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!
