Baby Project No. 3: Baby Crib Bumper

Baby crib bumper is a very common baby product, where it is put around the the baby cot to avoid baby's legs, hands or head trap in between the cot slats.

Well, initially I wanted to get one set of the bumper but was like S$100+ for one set (without bed sheet). It's so expensive. So, I've decided to make one. Thought it would be easy...

I wanted to get a cute material to make the bumper and it has to be like more than 2m long... Cos, normal baby crib bumper is around 2m long. Went to Chinatown and Spotlight but just couldn't find suitable fabric. UNTIL, I went to IKEA last Friday!

I saw this cute fabric from Ikea, but it was a quilt set for children. My hubby said, can buy one set and dismantle it, since it costs around S$12. Not very expensive. So, we bought and I started to dismantle it that afternoon. WOW!! True enough, the fabric was measured around 2.5m by 1.5m. It's big enough to MAKE TWO SETS of BUMPERS!! Besides that, the fabric is thick and the cartoons are so cute.

So, I've completed the first set of bumper which I did it for the first time yesterday afternoon. Pretty tedious.... Especially sewing the pad. :( I've put two layers of pad so that it's thick enough. If you look carefully, the sewing was badly done.... But hub said, it's OK, baby won't notice... hehehehe
