We were so scared that he would hurt himself though, so we graduated him to a big boy bed.
We have the mattress, we bought the bed, and now he just needs a super cute quilt to cuddle with for the rest of his little kid years (and secretly into his teen years, right?)
The Ribbon Retreat has this super cute pattern for a quilt.
It is for a crib sized quilt, but I’ve made a few tweaks to make it fit on a twin sized bed.
Another thing I changed was instead of a bug on the quilt, I am doing a train! Oh it looks so great in my head. I hope it turns out! But the characters on this quilt are so cute. I love their little eyes.
The instructions are fairly easy, so someone who hasn’t sewn much, could definitely do this quilt.
The fabric I ordered is so pretty! (Can I say that about a boy quilt?) And I can’t wait to get my order and get started on this little guys quilt!
