Last Christmas Lila got a set of very pink doll accessories. Some of it went the way of the Goodwill, but the bouncer had good play value and has been well used all year. I always meant to recover it with something less…pink, but as we all know, there are only so many hours in the day. Anyway, when I finally dismantled the cover, the empty frame caused all sorts of tears, so I had to work quickly and get it put back together.
Here’s the before:
I’ll admit there are far more offensive prints out there, but I knew we could do better.
Elephants = better.
I wasn’t ambitious enough to do anything about the hot pink plastic part of the frame, so I chose fabric, bias tape, and webbing that worked with the pink. The elephants are a Japanese print by Daiwabo – it’s the orange version of the fabric from Lila’s elephant pants.
Such an easy fix. Lila doesn’t care either way, but it sure does make me happy.
There’s even room for two in there:
I’m glad she still plays with her babies sometimes, even if she is almost four…
