Try to destroy this one, Lyla

Okay, who am I kidding.

When Lyla succeeded in bypassing her crib bumper and getting her arm stuck in the slats of her crib, I went on a quest to find a sturdier bumper. Never found one I liked, so I decided to make one. Of course, I bought foam, cut it up, THEN read the package where it said it is "toxic when burned, DO NOT USE FOR BABY CRIBS."

So I ended up using NuFoam. Not quite as studly as I was originally going for, but it should take Lyla a few days at least to break through to the slats again!

For anyone else who is contemplating this, Amy Butler has a great pattern for a crib set in her book Little stitches for Little Ones.

Wow, that is really beautiful. Did you do that from out of your head or from a pattern? Molly, I am with you... I wanted to make bumpers for Ev...and Joph. And never got around to it. Sigh.
