When we found out that we had a grandbaby, I bought a pack and play for the baby to visit. Well, as much as I loved the baby staying with us, I hated the pack and play. It seemed an uncomfortable place for the baby to sleep. And as this was our first of hopefully many grandbabies, I decided to spend a little extra money and purchase a mini-crib. Exactly the same size as the pack and play but a piece of furniture with a substantial mattress.
Now as the grandmother, I do not want to set up a nursery but tucked this crib in the guest room closest to us. But the bedding had to match the room.
So I designed the bedding.... besides, I had made all my children's nursery bedding. Nursery bedding is very juvenile and I love a more sophisticated crib.
Found fabric to match the room...
And made the blanket and pillow.
And the bumper pad
The other side of the comforter is striped for a boy....
Look how well it matches the room.
I still have a dust ruffle to make but it looks so pretty in the room. And much more comfortable than a pack and play.
