Oh...what to do with the adorable crib set once baby outgrows it?

I recently came across this awesome idea from CafeMom sgr123 in the Susie Homemaker group.

This smart mom repurposed her daughter's baby bedding into pretty accents for her toddler-ized room.


Here's what CafeMom sgr123 had to say about the baby bedding recycling project:

"The crib bedding I have for my little girl is so sweet. It isn't babyish at all. Very feminine and sweet.

I had no use for the bumper and sheet since she is long out of a crib. I wanted throw pillows for her bed, so I decided to make them from her bedding pieces. The rectangle and square pillows are both made from the bumper. It was two sided, so I have them laying on her bed, one side floral, one side quilted. The bolster is made from the sheet, which I cut and sewed hems. I used the batting from the bumper as the stuffing then glued the edge down. I used the ties from the bumper to tie the ends.

The crib quilt hangs on the wall as wall art, and I still use the valance and the other decor items. I also pinned the crib ruffle around the box spring as a bed skirt."

Wow, this is such a great idea, especially if you really love the crib set you chose for your baby. This is such a nice way to let the set grow with your child and a great way to save money on the big kid room makeover.

Great work, sgr123, and thank you for sharing this thrifty idea with us.
