Check out my Crib (bedding that is)

I LOVE babies and everything about them!  One of the most exciting things when you are expecting is getting to decorate the nursery in anticipation of the little one’s arrival.  So when my college roomie contacted me and asked if I would help her out by making her some crib bedding I was over the moon excited!

She originally found this bedding on Etsy, but the price was a bit out of the budget (which I completely understand).  Using the pictures as reference and a few tutorials (dust ruffle and bumpers)  I pinned on Pinterest, I was able to come up with a plan for sewing the bedding.

The dust ruffle was fairly simple and quick to create.

The bumpers took a bit longer but I got to work on my zipper installing skills and make LOTS (28 to be exact) of oversized ties for securing the bumpers to the crib.

To achieve the puffy look for the bumpers I made bumper inserts using muslin and silky soft poly-fill.  I am so happy with how they turned out.  If I am ever blessed to have another little one myself I will definitely be making their bedding myself!  It was so much fun!  The hard part will be deciding on what fabric to use.  So many options!

I can’t wait to find out how the client likes them (I sure hope she likes them!).


  1. I haven’t even seen it in person, and I love it! You are the best.

    • I am so glad you are happy with it! You will have to share pictures once you get it all set up in your sweet little one’s crib!
