make your very own cirb mattress pad
Posted On 12/30/2020 20:41:15 by Biloban

Step 3: Pin your vinyl around the cirb mattress pad.

Place your cirb mattress pad on a single layer of vinyl (vinyl is located in the 'utility' fabrics area of your local craft store - available in many colors). Make sure you have a buffer around the outside of the foam - 2 or 3 inches is sufficient.

 

Fold the vinyl over the cirb mattress pad, tightening the vinyl against the foam on the folded side (creating a vinyl-foam ...taco?).

 

Pin the top layer of vinyl to the bottom layer of vinyl around the foam. Try to get your pins as close to the foam as possible for a tight fit.

Cut off the excess vinyl.

Step 4: Sew around the cirb mattress pad.

Top-stitch around the three open sides, as close to the cirb mattress pad as you can get. You may need to squish the foam down a bit as you go.

 

Note: If you're wondering why I only pinned/sewed three sides here, the reason is that I am inherently lazy and cheap. The less work I have to do and the least amount of materials I have to use, the better. You could, indeed, pin/sew all the way around (you masochist, you).

 

Step 5: Make vinyl binding.

You'll need to make some binding to hide your raw edges. Cut 2 inch strips from your leftover vinyl - enough to cover all your edges.

 

If you need to sew several strips together, here's how to do it:

 

Place the two pieces perpendicular to each other at their ends. Sew across the two pieces at a diagonal.

Cut off the excess.

Fold open. Repeat if needed.

 

When you've got a strip of vinyl sufficiently long for your needs, fold it in half lengthwise. Unlike fabric, vinyl won't stay folded so you'll need to pin it to make it stay - do NOT iron! Vinyl is plastic, afterall - it will melt.

Fold the raw edges in to the center fold and pin. (Incidentally, this is the same method you'd use to make normal fabric binding.)

 

Step 6: Pin the binding to the raw edges.

Cut off the raw edges of the vinyl around the mattress to 1/2 an inch.

Fold down the end of your binding.

Apply the binding to the raw edges of the vinyl and pin.

Top-stitch around, back-stitching at the beginning and end. Again, try to keep the vinyl tight around the cirb mattress pad. Sew within a 1/4 inch of the edge of the binding.

And voila! You're done!

 

Behold! My new awesome cirb mattress pad versus the old, wussy mattress:

The final product installed. Now all I need are some new sheets!
