I love to find new ways to use something. This weekend, we moved the girlie into a twin bed. The crib is shortly going to be used for a new resident so we figured it would be best to have her happily settled into a new bed so as to hopefully minimize any angst regarding said resident.
The mattress is an extra-long so I had to order a waterproof pad but didn't remember to order a bedskirt. So I tried my hand at remaking the crib skirt into a twin skirt. A little cutting and stitching later and there it is!
Matching little polka dots to the sheets as well.
Then I was looking at the little bit of fabric left over. (I didn't feel the need to go ALL the way around the bed, two sides seemed sufficient..) The easiest thing to do was sew a little ribbon along the top and make a twirly wrap-around skirt for the girlie. She seems to like it and hopefully it will fit easily for quite some time!
Here's the dilemma I am currently in. I want to make a headboard (something like this) for her bed as it feels as though it is missing something. Should I use the same fabric as her curtains or find something to go along with the polka dot theme? I already have more of the curtain fabric and it is a nice, heavy material, but I don't know if it would be too much of the same in the room. Opinions?
