I was flipping through photos the other day, when I came across photos the crib rail cover I made my girs to stop her from biting and destroying their cribs any further.
Because I made it 3 years ago, before I blogged, I have only a few pictures. I’ll try to fill in the blanks as best I can.
Heavy-weight fabric, I used canvas
Thread/Needle/Sewing Machine *
*You could use all iron-on materials.
Measure crib. There will be 4 measurements you will need.
1. The length of rail, (A).
2. The height of rail at its tallest, (B). Don’t forget to double this number for the front and back .
3. The top of the rail, (C).
4. The “lip” underneath, (D).
Allow for a seam if making one, and cut fabric.
The length of my crib was approximately 60″. so I cut 62, to make a 1/2 inch seam on both sides.
My width (around the rail all of the above added togeher) was about 17″.
Including a 1/2″ seam all around my piece of canvas was 62″x 19″.
Sew seam, or use iron on heat bond.
Measure out rail spacing and iron on velcro.
On my crib (and I *think* all cribs) the spacing is about 2″, I also had to account for the big slat in the middle.
Put on crib.
