Being a new grandmother brings new things into my life constantly and it's wonderful.  My kids got us a used crib for the new GS so of course I've had to go craft for the new addition to the room to our family.  In order to have some place to put the new diapers, crib sheets, shoulder bibs, flannel blankets, etc I had to come up with something.  Then I remembered that I had one of these for my eldest.  It's been years since I've seen one so with help from the internet I kind of winged how to make one.  The only thing I would change\add is some type of tape\ribbon on the front seam going across at the top because the tension from the weight exposes the thread. This now hangs on the new crib.



Just after sewing them.


Close up of the design I copied from the bed bumper.  I cut out felt pieces and just glued them on.

I hope it looks right.

Thank you so much Purpley Goodness.  I am aiming for neutral colors since this is at my home. (I can always wish for more grandchildren.)  Thought these colors would work best for both genders.

Lovely! If you get a chance, I'd love to see some pictures of them in use. I think I know how it works, but I'm not sure. Or maybe I just need sleep lol.

I'd be glad to take pics of it in use.  Since I have zero storage space for his things I just put all of the sheets and flannel blankets and those smaller sheet things for protecting the sheets from the stuff that comes out of his mouth...forgot what they're called.)  The other one is full of about 3 dozen diapers. Don't know why I bought so many.  I barely used them but they were extremely helpful.
Right now I'm at the kids house taking care of the baby (he's asleep now) so when I get home this afternoon I hope to take some pics and post.

BTW all of the fabric came from my stash and the trees, grass and dragonfly are copied from the crib bumper.

raennn, I apologize for not getting pictures up.  I'm having some issues with my ancient camera.  Hopefully kids to the rescue today.  So frustrating.  Thank you for your patience.

Sorry for the delay.


I hope you can see how it is fulled with diapers, sheets and so on.  I just hang them on the crib since it's convenient for us.
Please excuse the unstaged picture.  I really wanted to post the picture sooner.

Fabulous! I really could use something like that for our babyroom. Did you use a pattern?

I googled all over the place at first.  Looked at various pictures, got the general idea then went for it.  I did find a great tutorial that helped a lot.

I don't have interfacing and didn't use ribbons or piping. I would suggest that you do use something to cover\reinforce the seam that connects the top part with the clothes hanger and the storage part.
It was fairly easy to put together after I figured out what I was doing.Hope you make one.  They are so convenient for storing close to the baby.
