Preparing a nursery is possibly one of the most exciting activities for prospective mothers, but it can quickly be discouraging if they cannot find the theme they want. For moms-to-be who can’t find their desired theme or style of rustic baby bedding, tailoring baby bedding can be an exciting option. Creating custom baby bedding is affordable, will result in bedding that is unique and can serve as a cherished souvenir when the baby is older.
Determine a theme or color scheme. Choosing a theme, such as sports, butterflies, princess or dinosaurs, will help limit the number of options available to customize baby bedding. If there is no particular theme, choose a color scheme for cribs and baby blankets. Use on transfer. The easiest and fastest way to customize baby bedding is by applying to transfer. Look for thematic iron on s at local craft stores or design your own on a computer and print them on transfer paper. Arrange the transport on bedding to determine a preferred layout and then heat them on using a regular iron. Wash all items after attaching the transfer to ensure adhesion before use.
Sew initials, quotes or passages from books. Through embroidery or monogram foot otherwise ordinary baby bedding, you can create a truly unique piece of crib bedding. Include the words to your favorite song, your most cherished children’s book, and Bible verses or wish you have for your new baby. These can be sewn on the rustic crib blanket, crib bumper pad or dust ruffle but should not be added in the crib as this can irritate a child’s delicate skin if put on. Also, if sewing or monogram is not an option for you, many local companies offer this service for a fee.
