I finally finished the bumpers for our baby's room and they turned out really nice.  I used this pattern: http://www.poly-fil.com/nursery.asp except I used ready made piping and bias tape for the ties instead of using coordinating fabric.  

I bought letters from Joann's that I was going to paint.  Instead, I decided to cover them with fabric which was more difficult then I thought.  I ended up tracing the letters on cardboard and cutting a piece of extra loft batting to size.  Then I hot glued the fabric over the batting and cardboard.  Next I cut a strip of fabric one inch wider than the depth of the letter.  I hot glued that strip around the edge and folded the extra fabric over and glued that.  Then I glued the padded top on and a piece of orange felt on the back to finish them off.  

Anyway, this is my first post to craftster.  I have found a lot of inspiration here!

Those projects came out just beautifully. I also like your idea of using the bias tape instead of fabric ties, what a PITA to cut, sew and turn 48 of those suckers! I was thinking of using ribbon instead.. here is what I have so far:
crib skirt ( sitting on my slipcovered chaise lounge)
unfinished bumpers
store bought pillow

I have til Oct. to finish. What else are you doing in your nursery?

A tip for making those really narrow fabric ties turn right-side-out:  kelly clamps. I'm an RN and love using surgical and medical equipment to help me with my craft projects--I think it makes life easier! There's a reason that surgeons make such nice little knots on people! Anyways, you just put the kellys through the casing, clamp, and pull it right-side-out. Piece of cake!

Maybe would help if I told you where to find the Kelly clamps: any nursing scrubs store should have them.

I love the colors and the choice of fabrics.  So much nicer than any of the stuff at the stores.  I tried to find rubber ducky themes and had no luck at all.  Grandma picked out a pink and purple set that I like, but I'm already working on finding what I want to make the ducky stuff for the toddler bed.   Shocked
