Day 357 - May 16, 2012

Mama kept her promise and surprised me with my front crib cover this morning.
 

It's pink.


It's padded.


It's perfect!


Thanks, Mama!  Now you better get started on the sides.

What a great idea! I should make one for Audrey's crib so it doesn't end up looking like Jacobs.. his is completely chewed up. What did you use for padding?

Many tutorials I saw called for a quilted fabric, but it's much more expensive than batting, so I just went with regular batting. It was a lot cheaper and just as effective. I ended up spending less than $20 on supplies (fabric, batting, & thread) for all three crib rails. I way overestimated how much I would need. I probably only used $2-3 worth of materials for the front rail. An inexpensive project that will save our crib for babies to come.

Here is the tutorial I followed: http://www.lifeonthepeanuttrail.com/448/diy-crib-rail-protector/
