I obtained a request from my daughter some weeks ago asking if I ought to make a top sheet for my grandbabe’s little one mattress. Hmmm, probably. I’ve made crib sheets but hadn’t made a pinnacle sheet earlier than.
The dimensions of a crib mattress are 28" x 52" x 5" (sizes range a little but it’s the average length) so the measurements for the sheets needed to be about forty five" extensive and at least 65" long. Many of the top sheet styles I looked at use 69" for the length.
I offered 4 yards of 45" extensive material for the sheets; 2 yards for every. After the material become washed and ironed, I cut out the sheets. I started with the geared up sheet. With the width already the correct size, all I needed to do was reduce the length after which cut an eight" square out of each of the four corners. It turned into exceptional easy to degree the squares the use of my reducing mat, a rotary cutter and clean craft ruler for cutting the instantly traces.
With the cuts entire, I grew to become beneath 1/four" along all 4 aspects, ironed it flat then turned underneath a further three/8" to form the casing for the elastic. I then stitched each of the corners with right sides collectively, to make the pockets. When that turned into performed, I sewed near the threshold of the casing, leaving an opening of one" so I ought to thread the elastic.
GAMBAR3 I cut 60" of elastic for the lowest sheet. Using a large protection pin that I had connected to the quit of the elastic, I threaded the elastic through the casing. This takes a chunk of time to do as you want to transport the cloth alongside the elastic to even it out as you’re threading it via the casing.
When I reached the end of the casing, I sewed the 2 ends of elastic together then sewed the casing establishing closed. That’s all it takes to make a fitted sheet!

For the pinnacle sheet, I determined to make two nook wallet at the bottom of the sheet. This could preserve the pinnacle sheet in place, preventing it from coming undone throughout the night and getting tangled up around grandbabe. I began with sixty seven" for the length because I thought sixty nine" might make it too lengthy for the mattress and then reduce a 8" rectangular from the bottom corners. Since both portions of my fabric were revealed with a one-manner design, I needed to make sure I changed into making my cuts at what would be the backside of the bed.
Once the corners have been cut, I observed the same method used for the fitted sheet to shape the nook wallet and make the casing but for this sheet, the casing is sewn about 12" on either side of the 2 wallet. I ironed 1/four" along all sides of the sheet. I then created a hem alongside the two long aspects and the lowest in which the pockets were and stitched it down, leaving an opening on both facet of every pocket wherein the casing might be for the elastic. I reduce two pieces of elastic approximately 15" every to apply for these wallet
