I love to sew. I love it! I love it! I love it! Since I'm going with the Winnie the Pooh theme with the room, I found a cute bedding set for Ben's crib, but I didn't find a cute toddler bedding set. Therefore, I found some cute fabric at Walmart that I made sheets out of for Jackie. I got the idea from my friend Crissy who directed me toward http://www.sleepingbaby.net/. In the crafts section, there is a link to toddler bed sheets. I saw what she did and then worked off her idea for the bottom sheet. I didn't have 3 1/2 yards of the top fabric (there were only 2 1/2 on the bolt) so I imrovised the top sheet with an idea tha my friend and I came up with for a bunk bed cap. Here are the instructions with pictures for anyone who is interested. The sheets are very easy, even if you don't sew much.
First, I got 3.5 yards of fabric for my bottom sheet. I washed it and put it through the dryer. (For anyone who doesn't sew much, this is a very important step. You don't want your sheets to shrink after they're sewn).
Then, I folded them in half with the short ends together and the bright side of the fabric facing out.
Then, I cut the sides off to make them 34 inches by 60 inches.
After that, I measured and cut one three inch by three inch square out of each of the corners that would be at the foot of the bed. I did NOT cut them out of the top corners. (That would be both corners on the short side.)
Then, on the big sheets, I pulled the corners together where I cut the squares out. When they're pulled together, they make a triangle. Then, I sewed those corners together.
Then, I matched the seems of the corners I sewed to the ones on the opposite sheet with the right (bright colored) sides together. After that, I sewed around the two long sides and the side with the corners sewn together. After that, then I hemmed around the top edge. To make a hem, I just turned the fabric toward the wrong side of the fabric twice and sewed around it.
