I had a "Aha!" moment lying in bed one night to personalize the baby's crib skirt. I just loved the idea. It ended up being my favorite item in her room.
I made the crib skirt using a twin flat sheet and the letters are from regular cotton fabric. I didn't take any pictures of the process but I will number them out for you.
- Print off the name/letters from the computer. I used WordArt on Microsoft Office to make them the size I wanted. I think I put 2 letters on one 8.5x11" sheet of paper. Cut out the letters.
- Using a double sided Heat Bond paper, I ironed on the cotton fabric I was going to use to the top side of the heat bond paper. Then I traced the letter onto the fabric and cut them out.
- Peel the backing off the backside of the Heat Bond paper and iron them onto the crib skirt (placing them exactly where you want to go).
- I did a zig-zag stitch (using the sewing machine) around all the letters.
Sorry for the absence, I've been on vacation. More on that later...
