- A twin or full flat sheet in the desired color. This is for a baby’s room, so be selective with the sheet (skip the yard sale ones and go brand new or one that you have and know where it came from)
- Matching thread
- Sewing machine
- 1/2″ or 3/4″ velcro- around 30″ length strip
- Using a sheet makes this project SUPER easy. Utilize the side and bottom hems to keep from having to sew a bunch of hems.
- Only make as many panels as you need. For instance, the back and one side of my cribs are against the wall, so no one will see those sides. Therefore, I only made two crib skirt panels.
- The most irritating thing about crib skirts is that, once the baby grows and the mattress is lowered, the crib skirt just sags on the ground. The method for this skirt allows the crib skirt to be adjusted according to the height of the crib mattress.
Adjust the panels to the desired height. Getting the panels right around the corners may be tricky, depending on how your crib is made, but a little adjusting will make them correct.
