I've been looking in fabric stores and online for the perfect fabric to make the crib skirt out of, and looking for a ready made crib sheet that (a) went with the perfect crib skirt fabric and (b) wasn't crazy expensive. I haven't been having much luck. Most of the fabric I liked was over $10/yd and I wasn't finding any crib sheets that fit the above criteria.

Yesterday I was wandering around Walmart's baby section and I saw these cute polka-dot flannel crib sheets. They were inexpensive and the pattern matches the colours I wanted in the room, and is subtle enough that I figured I could probably find some fabric somewhere that would go with it. Lo and behold, I found a small bolt of inexpensive fabric in the craft section that perfectly matched the colours from the sheet. Woo! Here's the finished product...



It's a hard to tell from the photo, but the little polka-dots on the sheet are brown, orange, green and aqua. The nice thing about making it myself is that unlike store-bought crib skirts, this one actually goes down to the floor. Also, I made it so that it's adjustable. When I move the mattress down as the baby gets bigger, I can shorten the skirt so that it stays just touching the floor.

The other thing I found at Walmart were a pair of really cute dish towels. We live with my parents, and they have plenty of dish towels, so we didn't really need them. But I loved the colour and pattern and they were only $2, so I got them. Then I realized, while I don't need dish towels, I DO need a cover for my non-standard sized changing pad. The towels are microfiber, so they're really soft, and dish towels wash well, so I know they'll hold up. So this is what I made with them...
