This is the first one I've done but I bought fabric to do at least four more! I'm also going to make the curtains/crib skirt. I couldn't find anything in Dinosaurs that I liked (that was under $175 for the set) so I decided to make my own. Luckily for me Hancock fabrics had cotton on sale within a few days of me deciding this, lol. Here's a few pictures and a link (I used a combination of two patterns/tutorials I found online, here's the FIRST and SECOND) to the tutorial I used.

Just the sheet.

The sheet with the precious moments blanket and fleece blanket my g'mothers gave us.

Looks great! Crib sheets and baby bedding in general just kill me with how expensive they are!

That's for sure! This first one is really thin, but I wanted to make it out of the "cheaper" fabric, in case I messed it up. I want to make some out of flannel, which are just silly expensive.

I just read the tutes you had and wanted to let you know you can make the fitted corners without elastic, I fold the square that I removed in nhalf to form a triangle and the stitch the raw edges into the corneer with folder side out. Look at waterbed sheet and you will see what I mean, these triangular sections now fit under the mattress and it will not tug loose thus eliminating the need for elastic.

That's very neat! Thanks for the tip.

When I made my daughter's bedding, I was amazed by how simple the crib sheet was.  Good work on your pieces!
