Finished Crib Bedding

A huge weight was lifted from my shoulders on Monday as I delivered my friend's crib bedding that I posted about here and here. As promised, here are pics of the finished project. I absolutely love the colors she chose and think it went together beautifully. However, the bumper turned out to be slightly bigger than hoped and not quite rigid enough even though I used two layers of the loftiest batting I could find. Anyway, without further ado, here it is:

I'm so proud of how nicely the corners lined up on the skirt!

Another part I'm really proud of - I pleated the center of the skirt to mask the seam where I pieced the fabric together. You can hardly see the seam in the first place, but the pleat makes it even more discreet.

I think my first attempt at piping turned out really nice. Now that know how to do it, I'm dreaming of other projects to add piping to.

Here it is on my sons crib. This picture does it no justice.

Overall, this was a really fun project albeit extremely time consuming. And while I definitely learned a lot, I don't ever wish to make 28 individual ties. ever. again.

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

Hi Rhyah! Love the bedding you made! I just finished making my first set too: http://www.flickr.com/photos/36028610@N02/3969506464/

I cannot recommend anything more than these bumper pads from Joanns: http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp?CATID=cat3406&PRODID=xprd636341

Combine this with a 40% off coupon and you've got the best $10 you've ever spent!!

Everything looks great, but I'm afraid I agree with you, next time I will use ribbon to tie the bumper, those ties take FOREVER to make!!

Sarah, thank you so much for the comment! Your crib bedding turned out amazing!

I SO wish I knew about the bumper pads! I looked and looked for something like that, but my store didn't have them, and everything else online was so expensive!

Oh well, my friend was just as happy with it the way it was. She is going to weave the bumper in a few spots to help it stand up and compensate for the extra material.
