After about 25 hours of sewing (I'm not as fast as some of you out there) I finally finished the crib set for my bff.  The fabric is Ponies by Michael Miller and is a discontinued fabric so I had to hunt it down on ebay 3 times to get enough *and I ended up with too much at the end**.

I am pleased with how it turned out.  I used patterns from sew4home and this http://bundlesoflove.org/CribSheetsPattern

Somethings I learned from this project:
  • I prefer to work with measurement type patterns than the old fashioned paper kind.
  • I can break 4 needles during the course of a crib set project (2nd time making, broke 3+ needles each time)
  • I thought leaving a space at the bottom of the bumper instead of the side was easier and neater to close up by hand.
  • I always need a "warmup" project to get back into the sewing thing if it's been a while.  Luckily I had one this time or I would have been in trouble
  • I will not make ties from fabric again... ever...
  • Half sewn bumpers left on the floor means it's fair game for doggy beds.

Three sided crib skirt (when I was conserving the cowgirl fabric I made the executive decision to only make a 3 sided skirt)

I am normally not a horse person at all, but I love this! So cute. Any little girl's dream (including mine back in the day). Great job!

What a thoughtful project for your friend.  You did a nice job, and I really like that fabric. Smiley

You can't ever go wrong with a Michael Miller print, shame it's always so hard to get your hands on enough.  That whole set looks gorgeous, you really did a great job Wink  That nursery will be the envy of all the babies!
