Note: this is not a suitable project for small babies/infants.
Step 1: Materials
- sewing machine
- piece of paper (to make scalloped edge pattern piece)
- erasable marker OR dressmaker's chalk/pencil
- measuring tape
- a ruler and pencil
- ribbon OR double fold bias tape
Step 2: Measure your crib
Here were the measurements I used, but you can adjust yours to accomodate your crib. For each measurement I added 1" as seam allowance.
Roof: 55" by 32"
2 Long sides: 55" by 43"
2 Short sides: 32" by 43"
Step 3: Cut out your pieces
Short side: cut 2 pieces 32" by 43"
Long side: cut 2 pieces 55" by 43"
Roof: cut 1 piece 55" by 32"
Step 4: Draw on outline for door and windows
You can make your door and windows however large/small you'd like. Here are the measurements I used
Door: 21" by 17"
Windows: 9" by 10"
Step 6: Add Ribbon/BiasTape
Step 7: Sew on Ribbon
Step 8: Create scalloped edge
Place your scallop pattern piece about 1.5 inches above the edge of your fabric and trace around the top edge with your erasable marker as shown.
Repeat this process all the way down the length of your fabric. You will need 4 pieces 55" long, and 4 pieces 32" long to match the lengths of the upper edge of each of your walls.
Step 9: Cut out scallops
Using these two scallops place them right sides together, pin in place, and sew a seam around the curved edge with a 3/8" seam allowance.
Turn entire scallop right side out and iron.
Repeat for remaining scallop pieces.
Step 10: Sew pieces to roof
B) Place the roof piece right side down on top of that, lining up the edges. Pin in place. Trim off any excess scallop. Sew along the edge with a 3/8" seam allowance.
You now have one side sewn onto the roof. Repeat with remaining 3 sides sewing them onto the roof with the scallop sandwiched in between every time.
Step 11: Sew wall pieces together
Now sew the wall pieces together by placing two walls edges right sides together, pinning in place, and sewing a 3/8" seam. Repeat for all 4 walls.
Make sure to zigzag or serge all the inside seams.
