I know I said I was going to post a "Tutorial" on how to make a crib skirt, but I discovered about half way through this project that once I got started, I was not very good about stopping to take pictures! I think I get was too excited when I saw the vision actually coming to life. So, I hope you are not disappointed, but instead here are some steps that went into this fun creation.

Ever have trouble making sure your hems are perfect? Try this trick: Use a piece of card stock measure out your hem allowance on the paper. Then fold the fabric up to the line on the paper and iron. Simple and consistent!
|Below you will see to 1/4 in lines. The fist line is for the first fold, and the second is for the second fold. So, this crib skirt had a 1/2 double folded hem.|
|Stitch hem in place|
You can make the skirt cover the entire bottom of the crib or just do three sides, as seen here.
Once I had the three pieces cut and the hems sewn, I got a little excited and forgot to take pictures! So below you will see the appliqued owls I did.
|Love the bright eyes|
|Sequences and hand stitching around edges|
|love this big guy|
I used a small piece of leather to make the branch under the three little owls.
The crib skirt was made for my cousin who is due in March :) I can't wait for that little man to arrive.
