{DIY} Toddler Bed Fitted Sheet

Toddler bedding set can be pricey, especially if you are looking for some character set like hello kitty.

So when I saw a hello kitty fabric from Hobby Lobby that was 40% off, I grabbed the opportunity & got so excited to the idea of diy'ing a toddler bed fitted sheet.

I'm so glad that I took that opportunity because my little girl now have this.

But let me share how easy it is to make this fitted sheet.

Lay the toddler mattress on top of the fabric to mark where to cut & sew.
Fold about 1 to 2 inches of fabric from the edge and start sewing around all four corners of the fabric. 

Important: Make sure that you leave an opening from where you begin sewing and where you end and that there is a continuous opening all the way around.  This is to ensure that you can drawstring around it.
It just took me around 5 minutes to sew around the fabric to have this.  
Yes, proud of myself because I know how to use a sewing machine now! woot!woot! happy dance***
I used this kind of string but it snapped while I was pulling it around the fabric...too weak.
So I used this one instead and this one seems to be sturdy enough.
Then loop the string with a safety pin to guide your string inside the opening.
Pull the string inside the opening all the way around the fabric and tie it. 

Making sure that your fitted sheet fits properly around the mattress.  Tie the string & voila you're done!
So happy! I love how easy it was to do it & how nice it looks.
Now I'm not so intimidated with sewing machine anymore, like what happened here.  I'm so glad that I have my mom around sewing all the time.  Watching her work around the sewing machine just boosts my confidence level that there is nothing to be scared of.

I think I have a new bff, and I'll call her SM.

So watch out for more of my sewing adventures!

  5. What makes support issues even worse for down is that over time, the soft fluffy down feathers become closely packed together. Not only does this detract from the feathered bedding's support, it also makes the softness and fluffy quality of a down mattress disappear. Be willing to replace your down mattress in about five years if you need sleeping support at night. This is a high price to pay given the premium for bird feathered bedding.


  6.  Coverings such as polyester and other synthetically made linens are not as sympathetic to our bodies needs as natural products are. Down, wool, cotton and silk are all examples of natural products seeing resurgence in the bedding market.  Silk Pillow Free Shipping and Free Returns
