You Designed It! Birth Announcement Subway Art in Lilac Poplin Fabric :: A Customer Cameo

Birth Statistics Pillow in custom lilac poplin fabric
Designed by:
Gabby Koeppel from Illinois

Designed for: her new baby niece Izabelle

Inspiration: Plum butterfly nursery set that formed the central element of baby Izabelle's room.

Design Details: Gabby asked for a special fabric to compliment the nursery's purple color palette. We went with a pale lilac poplin fabric she had seen used in a special order pillow she found in the Customer Gallery. The poplin was a little tricker to work with but with a little TLC, it takes the embroidery very nicely. 

Gabby's niece was having her nursery decked out in this adorable plum Butterfly set.

The final touch was to choose threads for the embroidered birth statistics that would make the design Pop off the light lilac fabric. Gabby went with Lilac, Tulip and Iris threads which pulled in those vibrant purples from the nursery.

Lavender, Tulip and Violet threads really compliment this baby nursery's core palette.

 I know Gabby's really happy with her special crafted, super-thoughtful gift. She put a lot of thought into choosing every aspect from design to thread to fabric.
