Custom Nursery Bedding?


Yes indeed... Mainly because the only set I can find is $774 and that's a bit excessive I think!

So I was frustrated and about to give up and register for something I hated when I had a brilliant idea... MIL is a great seamstress, and she's already making a quilt for baby, why not have her make the cribskirt and bumper pads as well?

So I started searching for patterns and you wouldnt believe how many sites I found! So Now I"m itching to buy a crib so we can get started on making the bedding! So now I get my not pink, not baby blue, not green set, It will be Navy and white dots or stripes or some pattern I like (to stimulate baby's brain b/c they can see the contrast) and Yellow

SOOO HAPPY


Anyone else attempting this?

You should post some of the better sites you found. Our crib is irregularly shaped (DH's grandpa made it) and I'm having one heck of a time finding stuff to fit. I've been pretty convinced I'll have to make my own stuff for it, and have been too intimidated to even try looking around. :S

I'm not personally doing this, but my mum did make a quilt and bumper set for my sister years ago when she had her babies. She's also made cot sheets which were used by my SIL for her little girls which I now have and they are still in wonderful condition.

I do have a friend who is having a Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt made for me as a gift, this will be single kids bed size though for when my little boy is older.

It's a great idea!

I haven't been able to find hardly any bedding that I like. Navy with polka dots sounds lovely! xo

I think I will probably go down the same route. I am yet to see a bedding set I actually like, let alone one I am willing to have in my house! LOL

Sounds like a fun project too as I wanted to start sewing again!
