I've made a few crib sheets in my day.
When the crib belonged to Emerson.
(pictures not by me... obviously.)
** sidenote-- eating chocolate and typing at the same time is seriously difficult and messy.
Anyhow. Back in the day I even did a little tutorial. Sewing your own crib sheet can be a cheap (and more stylish) alternative to buying a pre-made crib sheet. So when Sawyer arrived and he was a boy-- Eme's girly floral sheet just wasn't going to cut it. I decided to do something boyish and started hunting for fabrics. I wanted something more small scale so that it would be a contrast to what I did for Emerson. I fell in love with this fabric from Spoonflower.
But alas, at $18 a yard it was going to be a little more $$ than I wanted to spend-- on JUST the fabric. So, I decided to see if there were any pre-made options out there that I liked, because really-- with 3 kids, who has time to sew?? Serena and Lily had some great options and even sent me some free swatches. Love that. They were all great-- but not exactly what I had in mind originally.
But then Dwell Studio had a 30% off baby event. And I found the perfect crib sheet for my little man.
With that said, Sawyer says:
"Welcome to my crib, yo."
It's pretty darn close to my original vision...
And considering that Sawyer slept for a full 10 hour stretch in his crib last night, I'd say he likes it alot.
This post was NOT brought to you by this pajama clad munchkin who's new favourite game is to climb into Sawyer's crib and "help" him wipe his nose.
You can imagine how much the little guy appreciates her efforts.
