Hello Craftiness readers!! When Jess asked me to do a guest post, I was considering a few different ideas I had previously had and never done, related to baby. One being a Ruffled Crib Skirt. After thinking about that for a few days, I decided I wanted to do one for my daughter's new (to-be "Shabby Chic") bedroom. So I did one in a twin size, but just pretend it's for a crib-which I think would be adoreable for baby bedding! :)
-Pleated bedskirt (I got a microfiber one from Walmart for $2.50!!
-Variations of ruffled lace (again, got all of mine from Walmart. It's cheaper.) I got about 8 yards of about 9 different styles for a twin. I figured I could use the scraps for pillows to coordinate
-Sewing basics (machine, thread, scissors, etc.)
Begin the lace at the bottom of the bedskirt, letting it hang over just slightly. Pin and sew a zig-zag stitch along the top.
When you get to the pleate in the center of the bedskirt, keep the pleate closed and sew the lace right over it. (You can also stitch the pleate closed to make it a little easier to keep it straight)
Layer the lace, allowing the bottom of the new lace to only slightly overlap over the top of the previous lace.
And there you have it!! A cute ruffly bedskirt for your sweet little girl!!!
