Bumper pad, crib skirt, nusery organizer, and two pillows for my sister’s baby girl due next week (!)
I used Simplicity pattern 3795. Overall, I really liked the pattern.
-I omitted the flowers because they just seemed so busy.
-The tabs on the bumper are too long. I guess the flowers would have covered this? But why so long? My sister’s crib has pretty wide slats, and even then these are too long.
-I didn’t read the instructions on the pillow, so it’s not near as cute as it should be.
-The crib skirt pattern was pretty stupid. That bottom fabric? It requires more than twice what you see, only to have it taken back up and sewn to the back. No hem? Point of that other than to waste really cute, discontinued, I-bought-all-they-had-only-to-have-most-of-it-not-even-show? Stupid. I’m slightly bitter.
And I made an extra little throw pillow with the fabric swatches she gave me from the quilt I was matching. I need to get a picture of it all in Josie’s (my soon-to-be-born neice) room, along with the amazing quilt her friend made. Until then, these will have to do…
