I found a cute critter print and some green to coordinate with it. I'm using two thicknesses of extra high-loft batting, so they're really puffy and firm. And hard to handle. I couldn't even attempt this without the walking foot, end even with it I have to pin, then baste the edges carefully to avoid puckers. (Wish I had some Wonder Clips!) Here's progress so far:
Crib bumpers in progress
The fabric repeat happens to be 11-1/2" so that's the cut height of all the fabric panels. The ones for the long sides of the crib need to be 52" so I had to piece the fabric. I couldn't cut strips lengthwise because of the one-way print, so I cut WOF strips and matched the print. Can you see the seam?
Close up, matched seam
Lots of binding
Gotta get to work to get these finished for CJ! Can't wait to cuddle him...

You have made great progress so far! Your matching seam looks wonderful, too.ReplyDelete
What an amazing job you did matching your seams - and I know that isn't easy with the way prints veer off sometimes! An adorable crib bumper. Enjoy your weekend with little CJ and your DS!ReplyDelete
These little critter bumper pads are adorable! Of course I love that print and the green you chose coordinates perfectly. Those matched seams are so pro! Would love to hear about your method. Want to share a tutorial? Have fun cuddling with your CJ!ReplyDelete
