Thumbs up Cowgirl Baby Bassinet get-up and more! (PIC HEAVY)

So, one of my really good friends is pregnant with her first baby and it's a GIRL! (She's actually due in about 13 days!) She was kind of freaking out because she didn't have a bassinet yet and she lives in a remote area... she was looking for something "not plastic"... and I was able to find her the Pottery Barn wicker bassinet on Craigslist for $40!

It came with a cute gender neutral skirt, bumper, and fitted sheet... but I took things to the next level. I decided to make all of her gifts with a cowgirl theme since her and her husband LOVE horses, and their entire house is western style.

First, I made her a bumper out of Riley Blake Fabric, "Saddle Up" collection, with the fitted sheet and the back of the bumper out of Riley Blake Fabrics "Wanna Be a Cowboy 2" fabric collection.

The whole setup (specifics below):






Here is the fitted sheet and the bumper:




The two on the left of this photo are two more fitted sheets:





Then, I decided to make her a matching quilt for the bassinet...




Then, a few matching burp cloths...




Then, a matching rag quilt (the back is brown minky dot)...







Then, I used scraps for the door latch savers...






And of course, what cowgirl wouldn't be set without her own cowboy hat photo prop?!





I also found a stick horse at Goodwill and re-finished it for her! Here is how it looked before.... (check out the old shag hair!)



And After! I named him "Little Little Joe", after her horse Little Joe. He has wool "hair", that was dyed with raspberries and tea!:




We also had a baby shower where we lined the walkway with old boots with flowers in it (I don't have a photo of that), BUT, with all of the boots left over, I made two lamps for the new cowgirl's room! (I got these boots FFS from someone on DS for the walkway for the shower-- thank you so much, and look how they were re-purposed... TWICE! They will continue to be loved!)





The base of the lamps is old barn board that I've held on to for a while, sanded down ever so slightly to show the saw mill marks and just to get a little of the barn greying off of it... you can still see some.

What a sweet gift! It's all so nice and unique, I love the "rehaired" horsey and that rag quilt looks beyond cuddly! This little cowgirl is going to have a wonderful set-up!
