I was wondering if any of you have any crafty ideas or blogs to share on how I  can upcycle two sets of Crib Bumpers.  It would be fun to make them into something else useful to keep or gift to someone else.  The material is just to cute not to use again.

Thanks,
Wendy

quilt(S) or chair pads? the pink bumper fabric would make a cute lampshade cover.

soft sided storage baskets/cubes? make the four sides with the bumper. create a bottom with foam core board or chipboard sandwiched between two layers of coordinating fabric for stabilization. stitch sides to bottom.

Hi there -
I just saw a post here where someone made a pet bed out of old snow pants and thought you could do the same thing with these (hopefully you have a cat or dog?)...I LOVE that flowered bumper!
Maybe you could also make long pillows from them, by folding or rolling it the long way and cutting to whatever length you want (and finishing off the ends of course).  Neckroll pillows, lumbar support pillows or just a fun long accent pillow for a bed (that fits the width from side to side).  I also picture one that is the shape of a taffy candy, long with the ends tied off, like a wrapper.  You may or may not even need to stuff these.  Oh - I just thought of another - make one of these rolls to use for travel.  Think horseshoe shape - wrap it around the back of your neck and make it long enough so that there is a little bit of cushion on both sides to rest your head (great for kids too, who fall asleep in the back seat of the car and/or on an airplane). 
Hope you make some wonderful things out of your bumpers!
