Crib Bedding Sewing Pattern


I could have sworn that I saw somewhere a wonderful free pattern for sewing crib bedding... but of course now that I want it I can't find it.

I did find a few good patterns for purchase, if anyone is interested... the first is a Kwik Sew pattern that seems to have everything you would need for the crib (I've never used a Kwik Sew pattern, but just the name makes me like it 'cause it sounds so easy and... well... quick!).  I also really like that the Kwik Sew pattern (pictured above) has the pocket thing on the end of the crib.  Simplicity has several crib patterns to choose from on their website.

If anybody has seen a good free crib bedding pattern anywhere on the interwebs, please let me know! I may be going crazy but I'm sure I saw one once.

I'm considering sewing a few crib things for this baby (if I ever get my energy back, that is). Hancock's has some really cute fabrics that I would love to use!

Update August 12, 2010: I get a lot of searches leading to this page, so I thought I'd update it to make it a bit more helpful.  I'd like to draw your attention to two great links that have been left in the comments section:

The first is the Nursery Bedding section of MakeBabyStuff.com.  There are free patterns for a fitted crib sheet, three quilts, and a fleece blanket.  Please, please, PLEASE check out the Nursery Decor section too... they have some seriously adorable stuff!

Allcrafts.net's baby section also has a gobload (ummm... okay so gob and load both mean "a lot" so when I put them together, just know that there are a WHOLE LOT) of free patterns for not only bedding, but also knitting and crochet patterns, scrapbooking resources, needlework projects, and general craft tutorials.  Great resource!

If anybody else knows of any good resources for sewing baby bedding or nursery decor, please let me know!

Update September 21, 2010: Andrea at The Train to Crazy just posted a tutorial for making a simple fitted crib sheet for an odd sized crib mattress- perfect for portable or mini cribs!  You can find it here.

'Nother Update October 7, 2010: I just discovered www.prudentbaby.com, and she has tons of great tutorials for making adorable baby and kid stuff.  Of particular interest to this post are her Crib Sheet, Changing Pad Cover, and Fitted Sheet for Pack 'n Play tutorials.  You really have to go browse this website... you'll find enough inspiration for months of sewing!

  6. i might not have assumed this was cool quite a few years ago but yet it is crazy just how years switches the manner of how you respond to abnormal creative concepts, many thanks with regard to the posting it is actually pleasurable to go through anything smart now and then in lieu of the general nonsense mascarading as information sites on the net, i'm going to enjoy a couple of hands of facebook poker, cheers

  7. In March 2010, researchers at Columbia University noted that they produced a tissue-designed jaw bone using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived from bone marrow. MSCs by nature, give rise to connective tissue such as bone and cartilage, making bone regeneration one of the most analyzed remedial areas for MSCs today.
