I love sewing for my kids and babies. The unfortunate thing is my baby isn't really a baby anymore :( I've also learned that there arent as many things you can sew for a boy as there is for a girl.
I've been looking for set of bright orange sheets for Cams room and could never find any that I loved. That's when it occurred to me that I could sew my own pretty easily. I found THIS tutorial from Dana Made It and made just a few minor adjustments.
If your looking for an easy project that you can do pretty quickly, you love this one!
So here's the deets:
First you'll need
- 2 yards of fabric
- 80 inches of 1/4 elastic
Cut your fabric so it measures 44x67 inches. From here fold your fabric into fourths and cut an 8X8 square out of your fabric.
So when you open it, it looks like this.
Fold and iron the ends under. This is where your elastic will go. I didn't measure or anything, I kind of just guestimated all the way around.
See how cute this is?!?! Here's a peak around Campbell's room. Dave's mom made this canvas. She used Dave's old football media guides to make the background. I love how talented she is!
I did an ABC wall on one side. It was kind of a lot of work but it turned out so cute!
Love this old window!
Here's one more look at the sheets
This is what it looked like 2 seconds after I took the pics.
So now go on and make your own crib sheets!
