DIY Crib Sheet

Another fun and quick sew! Pair with the change pad cover for a matching set, perfect for gifting or designing your own nursery. It goes together much the same as the change pad cover, just a few measurement changes!

Supplies Needed:
1 3/4 metre fabric – you can use anything this is 44/45″ wide- quilting cotton, flannel, knit, etc.
1.5 metre (58.5″) 3/8″ elastic
coordinating thread

1. Cut Fabric into a 45″ x 69″ piece. If you have 1.75M of fabric, you shouldn’t need to do any trimming at all. There is no need to trim off selvedges, they will be hidden in the hem.

2. Fold so all 4 raw corners of the piece are on the same edge, all on top of each other, by folding the piece in half, and then in half again. Cut an 9 inch square from all the corners simultaneously.  You should have 4 separate 9 inch squares left. Make sure you are not cutting any corners that contain a fold of fabric.

3. Iron hem along each of the 4 long edges.  First 1/4 inch, then 1/2 inch to create the elastic pocket.

4. Sew each corner edge to edge to create the corners using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Be sure to backstich at the beginning and end. Ensure the ironed hem is unfolded before you sew, or else you will not be able to thread the elastic all the way around. There are 4 corners that will be sewn.

5. Sew hem, leaving a 1-2 inch gap for threading the elastic.

6. Use bodkin or safety pin to thread elastic.

7. Sew elastic ends together and close the gap in the hem.

8. Congrats! You have created your very own change crib sheet in no time flat!
