Hi all! My husband and I just got some wonderful news recently, I'm PREGNANT and could not be happier to start sewing mini-sized stuff.

I don't know yet if it's a boy or girl, but I have been looking on Pinterest and Etsy for ideas on nurseries, and ran across this seller: http://www.etsy.com/listing/81330955/custom-crib-bedding-you-choose-the

I love her crib bedding, but $350 is just not in my price range (especially b/c I want to have more than one set, in case of accidents/drool/etc. Have any of you used patterns to make your own crib bedding?

I have!  I made pleated crib skirts, and the pattern I used (Simplicity 3795) also includes instructions for bumpers (if you're doing bumpers), fitted sheets, and other accessories.

I know (though I didn't use them, as I wanted the "clean" look of a pleated crib skirt) there are other patterns for gathered crib skirts as well.  Simplicity 3954  has a gathered crib skirt, fitted sheet, bumpers and window treatment, too.  Simplicity 2279 does, too, as does Simplicity 9140, which looks like it has a pattern for a quilt/blanket that's similar to the one you like from etsy. 

None of the sewing was hard, though it does take some time, and quite a bit of fabric.

Mama to baby twins.  Frantic crafter while they nap!

Wow, thank you lil_abi! Four patterns in one response  Shocked !! I love all of the little accessories in Simplicity 3795, and you're right the other one does look like the blanket I liked. Bookmarking all four.

I would get the patterns mentioned below and if you are already skilled in sewing then go for it. If not, then get cheap sheets at a thrift store to create crib sheets. I have a lot of old bed sheets from when my kids were small that I cannot wait to turn into crib sets for their children in the future. I have star wars return of the Jedi for my son when he finally gets a son, or daughter. Lol Congrats!

I just made a valence and crib skirt and sheets for my baby boy (due tomorrow!!) and I didn't buy a single pattern. It's really some of the easiest sewing in the world! There are tons of tutorials online that can help you if you get stuck, but it's really just a bunch of rectangles. Here's some of the tutorials I referenced:

Sheets: http://www.danamadeit.com/2008/07/tutorial-crib-and-toddler-bed-sheets.html
I did them a little different, but her measurements were nice to have.

Skirt: http://www.kdbuggieboutique.com/2011/02/crib-skirt-tutorial-nursery-makeover-on.html
I used this method but adjusted for the height of the baby mattress being at it's highest setting and used two contrasting fabrics. It would be easy to use ruffles or pleats instead.
