Don't lie, I know you've been losing sleep over the painfully slow progress in the nursery. So let's get on with this bumper pad! We wanted the fabric to coordinate with the crib skirt obviously, but didn't want exactly the same fabric. And since I'm a sucker for paisley anything, I immediately fell in love with this delicate, feminine paisley eyelet fabric.
I admit that I stalked some blogs searching for a cute bumper pad tutorial, but I just didn't find anything I liked. So with a vision in my head, I set out to create the pumper pad MY way!
It was important for me to be able to remove the pads in order to easily wash the fabric from time to time. So I just sewed on little pieces of ribbon to tie it off and keep it closed until it's laundry time!
And let's be honest... they have the potential to be adorable.
It took me a lot longer than I thought it would, and there were a couple times that I literally envisioned throwing my sewing machine out the window... but it's finally done! What do you say?
