DIY Crib Bedding Part III: Crib Fitted Sheet

by Kelsey Norwood

in Crafts,Tutorials

This is one project on my Baby To-Do list that I haven’t gotten to yet, so I can’t give you my own tutorial. Basically, I’m waiting to find fabric cheap enough to make it worth my while…or fabric I like enough to pay more for.

My two favorite tutorials come from J Caroline Creative (Dick and Jane crib set) and from Make Baby Stuff (Crib Sheet Pattern).

Both of these websites have tons of great tutorials, so enjoy browsing! I’ll let you know how my own fitted sheet works out…

I went to the JCarolineCreative website. This is too cute. I remember reading Dick and Jane when I was little. Love it!!!

My mom made my kids bedding and I couldn’t have been happier. It’s hard finding the perfect crib bedding…so this way you can make it! Awesome!!

My little guy is sleeping in a smaller crib, I think it’s portable crib size, so I need to find or make a couple of spare fitted sheets. Thanks for the links and help on this!

Thanks for the sites! I really wish I was tallented enough to do this. I will have to forward this to my mother in law along with the material =) thanks!

Fitted sheets are SO expensive?!? Why is that?? I think that buying super cute material, even if it’s NOT on sale, would often be cheaper than buying the sheet. You are inspiring to take up sewing again!

I love this! Thanks for the info, links. It’s hard to find crib sheets that match the quilt I made, so this is a great help!

Both sites you referenced are wonderful–I could spend a lot of time checking out all their tutorials and that Dick and Jane fabric is so cute. Thanks!

Thanks for this site! I realy enjoy it as I’m just a beginner and I’ve only been trying for 40 years to get this sewing hobby right. hahahaha!!!!!! Still do not know all the “special” stuff they say you need to learn = fancy stitches and all, but that’s ok cause practice makes perfect – guess I’d better get back to it now. Thanks again!
