I know the time will come when he won't need to eat all night. When that time comes, he will go in his crib. Also, now is the time when he is having regular naps during the day. He gets woken up too much, if those naps happen on the couch, or in our little crib in the family room. So, it is time to get the crib ready for him! At least, ready for his daytime naps!
Now, on to the reason for this blog post. Last week, I made Mr. Kimble a crib set. It was my very first time making a crib set. First time; last baby. Poetic. Anyway, I finished it last night. I totally anticipate Mr. Kimble taking his morning nap in his crib. Joyous!
I followed This Tutorial for making the crib bumper pads. I followed This Tutorial for making the beautiful blanket. I followed This Tutorial for making a crib sheet! Tell me what you think!
The crib blanket was very easy to make. The only adjustment I made, was in adding a decorative strip of material along the edge, before I sewed on the ruffle. I did this on both sides, the front and back, of the blanket.
Who says ruffles are only for girls??
This next picture shows the material I used for the back, the tiny green polkadot. I used the big blue dot fabric as the decorative edge, on both the front and the back of the blanket.
Edited to add: I bought the fabric at Joanns!! It was along the wall of fabric that is always (most always) 30% off.
