  • You can totally do it! Even if you haven't done a lot of sewing before. There are patterns for the whole nursery decor...in one envelope. 

    Be sure you prewash the fabrics - so you will know that the colors won't run and nothing will shrink in the wash when the bumpers are done. Buy some extra fabric so you can make or trim other items; like a cushion for the rocker, or window treatments, or a diaper holder, or a pad for the changing table. There are simple patterns for all of these and more. GL :-)


    Here's a link to some:
