric shapes reminiscent of groovy sixties fashion. This project can be finished with less than a yard of fabric and a few of your favorite scraps. We used the leftovers from all our Citron-Gray fabrics to create a pretty patchwork.
I know I say this every time, but I am so excited about this project! The possibilities are endless!
