I think my favorite would have to be Snoopy Woodstock.

My favorite nursery theme is Disney babies! Works for boys or girls.

The padded crib rail cover is a great idea - both for the baby and for the parent that has to lean over it. I love the idea of DIY decor for a nursery, too. It's so much more meaningful than buying everything from the store!

I would love the Simply Red Bernina machine. My favorite nursery rhyme is Wee Willie Winkie

Both of my nephews have a jungle/animal theme in their nurseries. Although I love the cloud garland from Blissfully Blessed. Might have to incorporate it somehow!

Oh my gosh, that crib canopy is ADORABLE!

I love these project ideas! It's so important to personalize your nursery.
