Ever since I saw this post on Made (my favorite craft blog) I have been dying to make D new sheets. Cute crib/toddler sheets are impossible to find and I don't think you can find top sheets for them.
The other day JoAnn's was having a big sale so I bought 4 yards of this cute pink polka dot. Last night I didn't feel completely terrible so after D went to bed I whipped her up some sheets. They probably only took an hour a sheet (most of the time spent ironing). I had the TV on while I was doing it, and had to take a cold cereal break, so I'm sure if I was 100% focused on it I could have been faster.
Made has a tutorial for the fitted sheet and I winged the top sheet. Collin HATES top sheets but I LOVE them, so I wanted to make sure D got exposed to them at a young age so she can also fall in love with them :).
I'm tempted to make another set now, and I know as soon as we find out the gender of this baby I will be making a few crib sheets for him/her.
UPDATE: I've been asked by a lot of people How I did my flat sheet. I literally just winged it.
I took 2 yards of fabric ironed it nice and flat.
For the bottom of the sheet fold over 1/4 inch and iron then fold it again 3/4 inch then top stitched it. Make sure you catch the 1/4 inch that you folded over so you don't risk frays popping out.
Because I used the full 2 yards both sides of the sheet were selvage so I just folded them over a 1/2 inch and top stitched.
