Here's some of what I made for her:
And now for the unveiling:
Here's a quick iPhone picture of all of the goods: the ruffled quilt (pre-binding), both fitted crib sheets, and the changing pad cover. The pillow cover is the only other item not pictured.
The pillow was the last item I made in the lot. I only knew the dimensions of her pillow form (the pillow that is inside the cover in these pictures is entirely too large and completely jammed into the cover!)
The pillow is reversible. It is quilted using scraps of fabric on one side, and a simple envelope enclosure with ribbon closures on the other:
I made two fitted crib sheets (sorry for all the other "stuff" pictured):
I used pink polka dot fabric & the other sheet is pink medallions (also used in the quilt & the quilt backing.) I was certain to use extra elastic, so it was easy to put the sheets on, but tight enough to stay on the mattress. Changing crib sheets is hard enough, it stinks to have to fight with elastic that is too small!
Sheets are extremely easy to make. I used Prudent Baby's Fitted Crib Sheet Tutorial.
I made a simple changing pad cover using pink fleece & damask. Again, I used prudent baby's tutorial. I also added a few rosette flowers, they are just pinned on and can be removed for inevitable washing.
And the final item, which is my new favorite quilt, is the ruffle quilt:
Simple as can be, the ruffle quilt is only 5 ruffles the length of the quilt. The ruffles are sewn onto solid white fabric, and bound with solid white binding. I would never in a million years have thought to bind a quilt in white, but my mother in law made the suggestion and it completely made sense. I love the way it finishes the quilt. It is seriously the sweetest thing ever! Right?!
