How to Make a Baby Crib Bumper
Materials:2 3/8 yd. of desired fabric (with or without nap) 45” wide1 5/8 yd. high loft batting (padding) 45” wide3 packages of ½” wide double fold bias tape (OR 7 yards of 1 to 1 ½” wide ribbon)ThreadPattern/Tracing/Tissue paperSeam allowances are 1/2” unless otherwise noted.(NOTE: I have chosen to serge most of the seams rather than sew them, so myimages may differ slightly from yours.)Instructions:1.
Begin by making a pattern piece out of tissue paper that is 27” long by 10”wide. Label this pattern piece “1-SIDE”. (This piece will be placed on thefold to create a fabric piece that is twice as long as the pattern piece.)2.
Create a second pattern piece using the same dimensions but label this one“2-END”. (NOTE: If you do not wish to make pattern pieces, you maysimply measure out the dimensions on your fabric using a yard stick.)3.
You will need 4 pieces of pattern “1-SIDE”, placed on the fold of the fabric,as well as 2 copies placed on the fold of the batting. (see image below)4.
You will need 4 pieces of pattern “2-END” cut from fabric, as well as 2copies cut from batting. (see image below)
