Crib Bedding for Baby Charley!

Meet baby Charley!

Remember my friend, Abby? Charley is her too-cute-for-words baby girl, born in October!

And here is baby Charley’s perfectly-unique crib bedding set, designed and sewn by her Aunt E (that’s me!)

Her mommy did not want crib bedding that screamed “pink!” so we started with a base of soft white, spring green, and barely blue, and I added small pops of pink by way of trim on the crib bumper and ties.

The material for the crib bumper came from a Rachel Ashwell sheet set-purchased new from Target, and re-purposed for Charley. Crib ties are remnants from Rachel Ashwell’s fabric by the yard collection which I used some years ago to make a quilt.

The tailored crib skirt is linen, lined with white chenille for yummy texture and baby-softness. I used remnants of the fabric from the crib bumper to accent the skirt.

I did not use a pattern when creating this bedding because I wanted to design my own “pattern” and have it be my own.

I have learned that ironing and capturing a good quality picture is the hardest part of crib bedding design and construction!!!!!! I am hoping that a better quality camera is in my near future as I continue designing crib bedding!
But for now, this set is a wrap and en route to Baby Charley and mommy Abby!
I think it is the perfect combination of color and vintage baby style and I am so thrilled to be able to share it with you friends!

Stay tuned for big things to come with the Rare & Beautiful Treasures line of baby and crib linens!

Love and Appreciation,

  3. Lovely and inspirational. I am doing the crib set for our first Grandchild….and I couldn’t have a more fun project to work on. Our baby girl ( we are PRETTY sure) is due in March. The sewing hasn’t stopped since I heard the joyous news!!!

  6. It’s perfect! So simple and vintage. I love the Target Shabby Chic line. You are so creative! I bet Charley’s mommy will love it!!

  7. I love it…so many crib sets are so bright and crazy and pink pink pink, but I think little Charley will sleep well with the softness and muted colors and sweetness of it…it truly looks comfie.

  8. Very nice bedding indeed for the crib.What a lovely little baby you are blessed with…take good care and keep him warm with your love.

  9. Also want to share- 23 years ago I designed and made the bedding for my 2nd daughter’s coming. She was due on March 16th and I was convinced (my own head) that she was a he. So I made a mint green set with appliqued boy fishing (for Pisces) Well she was born March 26th 1987 and is an Aries!!! Of course I used it anyway- the love put into it was what was important.
