I visited my favourite online fabric store, Emma's Fabric Studio and found Riley Blake's alphabet soup and knew this was the one we would use. We love the colours, so I bought the "Finn" fat quarter bundle along with a few metres of the Alphabet Soup (boy) fabric for a blackout blind which my friend is kindly making for us (still to come).
We don't really have a theme as such, there are some giraffes, elephants, the cutest cuddly hippo you have seen and some of sewing by me.

So what do you think? We still need to buy a cotbed sheet (now bought - see picture below), we have our eye on a lime green one which will go nicely with the colours. Other than that, I think we are pretty much done. Maybe a colourful rug will be handy for when he is a bit older for playtime.
Anyway, we are really pleased with how it has turned out and we haven't spent a fortune either. Happy Days.
