Kathy and I are working out our strategy for the bed skirt. It takes lots of figuring and experimenting when there is no pattern.
Kathy has the bed skirt under control.
Marina is really good at using the rotary cutter.
Kathy and I wrestled with the bumper pad. Did you know that they have pre-made bumper pads? All you do is make the covering. We did one contiuous tube instead of making it in sections, and that meant a lot of work getting six sections poked down into the casing.
Marina is very relieved that we got it done, and that the nursery is nearly ready. Hope you like it, Marina, because you will be spending a lot of time in this room!
Kathy and I were amazed it came together in one day. It was lots of fun, and I am so happy we can sew. There is a little business in town that custom makes bumper pads, sheets, and the works (you pick the fabric) for about $800! We had a blast and saved a ton of money. So the moral of this story is--learn to sew, and then be creative.
