Since 80% of this project was created with re-purposed materials, I figured I could post it here. Anyone who disagrees can meet me in the parking lot after school. Just kidding.
Our crib is a vintage classic. It was my husband's, his mom's and his aunt's crib when all were wee. Given that standard bumper's don't fit since there are no slats on the ends. I had to make my own. I used old towels as the interfacing and stuffing was hand plucked by our dog from various pillows. It was a pain in the $%^# to sew but I am so happy with the finished product.

I would have better pictures but someone was 'helping' me with the camera.

More later... once I clean up all her messes!

Great job!  It's such a great idea to reuse an heirloom and work around its limitations rather than get rid of it!  And your baby has beautiful eyes!

Wish on everything.

Sometimes the questions are sophisticated and the answers are simple.
