This tutorial shows you how to make a fitted crib sheet. It is a great way to match your baby quilts/nursery sets to the crib sheets.
Supplies: 68" of 45" wide fabric and 2 yards of 1/4" elastic.

Before I had the fitted crib sheets in hand, I did a bit of quick research. The “standard” fitted crib sheet size is 51 5/8 inches long by 27 1/4 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches thick. This sounded like it might make an awkward size panel to work with once the elastic were removed, but I knew that the only way to find out was to get a crib sheet in hand and try! I received two different crib sheets made by two different companies. I will refer to one sheet as the World Map sheet and the other as the World Cities sheet.
