    IMHO, 2 yards of fabric at today's prices ($20 + elastic) are a bit much for me unless the fabric reeeeealy speaks to me or it is an odd sized covering like the pack and play. Good idea though.

    I have no reason to make these, my youngest Grandchild is 10 YO. It was interesting to see it done.
    I did look at how she makes a bag to hold plastic bags. That was very interesting too. I always like to see how things are made. She has a tute how to fold fabrics onto comic book boards.

    you only need 1 yard of material for pac n play crib sheets http://sewing.craftgossip.com/tutori...ay/2011/06/11/ - I was just looking for some new ones on line....they are about 20.00 and up - the more designed materails the more the price. http://sewing.craftgossip.com/tutori...ay/2011/06/11/

    Here is a very easy tute for crib sheets...I am thinking how fun it would be to use a bunch of scrap materials that I have. Maybe use muslum for the back side...or even quilt a sheet...hmmmm...a quilted Pack and Play quilt....why not...; ) http://www.imperfecthomemaking.com/2...ib-sheets.html

    1 yard for pack n play sheets at 3$/yard is quite a good deal. I might look into that when I venture out. $20 ready made? Accckkkk I'm old.

    tI made a bunch of coordinating crib sheets for my twin granddaughters. The high quality fabric has lasted for 3 years so far and is still going strong (they are late at getting out of their cribs). The only change I make from the tutorial is to use a serger instead of the french seams (though I may try those next time). With the smaller seam, I cut the corners as 9" instead of 8". I also use the serger to apply the elastic instead of using a casing. Much, much faster! I have a Bernina serger and it works great with the "Elasticator" foot. I tried using a Brother serger and elastic application foot one time, but it was not nearly as effective. I can make a sheet in about 20 minutes from ironed fabric.

    I've made these for years. I cut the fabric at 69 inches, instead of using the entire 2 yards. I also cut 9 in squares for the corners and use 80 inches of elastic. Everybody loves them. For my last DGD, we used Moda Panache for her nursery and it was totally coordinated--from curtains, bedskirt, bumper pads, sheets, burp pads. I think we used every pattern in the entire line and it was precious!

    My DD fosters Great Danes so they can be rehabiltated (I couldn't do it as I would be the crazy dog lady!!LOL), she uses a crib bed for her danes, thanks for the suggestion for sheets for a crib bed. She will be making some sheets as I sent her the sites. Thanks Carolaug!

    Thanks for sharing. I have a friend that is having a baby soon and I think I might try making some sheets to match the quilt.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    Would love to make these sheets! Is there a non-U-tube version of the instructions available?
