crib skirt’s fabric
Posted On 01/28/2021 03:51:25

And your major problem with sewing is that you can’t cut crib skirt’s fabric into a straight line. (This step may have been particular to ME only. I hope you can skip it.) Recruit husband, who employs a straight-edge used in woodworking and construction to try to cut the crib skirt’s fabric straight. Seriously you guys – what is the secret to this?!

 

1. Hem all four sides of each rectangle.

Turn up 1/2 inch on each side, iron and pin, then sew. I bet I’m supposed to be using more technical terms or using bigger, more specific words here, but I’m embarrassingly bad at this. I beg your forgiveness. This is what each rectangle should look like, but multiplied in awesomeness by your massively better sewing skills than mine:

1. Attach each panel separately to the sides of your crib.

Eyeball the right height – I like the crib skirt to just barely skim the floor – and attach them to your crib. My crib has a flat, fiberboard bottom, so I used flat-topped thumbtacks to pin them in place.

If your crib mattress sits on a spring bottom instead, like this –

the pins won’t work and you’ll have to attach the panels a different way. One option is to sew on fabric strips which can be tied to the springs. Another option – what I’d probably do in my laziness – is to use a paper clip clamp

No one will see it and I won’t judge you.

 

1. Adjust height over time.

As your little one gets older, less slobbery and with grosser diapers, you’ll drop the crib mattress height and simply move the panels closer to the center of the crib mattress support. Clip or pin the edge of the panels closer to the center of the crib mattress, and it’ll always sit right where it skims the floor, never getting bunched up and terrible at the bottom. Magic, right

 

And that’s the end. If you’ve been reading here for any amount of time, you know that if I can do a sewing project, YOU can handle it with your eyes closed in ten minutes while composing a symphony or something, and probably without the use of a husband or straight-edge.


Don’t forget to pin this so you have the details when you need ’em!

Two smaller panels of crib skirt’s fabric for the sides: length of the short side (plus seam allowance) by height (plus 2 inches, plus seam allowance). For me, this was 28.5 inches by 22 inches.

shorten the crib skirt
Posted On 01/28/2021 03:49:01

We’re going to have a complicated relationship, you and I.

But here’s why this is fantastic: if you’ve bought a crib skirt before, you know they look nice while the crib mattress is at its highest setting, when your tiny spawn is at their smallest. But as they get older and you lower the mattress, the crib skirt gets too long and bunched up on the floor and messy and embarrassing and you start to hate your life. Exhibit A: Weston’s crib:

If only there was a better way!

Friends, meet the adjustable crib skirt. Here’s how you make it. Step one: Cut and hem three rectangles, then pin or clip them to your crib. The end.

That’s the short version. Here’s the longer version.

 

1. Measure your crib

You need three measurements. Length of the longest side, lengths of the two shortest sides, and height when the mattress is at its highest setting.

Your measurements will probably be pretty close to mine, but may not be exactly the same:

1. Cut your fabric.

I used a little less than 2 yards of 54″ home decor fabric for this project. If your fabric isn’t wide enough for the longest side, you’ll need to piece it together. (But if you’re smart lazy like me, you’ll just make sure it’s wide enough.)

 

Add about two inches to the height measurement so you have room for the crib skirt to wrap up over the top of the mattress support, and add an inch to all the measurements for a seam allowance. Cut three rectangles of crib skirt’s fabric:

 

One large panel of crib skirt’s fabric for the front: length of the long side (plus seam allowance) by height (plus 2 inches, plus seam allowance). For me, this was 52.5 inches by 22 inches.

interior part of the crib skirt
Posted On 01/28/2021 03:47:56

Take the crib skirt off the crib and lay it flat on the floor. Measure the crib skirt, from the bottom, and mark how long the crib skirt should be. My skirt needed a 10″ drop, but the drop was about 16 inches, so we had to get rid of 6 inches. I placed a pin 10″ from the bottom of the crib skirt (I used safety pins, which are much more cumbersome than straight pins, but important when curious little fingers are lurking).

 

Do the same thing all the way around, marking the desired length.

 

Now’s where things get real. Fold up the fabric, pinning it to the interior part of the crib skirt. Pin it to the part that will be covered by the mattress, then remove the pin you used as a marker.

 

Here’s a shot of it pinned:

So, I had 6″ to get rid of. I folded it about 3″ up (which doubled over, makes 6″). Are we following here? Am I over complicating this?

Then remove the pin you used as a marker:

Make sense? It’s really easy, and sometimes the easy things are the most complicated to explain. In a writing class I once had to write an essay about how to make a PB&J. We had to keep it to something like 20,000 words and with that limit, most of us only got as far as the part where you get out the bread.

 

Here’s a photo of the crib skirt shortened all the way around. It gets a little weird around the corners, but only because there are multiple layers of fabric to work with. The most important thing is just to make sure your folds are neat and flat.

And here’s the final product, back on the mattress platform. It looks so much more tailored and neat. And we don’t have to look for a new place to stash our table leaf.

 

Welcome to a stupidly easy tutorial for how to make a crib skirt. When I’m finished telling you how to make your own inexpensive crib skirt, feel free to slap me in the face for its simplicity, but then kiss me because it actually does kind of solve a global problem with mass-marketed crib skirts.

Make A Crib Skirt Shorter
Posted On 01/28/2021 03:46:53

Choosing a crib bed set was really fun for you when You was waiting for someone arrival. You didn’t know if he was a boy or girl, but there were still plenty of options.

 

Lots of parents used mostly navy blue in Baby’s nursery because 1) I was sure he was a boy 2) if I was wrong, I could add girly/pink/floral touches. You can chose Biloban’s  crib set. The only problem with the adorable set is, the instant you lower the crib, your crib skirt drags the ground and looks horrible. So most people just take it off, right? Then you pack it away when your kid is only like six months old.

