So my son has learned to stand up (but not sit back down yet). And so he started eating his crib. Shocked



I made these as quickly as I could. So quickly, that after sewing up and trimming the seams on the first one, I realized the ribbon ties were on the inside. Angry But I have since fixed that, and now he chews on the rail guards instead of his crib.


If you look closely you can see the dog hair that is already on it. Undecided

Thanks. Some day I'll actually finish his nursery (he's 8 months) and I'll post pics of the whole room.

What a great idea. I never would have thought of that, and I love the fabric you chose. Oh, and the picture of him chewing on them is adorable.

Wonderful idea! I'm ashamed  Embarrassed  to say that I did nothing when my little one started doing this. I guess it's a god thing they make lead free paint now.

Such a great idea can be used for an older crib as well to help cover some of the wear and tare that happens Would be so cute with a matching quilt as well. Great job.

This is such a great idea! Love love love the fabric! & I'm interested in seeing the finished room (got a sneak peak of the wall there behind him in the crib & it looks pretty sweet!!)  Smiley

Thanks for all the kind words. It is a great idea... but it wasn't mine. I stumbled across a tutorial (which I did not use) while on the craftzine site. And I wish I could claim my concern was solely for his health, but we're planning on selling the crib when he's done with it and figure we could get more moola if it's not all chewed up. He did a remarkable amount of damage in two days. Wink

My cousin's daughter has recently learned the same trick, and I am just getting around to starting the same project for her since she asked me to think something up. I will model mine after yours!
