    got the tutorial here:
    http://www.dana-made-it.com/2008/07/...ed-sheets.html

    very simple. the only issue i have is, they call for 45" (x 2 yards,) fabric, i could not even find seersucker in 45" widths.

    i ended up using quilters cotton..

    i have left the 1/4" elastic pinned at the ends, until i can get to my daughters to try it on her crib, before i do the final sewing up.I sure hope it will fit! if not, no matter, i cn make it into something else! no waste here!

    :thumbup:

    i also would not cut all 4 ends at the sme time again.(they show you how to fold it, so you can just make one 8" cut,for the corners)...for some reason they were not equal..
    so i would cut each corner out,seperatly next time.
    (if it fits!)

    thanks! i was lucky to find the bigger patterned fabric,that matched, at JoAnns.

    i will let you know if it fits or not. and then we can adjust from there. since it is for a baby shower sunday,i want to be sure!
    i even have a half yard to make a couple of burp cloths to match! lol

    best of all..i used the $5.00 off coupon,(had to spend $20 i think it was, the baby fabric was already on sale, and got to use the 50% off that day too! i saw some cute monkey fabric that would make adorable crib sheets!
    cheaper than buying the, in this case...

    It is a cute set. I think that it looks great and will be a great gift for the new baby.

    lovely. i can't wait to try it.

    i'd really like to know if the sheets will fit. it is impossible to find that width of fabric.

    you did a great job.
