I have shown you my 4-year olds bed and everything to go with it, so lets move over to the other side of the room and visit my baby’s side! Well, I guess he isn’t a baby anymore – more of an eighteen month toddler – but I call him my baby! I have had his crib bedding sewn for a while, I am just getting around to sharing it! Today I am sharing a simple crib skirt tutorial.
Cut a piece of muslin or just plain white fabric 1″ larger than your crib platform. A standard crib size is 28 1/2″ x 53″, so you will need to cut a piece 29 1/2″ x 54″.
I wanted my crib skirt to be 13” long – including the trim, so I cut my main piece at 10” and my trim at 4” so I could allow for a 1/2” seam allowance.
Next, I sewed the side pieces together so they were each 55” long. I cut the end pieces to be 30 1/2″ long.
After all four sides were cut, I sewed them together along with the trim and hemmed the sides with a 1/2” seam allowance.
Then, I sewed them to the white fabric/muslin. I started with the ends and just sewed from corner to corner.
The side pieces should fit perfectly between the two ends. Sew them on from side to side. You don’t want to sew the side pieces to end pieces. You want them open so the hang right when you put it on the crib.
For some reason I cannot find the picture of all four sides done – but unlike the simple bed skirt I sewed, this crib skirt does have all four sides.
After you sew all four sides – you are done!!!
Have a great Monday!
