As I mentioned previously, Alex can be a bit of a thrasher in bed. He moves from one end of his crib to another about 5 times a night – and of course, he bangs his head since I had chosen against bumper pads. Well, my decision has changed. Alex now has bumper pads. I dont’ feel bad putting them in because Alex is a very strong little guy and will roll over if needed. He also slept on a thick comforter when in Korea, so he is really used to padding.
I made the bumper pads out of the fabric I had bought to make a crib skirt, but since the crib when lowered doesn’t need a skirt, I had lots to use. I also made them with a pattern out of my own imagination – so they are not perfect and do nott cover the corners… oops! But that just leaves spaces for Alex’s little animals.
It felt good to be back at the sewing machine! I have an order from a friend for 1 weirdo and 3 bunnies – so I have to get sewing!
