Crib skirt

Crib Skirt

Step 1: 
Cut out your pieces

For your ruffles:
6 pieces 6" x twice the width of your mattress. 
3 pieces 6" twice the length of your mattress.

Hidden pieces:
One piece a few inches smaller than your crib mattress. (yellow)
2 pieces 5.5" x the width of your mattress. (green)
4 pieces 5.5" x the width of your mattresses. (green)

Step 2:
Make ruffles
Take your 6" pieces and serge one edge. 
(If you do not have a serger make them 7" and hem them)

Make your straight stitch as long as your machine will allow

Sew a straight stitch all the way across the top of your piece. stop sewing before you reach the end. pull the thread out long and cut with scissors

Pull out bottom thread until you get a ruffle the length or width of your crib.

Do this for all your 6" pieces

Then hem the ends.

Step 3:
Connect the ruffles to make a skirt:
Take your 5.5" pieces and attach them to the back of your top two ruffles.

Now stack your ruffles in order and connect to the top on the backing (green) pieces.

Step 4:
Once you have all your layers together attach them to your rectangular (yellow) piece and you're finished!
