It has always been more fun to sew stuff, knowing that someone close would enjoy them. My dear friend Katerina wanted an organic cotton bumper for her little girl. She chose to use the Birch Fabrics line MARINE which are simply adoring for a newborn baby crib.
Beautiful organic cotton prints are hard to find, and Birch Fabrics is providing a super cute series.
It was the first time I tried sewing a bumper, and while sewing I promised that I will never do it again. It was pretty difficult managing the length of the fabric. The best part is that I had a very good guide from the book: “Simple Sewing for Baby: 24 Easy Projects for Newborns to Toddlers”. It includes very good guidance on how to sew a crib bumper.
