project: crib bedding
brendan’s cousin and her husband are having their second child (a girl!) and asked me to make the crib bedding. truth be told i am not sure if i am more honored or nervous… but the fabric started coming in today and i am definitely excited! i picked 7 different patterns from kate spain’s (for moda) fandango line. subtle and soft and feminine but with loads of colors. i love them!
i am tasked with a crib bumper, crib skirt, changing pad cover(s), and a large rag quilt.
for the bumper i will use this tutorial but i am not going to make it patchwork; i plan on using 2 main fabrics (one for each side) and then another for the trim and ties.
for the skirt i will use this tutorial but i am not sure if i will pleat the sides or not. thoughts? i am also on the fence on if the fabric for the skirt should be the same as one of the sides of the bumper or of the trim and ties. thoughts on that?
for the changing pad cover i will use this tutorial.
very open to feedback and lessons learned from anyone who has made any of the above!
when all the fabric comes in i will take some pictures and share my thoughts on what fabric to use for what items. i am super excited to try something new!
