How do you make a crib bumper pad?

Answer

This is a fairly simple project even for a beginning sewer. You will need about 2 yds of material, I always plan for a little extra just in case I mess up. You will also need cotton batting, ribbon to match your material, tape, copy or printer paper, straight pins, a measuring tape and scissors. First you will have to make your pattern which is easy. You first need to measure your crib or bassinet. You will need to make your pattern 1/2' longer on either side. You next need to measure how deep you want your bumpers. The usual width is the size of your paper 8 1/2'. Next you will take your paper and tape it end to end till you get the length you want. Then mark you pattern where you want the ribbons to be. Lay your fabric folded in half down on a flat table along with the batting and your pattern and pin into place. Cut two halves for the sides and also for the ends and then pin them back together. Cut your ribbon in 2 pairs at a time in approximately 10' pieces. You should now have 12 pairs. Place the ribbons inside the fabric where you want them to be. Sew your pieces together and you're done. For more information look here: Tips on making a crib bumper. www.make-your-own-baby-stuff.com;
