no matter what project, big or small. no matter when i refilled my bobbin thread, recently or a week ago. i always, always, always run out of bobbin thread on my last seam on a given project. always.
and tonight was no exception. so i refilled it, finished the seam, and completed the crib skirt!
here are 2 photos with each side of the (unfinished) bumper.
i followed the tutorial pretty much to a tee. the only thing i didn’t do was serge my edges. i just did the double fold over. the pleats were tricky but once i did one, the others were a snap.
here are some photos of the skirt as i was completing it. let me know if you have any questions!
*** UPDATE ***
after putting this on one of my cribs as best i could i realized that the tutorial is off on the size it has you cut the deck of the skirt. it says to cut a piece of fabric 28″ by 51″. issue is that you want your finished product to be 28″ by 52″. i recommend cutting the deck piece of fabric 29″ by 53″ (assuming you are using a 1/2″ seam allowance). i was able to make mine larger by cutting it in half and adding in 1″ of deck fabric material and then re-doing the pleats on the long sections. i didn’t do the short sides since i was just a 1/2″ shy. let’s just say i am very happy i did the initial version with pleats!
