i made my little precious munchin-to-be crib bumpers. in part to save money, but also because i couldn’t find any that fit my nursery “vision”. continuing the loose nautical theme, one side is blue striped seersucker, and the other orange striped seersucker (i am a sucker for seersucker). i think the narrow stripes are a great complement to the navy and white striped crib skirt i made.
i don’t have a tutorial for these – i simply followed the directions that came with the bumper pads (bought with a 50% off coupon). they were pretty simple, but very time consuming. if i were to ever make them again, i would change a couple things: 1. put the bumper pads in the crib before starting to make sure they are the correct fit (they are a bit long for my crib, causing some overlapping, bending and gaping which is driving. me. crazy.) 2. figure out a solution for the ties other than making my own – making 24 ties was the devil (ribbon?) 3. add piping along the top edges (which was my original plan but abandoned the idea after i cut the fabric to cover the piping too narrow and didn’t have any more patience)
full nursery reveal to come! (…someday)
(before anyone gets judgey (bitch please), i am aware bumpers pose a sids risk. these will only be used when henry is older and over the risk of sids.)