 

You use crib for storage , and since you loved your crib skirt and didn’t want to store it away, soYou can shorten the crib skirt — without sewing (which is easier and makes it re-usable).

 

I’ve heard friends lament saying goodbye to their crib skirt too soon, so I decided to do a tutorial. (By the way, this is what moms talk about…ad nauseam. We talk passionately about crib skirts and germs on the playground. Remember when you thought your mom was like the MOST BORING EVER? You were right.)

 

Before you jump to conclusions, this isn’t nesting either. I did this almost a year ago and am just now getting around to posting.

 

After lowering the mattress, the first step is to measure how much of a drop you need for your crib skirt needs; from the floor to the top of the mattress platform.

Next, give your measuring tape to your baby and switch to a paper measuring tape that isn’t as appealing.

Padded Teething Rail Protector Tutorial

29″X6″ and 54.5X6″ for my crib rail coverr’s fabric. You will need to cut 2 of each size.

 

You will also need to cut 4 pieces of interfacing. I used quilting batting. 2 pieces are cut at 29″x6″ and the other 2 pieces are cut to 54.5″X6″

 

Now, we will cut the ribbon for the ties. I made them 4″ long. I found this to be the perfect length to knot. If you prefer to tie them into a bow, I would recommend adding 2 inches to the length of the ribbon.

 

I used 12 pieces of 4″ ribbon on the short sides of the crib rail cover and 20 pieces on the long sides so that’s a total of 64 pieces of ribbon.

 

Whew! Now that we have our measurements out of the way, time to get started.

Grab 2 of the 29″x6″ fabric pieces and one piece of interfacing.

Lay your interfacing piece flat then lay one piece of fabric on top of it where the right side of the fabric is up.

 

Grab your ribbon pieces and start pinning those in place. I space mine about 4″ apart all the way down. I also had to take into account that the corners of the crib came together in a way where I had to start at least 3″ in.

Lay other piece of fabric right side down and pin ribbon ties in place.

Sew around 3 sides of your crib rail cover’s fabric piece, leaving one of the short sides open for turning.

 

Clip the corners of your crib rail cover’s fabric, making sure not to cut the stitch. This helps get nice sharp edges when you turn the fabric right side out.

Turn your crib rail cover’s fabric right side out.

Ta-da! Almost done!

Fold in about 1/2 inch of the raw edges in and sew it shut.

Now, repeat with the other 3 crib rail covers and tie it on the crib!

figure out the crib rail cover’s fabric
Posted On 01/18/2021 00:05:54

To figure out the crib rail cover’s fabric, you need to add 1 inch to the length. Then to figure out the width, I doubled the thickness of the rail and added 1/2 inch to it giving me a total of 6″.

 

This gave me the sizes of:

 

29″X6″ and 54.5X6″ for my crib rail coverr’s fabric. You will need to cut 2 of each size.

 

You will also need to cut 4 pieces of interfacing. I used quilting batting. 2 pieces are cut at 29″x6″ and the other 2 pieces are cut to 54.5″X6″

Whew! Now that we have our measurements out of the way, time to get started.

Grab 2 of the 29″x6″ fabric pieces and one piece of interfacing.

Lay your interfacing piece flat then lay one piece of fabric on top of it where the right side of the fabric is up.

What are the benefits of a Crib Rail Cover?
Posted On 01/18/2021 00:01:58

 

Biloban crib rail covers are made with a great safety feature that you should look for:  the ties are secured through a button hole in the crib rail cover. That way, both ties are fed through the button hole and tied in a secure knot. We don’t recommend Velcro or buttons for safety reasons. Crib rail covers that feature buttons are not recommended. Buttons can be swallowed and are dangerous.

 

Fabric crib rail covers come in a variety of different patterns and colors. Biloban offers over 20 different styles, patterns, and colors of crib rail covers. Depending on the size of the front panel of your crib, an 18” crib rail cover works on almost all cribs. There are some that require the 24” size in order to cover the front wood panel.

 

Crib Rail Covers – Here’s the scoop on Do vs. Don’t

Always wash the crib rail cover before baby starts to stand up or pull up. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions!

Never buy a used crib rail cover for sanitary reasons.

Take the time to learn how to secure the rail cover properly. With the style that Biloban makes, this means bringing BOTH ties through the buttonhole, pull tight and secure in a knot, and then a bow if you wish. Make sure it is secure and tight.

Wash the crib rail cover frequently to avoid mildew from the drool.

 

Why is Biloban?

We believe in sewn-by-hand products. Our country’s standards for use of (and non-use of) chemicals and additives are strict, and we feel way more comfortable knowing where our fabric comes from, what the fill is comprised of , who is sewing the products (we are there all the time!) and under what conditions, including packaging, no exposure to chemicals, and more. We’ve heard stories about pesticides being sprayed on the boats coming overseas to ensure insects or animals (ewwww) don’t get in the crates. If all that makes you feel the same as we feel, you’ll know why we love and support made  crib rail covers and crib bedding!

 

 

As we all know,teething cirb rail cover can protector the crib railing.It is important for moms,especially for new mom.Here are a article for the teething crib rail cover tutorial. Hope it can help our mothers.

Oh sweet little baby beaver, how I love you but hate the teething on literally everything.

In an effort to save his crib, I decided to make a quick crib rail cover for the rails. And, bonus! It ended up adding a punch of color and pizzazz to his room.

I started off by measuring the crib and since I’m a visual person, I had to draw it out. Remember to measure the inside of the rail, not the outside. My measurements were 28″X53.5″ – yours will probably be similar but measure your crib to make sure. Also measure the thickness of the rail. Ours is 2.75 inches.
