I found this great fabric with the world map on sale at my local fabric store and I thought it would be nice to have it at home and teach Marco where some of our friends and family live.
I’m still a beginner at sewing but I discovered that I can actually sew anything… as long as it has a rectangular shape. That’s how I thought about using this fabric to make some sheets for Marco’s crib.
I followed this tutorial and I were amazed at how easy it actually was to sew sheets, even using an elastic band one the edges.
It’s nice to wash the fabric before, in case it shrinks. Also, measure the crib mattress to customize the pattern. I used a 12″ square instead of the 9″ suggested by the tutorial.
This project took about 2 hours but it was a lot of fun and I felt so good after seeing it done!
During the weekend, when I put him to bed, I told him where some of our dear friends and family live. He didn’t get much yet because when I asked for his aunt Barbarita -who lives in Barcelona- he pointed to Moscow… but we’ll get closer with some more practice!.
