Emory's Baseball Nursery

  A few weeks ago, my family and I drove to San Angelo, TX to help a good friend of mine set up her nursery. She had hired me to make all custom textiles for the room and I thought it would be fun to personally help her set it all up!
Just a few days ago little Emory decided it was time to come out! So I thought today would be the perfect day to share the nursery with you all!

She wanted a vintage baseball theme for the nursery

My friend had found this cute vintage baseball fabric online and I based the rest of the colors and patterns from there. I went with a navy and red pinstripe and a red and white chevron.

All of these fabrics can be found at

The curtains turned out to be one of my favorite things in the room! I had bought these vintage cream colored pre-made panels and then I sewed a red band and the pinstripe fabric to the bottom to add length, color, and pattern! I really think they resemble the old vintage uniforms baseball players used to wear!

Above the changing table we hung 2 pieces of vintage-style baseball art and then offset them with a cute distressed red shelf. I styled the shelf with an "E" for Emory, a baseball piggy bank, and a photo frame that has a photo of Emory's dad playing baseball when he was little. I love incorporating some of the parent's childhood photos when designing a nursery. It gives it a really personal touch!

Above the crib we hung a vintage baseball mobile and a pennant with Emory's name.

I made these vintage baseball tiebacks for the curtains.

I made this blanket with the left over fabric scraps and backed it with white minky fabric.

The pillow was one of my shower gifts for Emory. I will have these pillows up on my Etsy page soon. You can view my Etsy listing for full custom nursery textiles here!

Isn't it such a cute room?! I am sure Emory is going to love it and I hope I have inspired you with some fun nursery ideas!

  1. Do you know what color the paint is? Love that color and cute room!

    1. Unfortunately I don't know the paint color! The home was painted that color before my clients moved in! It is a great color though. Kind of a darker grey khaki.
