I have a few important facts to share regarding the crib bedding for my kids.
1) I LOVE the crib bedding from Carousel Designs.
2) I can't afford, nor justify spending hundreds of dollars on crib bedding.
3) I can make my own for a fraction of the cost.
4) But I don't sew!
If you recall, I fell in love with the navy chevron crib bedding from Carousel Designs for my twins, but refused to pay close to $500 for two sets. And so I attempted no-sew bumpers and crib skirts, and to my surprise they worked! My boys were in cribs till 22 months of age, and the no-sew crib bedding held up just fine.
I made Charlotte's bumper exactly like I made the boys' bumpers. I'm not going to rewrite the tutorial, but you can find it here. Please check it out for a detailed description of no-sew crib bumpers, as well as why I chose to use bumpers when they are somewhat controversial these days.
The only thing different for my girl bumper is where I bought fabric and supplies. I bought everything from Hobby Lobby this time.
Overall, I'm happy with the outcome of my DIY crib bedding for both of my boys and now for our little girl.
