Baby Bedding!

I really want a nursery with a dancing hippo theme! I have one problem, I can't find anything with hippos on it, let alone dancing hippos. I know I can always make a quilt, but I'd really like to find a 6 piece set with PINK or PURPLE hippos on it. I can always find blue hippos, but I don't think Molly will like that! .... So does anyone have any idea where to find anything for a nursery with hippos on it?

  • Have you tried to Google it? Or maybe search Ebay?

    Its possible that you could have some things custom-made, and that's probably your best bet, but its gonna cost some $$.

  • I was not able to find one online. I think with something so specific you will have to make it one your own. GL!

  • You'll have to find the fabric you want and have it custom made. I'm sure there's some little granny out there somewhere that could make a custom bedding set for you if you found the fabric. Find the materials and advertise on Craigslist for a seamstress.

  • Thanks ladies, I'll probably just have my grandmother make the quilt. That way it'll be really special! If anyone ever sees hippo sheets let me know!!

  • Honestly, baby bedding is a bit of a waste. I went all out and ended up keeping it in the box. Bumpers, blankets, and almost everything but the sheet is a no no... Focus on things like curtains and lamps for decorations and try to get plain colored sheets that will match many things. As far as the hippos, you could try ebay, or like you said sew them yourself. Its super easy to make curtains. Good luck :).
