Do you have kids in a crib or a toddler bed? Yes? Good. I have a project for you. Crib sheets (as if you didn't guess that from the blog title).
I have a friend who's about to give birth to triplet boys. She made them some darling quilts, but didn't have crib sheets to match, so I decided to learn how to make some. After all, 3 sheets was still cheaper than a Costco box of diapers, and waaaaaaay cuter (yes, I know it's not a word).
You need 2 yards of fabric per sheet, plus 4 feet of elastic. I borrowed my mom's serger to finish off the edges, so I'm sure you can imagine my current state of serger envy.
The bottom line? CRIB SHEETS = UBER EASY.
Rather than write up a tutorial, I'm going to refer you to the one that I used, which I found at everythingyourmamamade.com.
Being a dork, I totally forgot to take pictures. Yep, I'm awesome like that. But I will give you a peek at the fabric I used. It's from Riley Blake's All Star line, and I got it from my mom, who also has a fabric store (our family goal is world domination, obviously), Heart and Home Fabrics. Really cute for little boys. I promise, in real life the middle fabric is bright red, not pink.
Give it a try!
