About two months ago we lowered Norah’s crib after we found her doing some sort of version of this.
Suddenly I found myself with some left over fabric that I made her and had been using as a crib skirt. And I sure as hell wasn’t about to waste an inch of that precious fabric. So. It was time for a pillow fit for a nugget.
Actually, I set the fabric aside for about a month, then one day knocked it out in about 10 minutes. Which is pretty much life.
I sewed three sides, stuffed it with some leftover stuffing, then sewed up the remaining side. I didn’t have enough fabric for an envelope pillow and the pillow size is “custom” anyway, because we like to keep it fancy in this house.
Right now it’s perfect for when I nurse her down. But someday she’ll be able to use it in her crib or bed and spruce up that baby jail. Hardcore baby is hardcore.
