Don’t you just looooove when you attempt a DIY project and it comes out even better than you could’ve ever expected?! Yup, me too!
I had fallen in love with Restoration Hardware’s washed organic linen crib bedding a while back and knew it’s what I wanted for Landon’s crib. Well friends. It ain’t cheap. And I needed way more important things off my registry…like a car seat and stroller. So I decided to make one myself. Naturally.
I came across this AWESOME ruffled crib skirt tutorial from Lemon Tree Creations and had at it. I wanted neutral bedding, so I purchased my favorite fabric EVER…a painter’s drop cloth from Home Depot. I spent $20 on a 9x12ft drop cloth, which I realized after the fact is entirely too much….but now I have some extra for pillows and other fun things! And I always like to have some in my fabric stash.
I followed her tutorial very closely, and it really was a breeze. I used a piece of muslin for the crib skirt base, but really you could use anything seeing as it’s not seen. And BAM. It came out BEAUTIFULLY.
If you have any questions on the process, feel free to leave a comment below! It looks like it’s been a few years since Lemon Tree Creations last blogged, so I would be happy to help you if you are trying this out yourself!
