A darling vintage image from my Rock A Bye Baby Rand McNally Junior Elf book. Peter pan collar on mom. Little blue and white ball knobs on the cradle. Seemingly perfect in every way. Right down to the nail polish on mom's nails.
This sweet jumper was found at an estate sale some time ago and I have been waiting to re purpose it. I didn't find a label inside. It appears to be hand made. The fabric reads Fuzzy Wuzzy with darling bears in pink bows surrounded by buzzing bees.
Because of the small amount of fabric I had to get creative. Which means add more vintage fabric.
I couldn't resist adding the tiny baby gingham trim.
It hurt me to hack off the bib portion...until I realized it could work on the pillow too!
Still thinking about adding some stitching to that pink block with the bear applique to say fuzzy wuzzy? Over all it is just really sweet.
On the back I added a strap from the jumper and the bib and buttons for the closure.
I am happy to be able to see that sweet print on a pillow rather than hanging on a hanger or folded in a drawer. Another darling nursery treasure to join the growing collection.
