Yeah, the bumper is on the outside. I didn't want to use it in the crib, but it felt like such a waste to put it away since it came with the bedding set. I can't remember where I saw it, but someone else used theirs as a valance. So if it doesn't work being on the outside, I will probably try that next.
kirby_kurd: Congrats on your baby girl. I'm anxious to meet mine as well. I did not make the bedding but I definitely considered trying to screen print a set because I was having trouble finding things in my price range that fit my aesthetic.
