But, I bought PBK bedding for Tyson's room and while it is beautiful and I still love it, as a second-time mom I know crib bedding actually gets very little use. Tyson's beautiful crib skirt had to be removed as soon as we lowered his crib for the first time. It was a big expense for something that we only ended up using for a few months.
When I read the crib skirt tutorial on Young House Love, I knew I could make a knock-off Harper bedskirt myself. I already had the white fabric. It was from grommet curtains that rusted the first time I washed them. FAIL. At least the rust allowed me to salvage some of the fabric.
I went to Hobby Lobby and bought 2 kinds of ribbon and 2 rolls of Heat & Bond tape. After about 2 hours of measuring, cutting and ironing, I had my crib skirt. Not bad for about $9! Now I won't mind as much when I have to remove it to lower her crib. But, I can always change the length of the fabric too! Total win.
