Piping and Crib Bedding

I promised a friend of mine a while back that I would make crib bedding for her new baby boy. Well, her baby boy is now 5 months old, so I've put off all other sewing until this bedding is finished. Thankfully, my friend is super patient and co-sleeps with her son and insists that she isn't in a hurry.

Anyway, I thought I would share my latest progress with you since I'm so proud of the handmade, matching piping that I just finished. I've been a little intimidated by the piping, which is likely what held me back so long. Well, that and the fact that I have my own little bundle to keep me busy.

I found a great tutorial for making your own piping and found it to be super straightforward and easy to understand. Now that I've done it, I may be adding piping to all kinds of things!

Isn't it pretty? It reminds me of that green, red and white Christmas candy. You know which stuff I'm talking about!

The piping will be sandwiched between the damask and corduroy for the bumper, and the skirt will be made with the ticking stripe with a band of dark brown on the bottom. I can't wait to finish it to see everything put together! It should go together pretty quickly now since everything is cut and ready to go!

P.S. If you like what you see here, I'd love it if you'd share!

Oh I love piping! I don't like the time it takes to cut the bias, but the finished product is always worth it!

Thanks so much for sharing the tutorial on binding. I remembered reading it when you posted and now that I am about to make new pillows I am using it to make my binding.
