DIY No-Sew Crib Bumpers

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.
