So I decided to make our baby girl's crib skirt out of the same material I used for the curtains. And I think it turned out very nicely!
I followed a tutorial I found at an awesome website called Young House Love. I won't waste my time writing it out for you -- you can just go check out that tutorial yourself if you're interested. Actually you should just go check out that website anyways, it's awesome! And I totally want their living room. Just sayin'.
The material for the curtains & crib skirt only cost me about $18. I used 2 rolls of heavy duty hem tape, which cost about $1.50 per roll, and a little bit of velcro. So all in all, I spent roughly $21.00. I'm pretty sure I saved us some money! Wahoo! Not only that, but I think they look 100x better than anything I could just go out and buy, because I was able to make them exactly how I wanted them (I didn't really want anything with animals all over it, and I didn't see anything else that caught my eye). I think that deserves an iced white chocolate mocha from Starbucks... right? I thought so too.
Here are a couple photos. One is without the flash, and one is with the flash.. because, once again, the lighting in there just awesome. Not.
The crib sheet is actually a really light pink, if you can't tell from the photos. It's from Target, and it's so soft... I need to get a few more! The crib is coming along nicely, I think! The nursery is definitely starting to look like a nursery. :)
