It seems like the selection of changing pad covers in the market is a little lacking. I see the same changing pad covers in every store! Thankfully, Prudent Baby shared this simple tutorial on how to sew a changing pad cover and I just had to try it.
The only problem was that I didn’t own a sewing machine. In fact, I didn’t even know how to use one!
So I went to Amazon.com and purchased this little sewing machine. I purchased my fabric and other materials at a local shop and in less then 2 hours I had a set of matching crib sheet and changing pad cover.
You can follow the same instructions for the changing pad cover to sew your custom crib sheet. The only things that vary are the length of the fabric and the length of the elastic you will use.
Changing Pad Cover:
Fabric size: 48″ x 32″
Elastic length: 36″
If you would like to use two fabrics, like the Prudent Baby sample, you need
Accent Fabric: 17.5″ X 32″
Main Fabric: 30.5″ X 32″
Fabric size: 72″ x 48″
Elastic length: 56″
Please leave a link or email pictures if you give this tutorial a try. I would love to see how your custom sheets and covers turned out.
