Kristin of The Simple Things tends to have high end tastes, so it was no surprise that the only bedding she loved for her baby girl on-the-way was crazy expensive. “So, what does any good DIY-lovin’ gal do?” Kristin asks. Why, gather up her fabric and make one herself of course! Kristin honestly makes it look as easy as pie… all the way from the pretty pink trim to the “peek-a-book” grey that I adore!
